Q. What is a Photo Walk?
A. It’s a social photography event where photographers get together (usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town) to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers.
Q. Is there a fee to participate this year?
A. Once again it’s free there is no fee to join this year’s Photo Walk just come and have a ball!
Q. How many cities participated last year, and how many photographers did the Photo Walk that day?
A. We had over 1000 Photo Walks and over 28,000 people who participated around the world last year! That’s a HUGE leap from the 236 locations and 8,324 people we had the first year.
Q: Is there an age restriction? Are children allowed to participate?
A. While we do not have an age restriction, we thought it should be up to each walk leader to decide whether they want to allow children on their walk or not. Check with your leader to see if children will be allowed on their walk.
Q. What has been best thing that came out of this whole Worldwide Photo Walk thing?
A. I think it was the fact that so many photographers have not only made new friends, but have gone on to form their own photo walks during the year. This is totally a social event, and that’s why makes it so much fun. Most of the people on my walk had never done a Photo Walk before, but everybody had so much fun, they all wanted to do one again right away. Photo Walks are infectious, because when you get that many creative people together, who all have the love of photography in common, you can’t help but have a great time.
