  1. Great episode. I’d love to come to the Out of Chicago workshop, since I live right around the corner in Kalamazoo, but I just don’t have that kind of money. I could possibly swing a couple hundred total, but not the almost $500 it costs to do the workshop and your fashion event.

    1. Hey Eric! I released a limited number of single-day tickets. You can take two of Jim’s classes, go on the photowalk with Jim and I, and see 4 other classes for $149. Totally worth it.

  2. Even going only one day is worth it. I went last year and it was only one day and learned tons of new skills. The photo walks are an excellent way to see Chicago and network with other photographers. I am looking forward to this year and meeting Jim. You should go Eric even if its one day.
