Anne BelmontI enjoy many kinds of photography but nature photography, particularly macro photography, is my passion. I love looking at the world up-close, seeing the patterns, colors and textures in nature that might easily be missed. My career took me from being an art therapist to teaching young children and I love sharing the wonders of nature with children. I am a wife and mother to three great kids who have all left the nest, leaving me lots of time for photography. You will often find me at the Chicago Botanic Garden, camera in hand, and I enjoy blogging about what's new at the Garden.

Don BurkettA Pennsylvania native whose paying job drew me from the hills and valley's of Pittsburgh to the flat lands of greater Chicago. My interests in photography are diverse. I find interest in all genres and love the constant learning and challenges of this craft. Though when creativity wains I always revert to macro photography where you truly see beauty that is often overlooked.

Wendy BrightI hail from Milwaukee, but long held a secret crush on Chicago – until grad school when that crush blossomed into true love. I earned my M.A. in art history, specializing in American architecture. Although not required for school, my personal library of Chicago architecture books grew to unwieldy proportions; moving to my beloved Chicago was the only option. Having studied with the Chicago Architecture Foundation and with some of the best experts on the city’s history and architecture, I am eager to share my passion and knowledge of Chicago’s built environment with fellow photographers. In fact, one of my favorite things to do in the city is to explore with camera (or iPhone) in hand and let the the city show itself in new ways.
