Scott Kelby’s 2nd Annual Worldwide Photowalk!
That’s right, everyone! Friend-of-the-Blog Scott Kelby is announcing today the launch of his 2nd Annual Worldwide Photowalk which will be on Saturday July 18, 2009 in a city near you (hopefully)!
Once again, I have been asked to lead one of the walks and we’ve selected the beautiful village of Cazenovia, NY as the site of this year’s walk. It’s a beautiful little college town on the southern end of Cazenovia Lake in the heart of Central New York. For more details about the village, check out the Cazenovia website or the Cazenovia College website. I don’t have a route laid out quite yet but it’s a small enough place that once we have a starting place we will be able to cover most of the village in a couple of hours.
If you’ve never been on a photowalk or don’t know what one is, basicially, it’s a social gathering of photographers who meet at a given time and place to explore and shoot for a couple of hours. At the end we meet at a local restaurant/bar to eat, mingle, and review our captures from the day (I’m thinking of the Brae Loch Inn at this point, but I’m open to suggestions if anyone knows of another good place).
We will then upload all of our shots to the photowalk website and I will select the best photo of the day to win a copy of Scott’s new book The Digital Photography Book: Volume 3 which will then be eligible for a HUGE prize package for the best shot of the day from all the photowalks around the world – which includes the entire Creative Sute, a Wacom Tablet, 2 Tickets to Photoshop World and much more!
Last summer there were over 8,000 photowalkers in 230 cities worldwide and we’re hoping to shatter that number this year. So sign up and join the crowds of photographers that will be out shooting this July 18th!
If you’re looking for another photowalk in your area, take a look over on the Worldwide Photowalk website for the growing list of participating cities around the world. If you don’t see one near you, lead one! The process is easy and you’ll be glad you did it!
For those of you in CNY, or willing to travel here, signup for the Cazenovia photowalk and be sure to help spread the word and invite your friends, your local camera club, or anyone you run into on the street! The group size is limited to 50 people, so don’t wait to signup!
More details to come!
