What are you doing Saturday October 5th? Why not join me along with other photography enthusiasts as we hit the streets of downtown Belleville for a couple hours of photos and fun!
Last year I hosted my first walk for this annual event in Napanee, and had a great time. We had walkers from Ottawa and even one from overseas joined!
You can use any camera you have to take pictures with, and all skill levels are welcome. At the end of the event, walkers are encouraged to upload their favourite photo for a chance to win great prizes.
The event is free to enter, but you MUST register to participate. This will take you directly to the walk page where you can register! Belleville Ontario walk link. The walk is planned for 1:30 - 3:30, with a meet up afterwards in a local restaurant/pub that has yet to be determined.
We will meet at 1:15 to go over a few things and introduce ourselves, then work our way through the streets and alleys of the city. The walk will begin and end at the centuries old farmer's market, that will surely provide many opportunities for images!
Here are just a few examples of last year's walk photos, and below that I've attached the official press release.
So get registered and come on out for a nice afternoon!
If you have any questions, shoot me an email at email@example.com
The Official press release from Scott Kelby's Walk site has all the details.
The Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk, dubbed the world’s largest global and social photography event, has grown immensely in size and popularity since the inaugural walk in 2007. Last year, more than 24,000 photographers of all walks of life and skill level converged to explore their corners of the world through photography and social community.
The concept of a Photo Walk is simple. Photo Walks are created by Walk Leaders in cities all over the world. Walkers meet up at a pre-designated location to spend a few hours socializing, capturing images, and sharing with like-minded people. At the end of the Photo Walk, most groups convene at local restaurants or taverns to share their images and experiences over food.
In addition to the event, photo walkers will be able to upload their favorite picture to our popular Photo Walk contest for a chance to win prizes like a DSLR, gift cards, apps, and camera bags.
We will also name a Grand Prize winner and 10 finalists to be selected by Scott Kelby himself!
Every year, we encourage every photo walker to help support the initiative to “Walk with a
Purpose” by donating to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya! gofundme.com/2019-worldwide-photowalk-donations
