About This Walk

Your walk leader is Jim Pearson, President of the West Kentucky Photography Club located in Madisonville, Ky. Jim was a photojournalist in the USAF for 24 years,  as a member of Combat Camera and has photographed in over 66 countries on assignment. Upon retirement from the Air Force he moved back to his hometown of Madisonville, Ky where went to work for The Messenger Newspaper there. After 17 years working as a photojournalist for The Messenger he retired again in 2014 and now devotes his photography to the kids in his family and that of photographing trains.

We will meet at the gazebo on the corner of Broadway and 2nd Street next to the parking lot.  The walk route will go up Broadway from there away from the riverfront to 9th Street, left on 9th Street to Washington Street, turn left, back down to the waterfront, left again and return to the starting point. Of course everyone is free to wander off this path to look for photos as long as you stay within the downtown area.

After the walk those that would like to meet up for dinner at 6:30pm, we’re going to meet at:

  • Shandies American Restaurant

  • 202 Broadway St, Paducah, KY 42001 – Cross Streets: Between S 2nd St and N 2nd St/Market House Sq

Photowalk Judging UpdateOctober 16th, 2017

Well folks, sorry if your photo didn’t make it into the judging. The response from support is that if the judging has taken place there’s nothing they can do so the results are final! Congratulations to the Winner!!! (I can’t see the name of who shot the photos)

Contest JudgingOctober 16th, 2017

I just found out after I did the Judging that there was someone who submitted their photo last week whose photo wasn’t in the judging area. There were only two entries in the contest. If you uploaded your contest entry before the deadline and it isn’t showing up as being in the contest please let me know via email: jim@jimpearsonphotography.com . I’ve sent a message to the Photowalk Support team to see what I’m supposed to do now that I picked a winner from the two entries.

Invite your friends!October 5th, 2017

We have quite a few spaces left for our photowalk this Saturday! Please invite your friends to join us!

  • Vincent Busclas This is just over a week away, wondering if there had been any updates on anything, where we were meeting for dinner or what?

  • Jim Pearson Does anyone have a suggestion on where to meet after the walk for dinner? Also, we're only a few days away on only 7 walkers! Come on folks! Share this walk and help us have a better turnout!

    • Kerry Davis What about Shandies? https://local.yahoo.com/info-95184186-shandies-paducah

  • Jim Pearson Do you know if we can just show up or are reservations required?

    • Kerry D Its a pretty big place. I doubt we'd need reservations for such a small group but you might want to give them a call just to be sure. My family are there a few months ago & the food & service was excellent! I don't know much about Paducah so that's the only place I can think of. I heard there is now a Mellow Mushroom & have heard great things about that restaurant from different locations.

      • Lisa Cox Mellow Mushroom is great but it's not in the area that we're walking and usually packed on Saturdays.
