PhotoWalkers Assemble!!!

This is a wordwide call to action. If you are a photographer, whether novice or expert, you won’t want to miss Scott Kelby’s WorldWide PhotoWalk on August 23, 2008. First of all, you may be asking, “What is a photowalk?” It’s simply a social event where a group of photographers meet at a specific place and basically just wander the streets shooting anything that is appealing. The beauty of it is that you are amongst knowledgeable people that you can learn from and bounce ideas off of. You can even collaborate and get some really cool shots. The walk ends at a restaurant or somewhere that you can all talk and critique each others shots. As mentioned, this a worldwide event being put on in more than two dozen cities so far. So check the site and see if your city is on the list. Registration is free.

Also, if you want to read an interesting post from a man who knows a thing or two about photo walking, go and check out Scott’s blog. Today he has a guest post from Jeff Revell. Jeff is a Washington DC-based photographer who has hosted several photowalks himself and can definitely get you prepared. In his post, he discusses equipment, preparing for the walk itself, and what happens after the walk. It’s a good read whether you are preparing for a photowalk or if you are just curious what it’s like. Check it out here.

    Corey – I saw a mention somewhere that you were leading a walk, but I don’t see your name on any of the Florida groups. Are you leading one, or at least participating here in Florida?

    This will be my first Photowalk and I could not be more excited. We spend so much time alone walking the streets, paths or fields it will be good meeting others on the walk. We are very curious folks but we are either looking through our viewfinders or in photoshop seldom do we get the chance to talk with others and learn what make them shoot.

    Just this week I was shooting in downtown Chicago, tripod setup and cable release in hand, and a passer by stopped me and asked what I was shooting. We talked for awhile and we both had a great time talking photography.

    Thanks Scott for organizing this!
