Take part in the largest social photography event in the world.
Join the Lerwick leg led by Ben Mullay, Saturday 27th September, 2-4pm.
I would like to invite you to the Shetland leg of the Worldwide Photo Walk which is taking place in Lerwick on Saturday 27th September where the route will be focusing on the lanes of Lerwick. This year I am very excited to have teamed up with James Tait of Island Trails who will be helping to plan the route and give some historical insight of the areas we’ll be photographing.
Read on for further information!
For those of you who have not been on my photo walks before, the Worldwide Photo Walk is a social gathering of local photographers in the area who walk around for around two hours taking pictures and talking all things photography! This is the fifth photo walk I have organised in Shetland and all have been great fun.
What I’ve found is because the two hours are dedicated to just photography and you’re socialising with like-minded people, you can pick up lots of new tips and tricks in a short space of time. I’ll be on hand to answer any questions and try to give my best advice!
Take the fun up a notch by entering the worldwide photo walk competition. My favourite photo from the walk will win a prize with that image going forward to be in contention of winning the grand prize.
The walk will start and finish at the Camera Centre and run from 2pm-4pm. For a creative, different way to spend your Saturday afternoon, click here to sign up. Looking forward to seeing you there.
Q: When will the walk take place?
A: The walk will take place on Saturday 27th September from 2pm-4pm whatever the weather!
Q: Where does the walk start and end
Q: How much does it cost?
A: The photography event is FREE and open to all ages, abilities and types of cameras. The main objective of the event is to enjoy taking some photos and maybe learn a few tips and tricks along the way. I shall be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Once again this year there are some really cool t-shirts for walkers where 100% of the profits will go directly to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. To order your shirt click here.
Q: What do I need to bring?
A: First of all, I’d like to say that any camera or indeed mobile phone is suitable for this walk. You’ll have the opportunity to capture interesting images regardless of the quality or expense of your photographic equipment. All abilities levels are more than welcome to attend. Please also make sure you dress suitably for the changeable Shetland weather. Besides that, please do bring a friend but make sure everyone has signed up for the walk in advance – you need to do this in order to share any images and be in contention for prizes!
Q: What is the Worldwide Photo Walk?
A: The Worldwide Photo Walk is the world’s largest global social photography event in the history of photography itself where photographers of all walks of life and skill levels gather together, usually in downtown areas to socialise, learn new tips from each other, and explore their corner of the world through photography.
In addition to enjoying a day of photography with other like-minded individuals, participants may also be eligible to win prizes from the Worldwide Photo Walk’s sponsors if their photo is chosen as the best photo of the day by walk leader Ben Mullay.
Each winning walk photo is then entered into a global competition where Scott Kelby picks the single “best photo” of the event along with 10 runners-up. Full details are available at: http://worldwidephotowalk.com.
