Photo Walk? What is a photo walk?

I first heard about photo walks in June 2010. Two Trinidadian photographers, @chennette_net and @empresslilandra were talking about Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk and I was, well I was maccoing.

Of course, my first question was What is a photo walk?

Fast forward a little over a year and I’m writing this post to introduce and answer the What, Why, How questions of photo walking.

What is a photo walk?

Easy. It’s a walk. And you take photos. And have fun liming and being social with your fellow photo walkers. I’ll never say never, but unless otherwise noted all our photo walks are free and open to anyone.

Why have a photo walk?

Photo walks are an excellent way to get out and spend some time taking photos and meeting fellow photographers. If you’ve become accustomed to a specific type or field of photography they’re also a great opportunity to try something different.

Who should come to photo walks?

Anyone who enjoys photography. You do not need to be a professional photographer, or have a big fancy DSLR. There are usually at least a couple quite experienced and knowledgeable photographers on a photo walk, so don’t hesitate to ask questions.

Remember, it’s a social event too.

How do photo walks work?

Photo walks take place at a set date and time. Usually there is a predetermined route. Our past photo walks have been between one to two hours long and we’re definitely casual amblers, not speed walkers — need to give everyone time to explore and enjoy the route.

After the walk, we’ll usually meet up someplace for refreshments and to maco everyone’s photos.
