What you'll do

Standing in front of a camera can be quite intimidating. With experience both in front of and behind the lens, I will always do my best to help you capture the best natural travel photos in the city of Chicago. Worried about modeling in front of a camera? Don't be! I will always show you the photos before moving forward.

During this experience I will not only help you receive beautiful photos but I will also try to teach you insight about modeling and photography. This experience will be ideal for individuals who are looking for a city tour but would also love to capture some scenic travel and portrait images. I love to build positive connections with others, so this is great for someone who wants to be more engaged and collaborative with their guide.

I will be using a Sony DSLR to capture your candid and lifestyle moments. This includes both portraits and full body shots in every location. I'll do my best to teach you tricks for posing and snapping pictures. If you would like to learn more about the editing process or a photographer's "rules/guides," let me know and I am more than happy to share my knowledge.

You will receive 10 edited images and all unedited photos (usually 200+).

If you do not see a time that works for you on the calendar, please send me a message! I do accept large parties! Please select the "private session" option for 3 or more individuals.

Where you'll be

We will be starting at Wrigley Building in downtown Chicago near the river. We will make our way through the river walk, the Chicago theater sign, the Chicago cultural center, and Millennium Park/the bean. Along the way, we will walk through the concrete jungle allowing opportunity to take pictures under the beautiful sky scrapers of downtown Chicago. Though I have a planned route, I’m always open to ideas and changes :)

Arthur was great! Professional and have helpful tips. The photos looked amazing and he took them until I found ones that I liked. Helped me figure out what angles I liked and let me suggest photos. Well worth the money.

Our experience with Arthur was wonderful. As our photographer, he was charming and cordial. I enjoy hiring photographers when traveling as a way to capture our moments and showing us the most noteworthy views of the city and Arthur exceeded my expectations. Having a background in art, he has an inventive eye in photography. He eased any anxieties of being in front of the camera by encouraging you to do whatever felt natural. He provided great guidelines for posing and was always open to new ideas. Overall, it was a great experience!

I can't say enough good things about Arthur and this tour. I have no experience with taking professional photos and was very nervous at first. But Arthur and the group made me feel very comfortable. He helped me with my poses and I left with a newfound confidence for future photo shoots. He took us to the popular landmarks As a solo traveler, it's always difficult to take pictures but it was great to have a professional photographer there to capture such wonderful moments for me. He got the edits back to me very timely and I'm very pleased with how they turned out. Do yourself a favor and book with Arthur!

Not only were the places Arthur put together well thought out, but also the time of the day! I was initially nervous at how the pictures were going to turn out, but the camera was exceptional as well as the person behind it! Thank you for capturing our memories!
