Worldwide Photo Walk

July 18 is the date of the Second Annual Worldwide Photowalk. The Photowalk is sponsored by Scott Kelby (for anyone who hasn't heard of him, he prolific author of books on Photoshop and photography, founder of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals and Kelby Training, and editor of Photoshop User magazine) and as of today there are 755 walks scheduled with over 10,000 people registered. When I checked the offical website last week, the only walk on Long Island was in Greenport, so I submitted an application to lead a walk in Northport. I was accepted, so the walk is on. All I need now is photo walkers!

For those of you who are wondering what the heck a photo walk is, the official defiinition is:
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.
Each PhotoWalk is limited to 50 participants, and there will be a website for uploading and sharing photos — with a prize given to the best photograph taken on each walk. There are also corporate sponsors and other prizes!

To find out about, and/or sign-up for the Northport walk, go to If you want me to sign you up, send me an email and I'll add you to the list! The official PhotoWalk website, has lots of information. Be sure to check it out.

That's all for now, Linda
