Greetings from Queenstown, New Zealand (we popped over here after our visit to Sydney), where we're pretty tired, but we still have big smiles on our faces from the amazing weekend that was. First, before we go on — the group photo above is of the awesome group of photographers I led in Sydney Australia as part of the Worldwide Photo Walk (photo by Keith McInnes, who not only took this shot, but helped me immeasurably in coordinating my first ever visit to Australia). That's us in front of the iconic Sydney Opera House (more on that story in a different post, but many thanks to the great folks at Destination NSW for all their gracious help, and for their cool gifts for my walk group in Sydney). But, I did want to say, this was perhaps my best local group yet - just the…
It’s here!!! Today in nearly a thousand cities around the world my 8th Annual World Wide Photo Walk kicks off, and by tonight nearly 20,000 photographers around the world will collectively have taken literally millions of photos as part of their local Photo Walks. How cool is that!!!!
If you haven’t signed up for a walk yet: go here right now – find a walk near you and sign up free! (you can be walking with us tomorrow!).
If you’re already signed up to walk, here are SEVEN LAST MINUTE PHOTO WALK TIPS to make your day a success:
We're just 2 days away and then we're walkin' - so exciting!!! :) IMPORTANT: I've created a series of six videos packed with camera tips and photo tips just for folks who are registered for my Photo Walk this Saturday. If you're registered, keep an eye out for an email from me (that looks like the graphic above), and the sender is "Worldwide Photo Walk" (if you don't have it, check your junk mail). Anyway, I wanted to do these videos this year to help folks get their best photo walks images yet, and I hope you find it helpful. OK, I'll be back tomorrow with some last minute tips to help make your walk a safe and successful one, so make sure you check back here then. All my best, -Scott
Only 4 Days - it's this Saturday - Whoo Hoo!!! If you haven't signed up - it's not too late! Don't read about all the fun everybody had - come and be a part of it. Here's where you sign up (it's free): WorldwidePhotoWalk.com Can't walk? Don't have a walk near you? Still want to help? We're encouraging each photo walker to donate just $1 (one dollar) to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya, but if you can't join a walk with us this time around, you can still be super-awesome and make a $1 (or more if you like) donation to the Orphanage. Every single dollar helps. Here's the link to donate. That's it for today. I'm probably in Australia by now (it takes a lot of flights and time to get there), and looking forward to meeting all the great folks…
