This year it is on July-18-2009 a Saturday.
Photo walk is a social photography event where photographers get together, usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers.. They finally meet in a Pub, Pizza place or a restaurant, socialize and leave. Of course there is a competition and prizes.
The best part I like in this, is the socializing. I am hoping to meet some good photographers and take some tips/notes.
I've joined the 'Santa Cruz Group' and I am looking forward to the event.
Here are some stats from last year's event:
8.324 photographers register for local walks
47 Countries had participating cities
44 States in the US had Photo Walks
We had a total of 236 cities worldwide
More than 1,017,125 photos were taken on walks that day
If there is a group in your city why not join and have some fun !
If you don't have a group please start one and participate !
