All we can say is thank you to one of the greatest cities in the world.
It may be known for its architecture and food, but that isn't what separates it from the rest.
It's the people. Chicago is home to the best photographers in the world.
They're not the best simply because they can do anything with a camera. No. They're the best because they're also teachers.
They're patient and willing to share their decades of experience with those that wish to learn. Good luck finding that in NY or LA!
Without a doubt, I wouldn't be the photographer or person that I am today.
