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,



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):

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 here.




Hey, whattayadoing this weekend? Want to join around 20,000+ photographers around the world having fun, making friends, and taking millions of pictures?

We’re just 5 days (it’s this Saturday) so come join in at the official site – it’s free, you’ve got a chance at some amazing prizes, and you’ll just have a ton of fun.

I’m off to Australia to lead a local walk in Sydney – my first time ever in Australia, and I’m really excited. I’ll be posting images to my Instagram account – I hope you’ll follow me there.

See you tomorrow for a Photo Walk update! :)


P.S. If you’re signed up for the walk, make sure you check your email for an email from me with more tips on how to get awesome images on your walk (it’s the 5th in my series created just for photo walkers). 

This is getting exciting! Here’s a quick update one week (and a day) out:

(1) We now have nearly 1,000 photo walks organized around the world
All the walks are now in place, as the deadline for creating new walks has passed, so now it’s just about finding a walk near you (and can you help us spread the word to your photography friends?). Here’s the link to the official photo walk page — see if there’s a walk near you and join us on Saturday, October 3rd for an experience you’ll never forget. [the photo above is from my Rome walk two years ago].

(2) We have awesome prizes for the optional photo contest portion!
Check out this link to see what all the prizes, but the grand prize winner picks up a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, a Canon Pixma Pro 1 Printer, a 1-year Adobe Creative Cloud Membership, a Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet, and much more! 10 Finalists will get awesome prizes, too!


We are now just 11-days away from my 8th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk™. We’re getting close to 950 photo walks already organized in cities all over the world, which is awesome. We’ll have a lot of fun, we’ll make lots of great pictures, and we’ll make a lot of new friends in the process. This is all great, but we’re also trying to do something much more meaningful.

You’ve heard of talking about “Walking with a Purpose” and we say that because we’re using this worldwide event to raise money for the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. They need our help in a big way each year, and we can really make a difference by helping us all hit our goal of raising $50,000.

Here’s how:

(1) We are encouraging each walker to find it in their heart to donate just $1 to the Orphanage. You can do this when you sign up for your walk, or you can give a gift directly, as so many thoughtful, generous, and just awesome folks already have. Here’s the link to donate whatever amount you’d like ($1 is fine, but if you’ve been blessed and can share you, that is a double-blessing).


(2) Buy one of our official 2015 Worldwide Photo Walk T-shirts (seen above) as 100% of the profits from these t-shirt sales go directly to the Orphanage in Kenya.  Last year (with our friend Rob Jones help). We raised over $7,000 to feed and cloth the children, and this year we’re hoping, with your help, to hit $10,000 just from t-shirt sales alone. Here’s a link to order yours today (better order to day to get yours in time for the walk.

Together, with the $1 donation for walkers all over the world, and the profits from the t-shirt sales, we’re trying to raise $50,000 to help them feed, clothe and house some wonderful children. Note: Last year we raised more than $37,000 and that made a dramatic difference (and it was three-times the amount we ever raised before!)

Remember: 100% of your $1 goes directly to the orphanage (it’s a very small orphanage, housing 33 kids, but feeding many more each day). You have no idea what a difference your dollar will make (and it would mean a lot to me that you’re helping.

This year, we walk with a purpose, on Saturday, October 3rd all over the world. Hope you can join us. :)

Here’s a link with more details — just 11-days to go!



P.S. If you’re a company and you’d like to make a corporate donation, we would absolutely, positively love you for it and we’ll spread the word! (plus, we’ll  make sure you have everything in place for your tax deduction). Contact us directly at 1-800-738-8513. 

Just a quick update on my “8th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk:” 

(1) We now have Photo Walk organized in 280 cities around the world (and we just officially launched a few days ago!).

(2) Check out some of these awesome cities that just added walks:

  • Egucigalpa, Honduras
  • Clinton, Tennessee
  • San Antonio, Columbia
  • Elora, Ontario, Canada
  • Tyler, Texas
  • Marikina, Philippines
  • Tooele, Utah
  • Meridian Charter Township, Michigan
  • Cairo, Egypt
  • Ogunquit, Maine
  • Manila, Philippines
  • Bangkok, Thailand
  • Kuala Lumpur
  • Karmiel, Israel
  • Paris, France
  • Canon City, Colorado
  • Sydney, Australia

How cool is that! More cities are being added daily.

(3) We are preparing a media kit that will probably go out today to help walk leaders publicize their walks, so keep an eye out for that in your email if you’re a Walk Leader.

(4) I just recorded six videos with camera tips, composition tips, gear tips, and a whole bunch more to help you get the most of your upcoming Photo Walk. You’ll get a link to those in a “Walk wide” email newsletter we’ll be sending out each week leading up to the Walk, so keep an eye out for it (the sender will be KelbyOne, that’s our online educational community).

(5) Have your ordered your “Official Photo Walk T-shirt?” Lot of folks wear these on the walks themselves, and so we see them everywhere. Why do so  many people buy the t-shirts? Well, beside looking really cool, and being a souvenir from a really fun and memorable day, 100% of the profits go to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya (and who doesn’t want to help Orphans, right?). Here’s a link to order yours today.

(6) Is there a walk in a city near you? There’s only one way to find out. Go to the official site; click the “Find a Walk” button and search for your city. If there’s not one there, maybe you could lead one? You get a cool prize, and loves of love and affection for leading a way. Click the “Apply to Lead a Walk” button at the same link.

(7) There really isn’t a #7, but just having 6 sounded kinda cheesy. Hope you all have an awesome Tuesday. Don’t forget to spread the word about the walk to your friends, photo groups, online groups, group groups, Groupon, Groovy groups, Gravy groups, etc.



P.S. Here’s the link to sign up for a walk (it’s free). I know I already posted it somewhere in all that stuff, but I wanted to make it easy to find. Feel the love.
