About | Photography Unfolded



After meeting at the Out of Chicago Conference in 2015, we realized that our teaching philosophies were very similar, even though they were applied to different ways of shooting architecture: abstracts & cityscapes. Photography Unfolded was born in 2017 from our desire to create a complete experience around architectural photography.

Our mission at Photography Unfolded is to help creative-minded photographers explore the world of architectural photography. Through blog posts, eBooks, newsletters, photowalks and workshops, we thrive to provide hands-on, practical and creative training. You’ll be able to improve your entire creative process from shooting to post-processing.

Angie McMonigal

Angie is an award-winning fine art and commercial architecture photographer based in Chicago. She brings a detailed, thoughtful perspective to her work, whether for clients or through the workshops she leads. Having grown up surrounded by nature yet fascinated by the big city she’s called home for nearly two decades, she brings the meditative calm of her upbringing to a terrain that’s always transforming. Focusing more frequently on bold architectural details rather than sweeping cityscapes, her photographs celebrate those unexpectedly iconic elements hiding in plain sight.

An award-winning fine art photographer, Angie’s work has been internationally exhibited and published. Most recently, her Urban Quilt series was accepted into Catherine Edelman Gallery’s Chicago Project. She frequently works with art consultants, designers, architectural firms, and private collectors.
