Scott Kelby’s 4th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk 2011 Announced

A photo walk is a free event where photographers, be they pros or an amateur, meet up at a place and walk around a pre-determined area capturing the streets and things around. It lasts not more than two hours depending on the area. Photo walks are a perfect start for beginners  as they can get to interact with professional photographers and learn new things for better photography. It is basically called ‘Knowledge Transfer’ (KT).

There are several groups on Flickr that organize photo walks. Each of these groups is based in different cities in the world, and focus on different places and themes. Photo walks are organized every week or every month or even every year. Photographers collaborate with each other in their respective groups and decide on an area to walk. At times photographers choose a place that is thousands of miles away from their homes.

Usually photo walks happen during early hours of the day, and at the end of the event, all photographers go for a Dutch treat for refreshments. This particular time is for KT. Photographers mingle with each other, exchange photography tips, share recommendations and so on. Once the event is over, the photos captured can be uploaded and added to the photo walk group on Flickr or shared using other networking  platforms  like Facebook and Tumblr.

One such event is the worldwide photo walk, organized by the renowned photographer Scott Kelby. It takes place on a specific time every year. Every city that is registered will have an organizer who has to organize a photo walk on the specified dates. The event is open to public in general regardless of age, sex, professional or beginner, phone camera or DSLR camera, level of knowledge in photography or whatever. It just requires you, your camera and your creativity.
