Photography is a language that is understood everywhere in the world. If you're into photography then you really should consider being involved in this world wide event. It's a global photography social event and it's happening on Saturday 11th October.
I have mentioned that joining is free, but you can "Walk With A Purpose" and donate just $1 and help the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. The aim is to raise $50,000 to make a difference to the orphans by helping to feed, clothe and house them.
But hang on a minute... what is a photo walk?
According to Scott Kelby; "A photo walk is a social photography event where photographers get together in any public area to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers."
These are some of the fantastic prizes that can be won: A photo is selected as the winner from each Photo Walk and will win a full year membership to Kelby One (valued at $249). Those winning photos are then submitted into the pool of Walk winners from around the world. From those, 10 photos are selected as finalists and go into the running to win thousands of dollars worth of prizes, including a Canon EOS 70D with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, Canon PIXMA PRO-1 printer, Adobe Creative Cloud membership, Wacom Intuos tablet, Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD lens valued at $849, ThinkTank camera bags, photo gift cards and much more.
There's also a People's Choice award too, valued at over $5000.
If you have a Flickr page, then be sure to join the WWPW 2014 Flickr group and share your photos with all the others from around the world.
A photo walk is a great way to catch up with your photography friends and to make new ones too. Whatever type of camera you have - whether it's pro or beginner, whether it's a DSLR or a point and shoot, everyone is welcome to take part and enjoy the experience.
Some tips for enjoying the day:
Firstly - join up, charge your batteries and go. You won't regret it.
Introduce yourself to the others in the group - photo walks are a great way to make new friends.
Stay afterwards for a coffee and catch up. Talk about the event and share your pics. It's a great environment for relaxing and getting to know your fellow photo walkers.
Take lots of photos, ask lots of questions and have a heap of fun.
