Photography Unfolded was born in 2017 when we decided to teach architecture-focused workshops together. After meeting at the Out of Chicago Conference in 2015, we realized that our teaching philosophies were very similar, even though they were (at the time) applied to different subjects, albeit, both architectural.

Our mission at Photography Unfolded is to help photographers get hands-on, practical and creative training, allowing you to see your environment in your own unique way. We offer workshops, eBooks and private mentoring.

Angie McMonigal

Angie moved to Chicago more than 15 years ago and has been exploring the city with her camera ever since. Raised in a small town in Wisconsin, she approaches the urban environment with the spirit of someone who grew up surrounded by nature, finding moments of meditative calm in terrain that is 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.

Michael Muraz

Michael Muraz is an international award-winning architectural photographer, bringing technical precision and creative passion to his fine art and commercial work. Based in Toronto, Michael travels extensively, exploring cities and buildings with his camera. He creates emotionally stirring images that celebrate the most engaging details of the spaces he shoots.

Michael was born in France and originally trained to be an engineer. While studying abroad, he began to teach himself the technical aspects of photography simply to improve his own travel snapshots. He soon fell in love with photography as an artform and with architecture as a subject matter, discovering a craft that satisfies both his analytical and artistic sensibilities.
