Jason Wolf Digital Images offers interactive photography classes and photography tours in Chicago and is a great way to see the city and learn about photography at the same time! All classes are hosted as walking / interactive workshops that feature detailed / personalized instruction aimed at showing you how to use your camera (Point and Shoot or SLR) to capture images in real settings ..how you want them to look, on demand; because nothing is more frustrating than having that perfect travel image right in front of you...and NOT being able to capture it! For those less interested in the technical aspects of photography and who would rather learn about Chicago from a photographer's point of view, we do have less intensive experiences available as well.To us, it does not matter whether a student has a point and shoot or SLR, because photography is about capturing lighting and angles, not about how much you paid for your camera. Through our extensive experience and knowledge of all cameras on the market, we can teach them how to take the types of images they want, on demand, by showing them how to utilize their camera outside of the auto mode and achieve its and their full potential; and we do this by breaking down the technical components...and making them easy to understand and apply. So the next time they want to capture the perfect shot in a perfect..or imperfect setting...they can.

I really learned so much and am ready to travel with my camera. Jason really keeps it simple, that is his motto and he sticks to it. Nothing like doing it yourself to really learn something. Worth every penny
