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):

Can’t walk? Don’t have a walk near you? Still want to help the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya? Awesome! Here’s the link that takes you directly to the donation page (hosted by We’re trying to hit our goal of raising $35,000 for the orphanage (we’re already ahead of last year, which is just fantastic, and with your help, we’ll get there!). Every single dollar helps. Again, here’s the link to donate.

That’s it for today. I’m probably in Italy by now, and looking forward to meeting all the great folks here in just a few days, but for now, I’m off to the Dolomites Mountains (another place I’ve dreamed of visiting). I’m so excited I could just burst!!! :)



P.S. Could you please share this post with your friends and fellow photographers. We want as many people as possible to have a chance to participate in these photo walks. Much appreciated! :)


5daysSo….,whattayadoing this weekend? Why don’t you come and join around 20,000+ photographers around the world having fun, making friends, and taking millions of pictures?

We’re just 5 days away (it’s this Saturday) so head over to the official site and see if there’s a photo walk set-up near you (if you haven’t checked in a while, it’s worth checking again – we have photo walk organized in over 1,000 cities around the world. Plus, it’s free; you’ve got a chance at some amazing prizes, you’ll take lots of photos, and you’ll just have just a ton of fun.

I’m off to Venice, Italy to lead a local walk there Saturday – my first time back in Venice since 2008, and I’ve dreamed of going back for years, so I’m really psyched. I’ll be posting images to my Instagram and Facebook accounts – I hope you’ll follow me there.

See you here tomorrow for a Photo Walk update! :)


P.S. If you’re signed up for the walk, make sure you check your inbox for an email from us with more tips created for our walkers on how to get awesome images on your walk. 

Hi Gang, and greetings from the yummy cheese capital of the USA – Milwaukee, Wisconsin (here for my seminar today – looking forward to meeting everybody!).

So, here’s the scoop (well, as it relates to Photoshop anyway). Basically, Adobe would like your feedback on how often you’d like to see Photoshop updated, as well as your thoughts on balancing new features, bug fixes and polish to existing features.

They put together a quick survey over at this link

I took the survey myself, and you have lots of opportunities to share your thoughts with Adobe, by answering Multiple Choice questions, or by writing in your own comments (totally optional).

Anyway, this is so worth doing, and a great opportunity to be heard directly by the Photoshop team at Adobe — I hope you take advantage of it.

In other news…


It’s just 8-days away, and we have walks set up in over 1,000 cities around the world. There’s still plenty of time to join a local walk near you (it’s free, it’s fun, you’ll make new friends, you’ll take a lot of pictures, and you might even win a cool prize or two). Here’s the link to see if there’s a walk near you.

Here’s wishing you a fantastic weekend! :)



P.S. I’m shooting the Bucs/Rams home opener in Tampa on Sunday, but if you want to read a really shocking football photography “incident” that happened to me a few years back, read my story “Aaron Rodgers Owes me a New Monopod.” You will never forget it. Here’s the link.

You guys know I’m a big fan of Lightroom Mobile, and for the past few months I’ve been working on a Lightroom Mobile book, and I’m excited to announce it launches today!

Here’s the link to pick up your copy:

> Amazon (in print or Kindle edition)
> Barnes & Noble

…and of course it’s in bookstores now, so you can find it wherever cool books on Lightroom are sold.

I hope you’ll give it a look – I went really in-depth on the book, and I think it’s going to help a lot of people.

Just 12 days to my 9th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk
If you haven’t signed up for a walk, – now’s the time – we have over 1,000 photo walks in cities all around the world. Come sign up (it’s free, and open to everybody!).


New this year: the “Video Shot During the Photo Walk” competition
And our awesome sponsor, Canon USA, has put together an amazing prize for the winner of this category — They are giving away a Canon Video Creator Kit (seen above), to the best video submitted from the walk (the video has to be created during the official photo walk). The kit includes the new Canon EOS 80D Body; their new 18-135mm lens; a Canon Power Zoom AdapterRODE VideoMic Go; a 32G SD Card, and all the other goodies (battery, charger, strap, etc.). 

What could be a better start for your week than helping some Orphans?
We’re at about 25% of our donation goal, but you can get us a lot closer. Here’s the link to donate to the Springs of Hope Orphanage (built with the help of donations from people who read this blog, and who participate in the Worldwide Photo Walk each year). Thank you in advance for having a giving heart.

OK, I’m off to Minneapolis…
for my seminar there on Wednesday, then I’m heading to Milwaukee on Friday. Busy week! Thanks to everybody who visited my Exposure page about my Iceland trip – if you didn’t get by there, here’s the link.

Catch you all here on Wednesday (or in Minneapolis)!




Hi Gang, and happy Friday!

I finally I posted my images, and the story of the trip, over at (that’s the photo storytelling site I’ve been using for a few years now — it’s a wonderful way to share a trip like this).

Here’s the link

Thanks for letting me share some of my photos from the trip with you. :)

Hey, I’m in Minneapolis next Wednesday, and then Milwaukee on Friday doing my seminar – hope you can join me.




We’re only 19-days away from the big day, and so I thought I’d give you a quick briefing on where we are to date:

  • We have currently active photo walks in over 1,006 cities
  • We have another 56 photo walks in draft mode, so the leader of each is working on making it active.
  • We have approved a total of 1,356 photo walks altogether, but about 300 of those never activated their walks (so they signed up to lead a walk; got approved, but never went back and created the walk they were approved for).
  • We have over 10,730 walkers registered so far.
  • We have raised $6,502 for the Springs of Hope Orphanage via your donations on (17% of our $35,000 goal).
  • So far, our T-shirt sales have brought in approximately $3,000 for the Orphanage as well
  • Our total raised so far  (donations & t-shirt sales) is nearly $10,000 (well, give or take $448) so we’re well on our way!!! :)


New black T-shirts this year! (100% of the profits go to Springs of Hope)
Order your shirts now, so you have a chance to get yours before the walk, and you can wear it proudly at the walk.

Here’s the link to the t-shirts. 

Closing New Walk Applications
At this point, we’ve approved over 1,000 photo walks around the world, but some leaders never went and activated their walks, and we’re getting so close to the October 1st walk date, that we’re cutting off the applications for new walks, so we can all focus on getting the word out about the walks that are set-up and running.

I’m hosting the local walk in Venice, Italy…
…and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s been nine years (I think) since I’ve been there, and I can’t wait to go back and make some new images of that wonderful city. Also, I’m taking a trip up to the Dolomite Mountains which is an area I’ve wanted to visit for years. Looking forward to meeting every one there for our walk.

If you haven’t joined a photo walk yet…
It’s not too late. Check to see if there’s a walk near you –

That’s it for this quick update. :)

Hope you have a rockin’ Tuesday!
