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.
