About This Walk

By popular request the walk returns to Virginia City. The walk will take us around the city, with both interior and exterior shooting locations possible. Still locking down some interiors to photograph. While the walk ends at 6:30, a quick night shoot may happen depending on conditions.

Please monitor the weather and dress for fall in the Comstock.

Tomorrow is the Walk!October 7th, 2017

Hello everyone. I just wanted to thank you in advance for coming to this years World Wide Photo Walk, held in Virginia City this year.

I wanted to share a few things with you to help you better enjoy tomorrow.
Gear you should bring:
1. Camera, memory cards and batteries. Wide angle lenses are a must, but a portrait lens would be be great too as we have a group of cowboys and gunfighters walking along with us. Those that came to the walk last you can vouch for how much fun this group brings to the walk.
2. Tripod, if you think you need to stabilize the camera. We will go do to the Catholic Church after the walk to shoot a few night shots, not part of the walk, but if you want to join, you will need a tripod for at least that.
3. Warm clothing. While tomorrow will the warmest day of the month, it can get cold in Virginia City as the sun goes down, so make sure to dress in layers.
4. Water, snack and shoes. We will be doing a ton of walking, so good shoes, water and something to snack on are all good ideas.
5. We just got confirmation about a tour of Piper’s Opera House, so if you think you need a flash or speedlight, please bring it.
6. Last item, the Outhouse races are going on till 4PM, so parking may be an issue. I recommend car pooling with friends if possible and getting there early to find a good place to park. If you arrive late, we will be starting inside Pipers Opera House and should be there for at least 45 minutes to an hour.
