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. We will be using both a smart phone and dslr. I will use a smart phone to capture more lifestyle, landscape images of you & Chicago and a camera to capture closer more portrait like images. 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 15 edited images and over 100 unedited images from this shoot. If you have any time requests, specific questions, have larger parties, or ideas for locations, please send me a message.
I am a professional artist and traveler with over 5+ years of experience traveling, modeling, and working with professional photographers. With my Bachelors in Fine Arts, I have taken multiple courses for the past decade to expertise my skills in photography, photo manipulation, and graphic design. From my education and experience, I have been allowed to pair with some of the top photographers in Asia. During my travels, I have independently captured my own professional portraits from solely a smart phone camera and apps. You can see my work at http://www.arthurmbraud.com/lifestyle-photos

We will be starting at the Chicago Art institute in the downtown loop. We will make our way to millennium park, the cultural center, the downtown chicago river walk, and along the way, through some alleys and sky scrapers in Chicago's beautiful loop. Though I have a planned route, I’m always open to ideas and changes :)
This is a photoshoot tour. I am not an expert of Chicago's history, but I know scenic & noteworthy areas of downtown. Please familiarize yourself with my style of photography. It has less of a portrait feel and more of a "lifestyle/travel" feel.
