I’m getting psyched!!! Here’s a few quick things stay on top of:

(1) We now have more than 1,000 photo walks organized in cities around the world
All the walks are now in place, as the deadline for creating new walks was this past weekend, so now it’s just about finding a walk near you.

(2) We have the biggest and best prizes for the photo contest ever!
Check out this link to see what our awesome sponsors have come up with.

(3) It’s not too late to join a photo walk in your city (it’s free).
Here’s the link to the official photo walk page — see if there’s one near you and join us on Saturday, October 5th for an experience you’ll never forget.

(4) Check out our Worldwide Photo Walk Webcast
Last year we did a free webcast with lots of helpful hints, suggestions, and we answered a bunch of questions people had about joining and walking, and you can watch it right here. 

(5) Order your official t-shirt right now (and help the Springs of Hope Orphanage)
We have awesome official Worldwide Photo Walk t-shirts, and not only do they look really cool (lots of folks wear them on their photo walk), but more importantly, 100% of the profits from the sale of these t-shirts  go to feeding, clothing and caring for the wonderful kids at the Spring of Hope Orphanage, Kenya. Our friend Rob Jones from Towner Jones Photography, came up with t-shirt idea and if things go well this year, we will have raised nearly $50,000 in just these six yearly walks. That rocks! Remember, even if you don’t want a shirt, you can still buy one to support the kids. Here's the link.  NOTE: We have special LEADER shirts as well (Leaders â” you'll find the link on your leader's dashboard).

OK, so that’s a quick update. I’m leading a local walk in Rome, Italy this year, and I’m hoping that some of the people that come to my walk speak some English, or we’ll just wind up going to a McDonalds. LOL!!!

Cheers everybody to a great Monday! :)

  1. The link to join a walk wasn’t added.

  2. I just got back from Rome. You will love it, there is so much to see and photograph, and the food is amazing. We never had a problem with English, almost everyone there speaks it, or understands enough of it so you can communicate!

  3. We’ll have great time, I am sure! I can speak a bit of English so I hope we’ll stay away from Mac Donalds! LOL

  4. Best part of Scott’s walks….. is after. PANCAKES !

  5. HI Scott I noticed you did not provide an itinerary yet so here is a suggestion which includes a possible afternoon stop (after lunch) for the braves :)

    I could suggest more if you wish since as yu can imagine i live in Rome ….

  6. Scott, I’m not sure how you pick the leaders for this event, but maybe the selection should be a little tighter.
    My girlfriend and I signed up for an event in Toronto, Ontario Canada over a month ago, (this will be the first for both of us and we were very excited!) Both of us are from out of town, I’m an hour outside Toronto, she is 3 hours, and taking a train in to attend. We also booked a hotel for the evening, as this was advertised as a night event.
    We both just recieved an email tonight, asking us to remove ourselves from the list, as this is strictly an event for Toronto Camera Club members???

    First of all, I was under the impression, this was a public event…. and second I think it would have been respectful to give us more than a week and a half notice before telling us to “Remove ourselves from the list”! I think if she wanted to do a strictly members only event, then Margaret should have picked another night.

    This has left a bad taste in our mouths for our first event and are unsure if we would do this again, or sign up for another walk….
