Where We Will Meet

Where The Walk Will End

About This Walk

This will be a nature hunt to search out interesting imagery.  Unlike many photo safaris, there will not be any obvious photographic landscape vistas.  This means we will have to dig a little deeper than those in other cities to find the hidden beauty.  We’ll be walking through a few short park trails but there are not any tough hills so any age can participate.  There are prizes for photo/video winners, plus, there is a separate prize category for photographers 16 and under.

I’d like this experience to be mostly fun.   This is an opportunity to start seeing things in a more creative way plus enjoy sharing each other’s ideas.  As the leader of this Photowalk and  Master Photographer for the past 28 years (www.AlexGinsburgPhotographics.com), I also teach basic photography, so I’ll be there to help if you get stuck technically.  Perhaps you’ll create the next William Eggleston (www.egglestontrust.com) masterpiece, but, if not, who cares…as long as you enjoy the experience. Right?

Wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes.  A little bug spray wouldn’t hurt.

I’ve started very very late to plan this Photowalk on Saturday, October 7th..  My apologies.  Please tell your friends ASAP so we can have a nice crowd but there is a limit of 50 participants.  Your participation is FREE.  However, we would like to raise the awareness of Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya and maybe collect a few dollars from any donation you’d like to share.

 

CONTEST SUBMISSION DATE CHANGEOctober 12th, 2017

Dear Walkers,
I just found out that there will be a date change to your photo submission. You know have until OCTOBER 15th since they now are not giving the leaders access to view until the 16th. I don’t think this effected you as much as me since the original deadlines stated that we leaders had to have decisions completed by the 15th.
It was great to meet you all. Keep in touch.
Alex

Thank you & Submitting your entryOctober 7th, 2017

Hope you had fun today. Thank you for your participation. I’m sure you will get some emails from Kelby One, sponsors of the Photowalk, about how to enter your image(s) and supporting the sponsors. Lastly, they will be asking you for donations which I encourage all of you to give whatever feels right to you.
The information below is what was sent to me to help you submit images. I’m sending these to you now in case you would like to submit soon.
There were some of you who were still struggling with some basic photography skills. I would like to help with you grasping those basic concepts. Perhaps we can get together and run through those concepts or find alternative ways for you to learn some basic skills. Please email me if you have that interest. (alex@AlexGinsburgPhotographics.com)

Thank you for allowing me to be your leader. I’m sorry Big Foot did not show. I guess he got a better gig.

Photowalk UpdatesOctober 4th, 2017

Hi there!
–Please try to be on time this Saturday since I’d like to keep on schedule to be respectful of everyone’s other plans for Saturday.
–Our walk will be about 2.25 miles and will take every bit of our 2 hours planned since we’ll be needing time for photography. Wear your walking shoes. You might want to plan your day a little loose in case we take a little more than the two hours we’ve planned. There might be some hanging out time when back at the studio.
–Okay, this one you were not expecting. …If you care to wear some interesting casual clothing that might be suitable for a portrait, it’s possible that your fellow photographers might enjoy using you for a model for some of their shots. Accessories can be fun….hats, scarves, etc.
–There are still spaces if you would like to have a friend join you, however, I’m making it obligatory that you make a new friend on Saturday. 🙂
–There are a few video’s that were made available that you might want to view for information and fun.
–Reminder: My studio is located at 7707 Poplar Pike (NOT Poplar) 2 doors from Germantown High School and next to Franklin Park (Germantown Charity Horse Show). The studio looks residential so our sign is a bit hard to see behind the black wrought iron fence. There will be parking in the back.

  • Alex Ginsburg Photographics Hi folks. Alex Ginsburg, your Photowalk leader, here to say I'm looking forward to next weeks walk. As a professional, I find that I don't get out much with my camera just for fun. I'm not sure about you, but I'm looking forward to having fun with you. I'll certainly be contacting you again next week but I just wanted to say that we have a very nice group of people coming so far but certainly we still have room for more. Please share the Photowalk with friends and family since it should be a fun morning.

  • Shon Driscoll Hi Alex, Rain is in the forecast. Do you think things will go as scheduled should it be raining?

  • Alex Ginsburg Photographics I have not heard anything from the organization as to what to do about bad weather. I'm praying that foul weather will come in the afternoon instead of the morning. I could say that there are pretty images that can be created in the rain but I realize the electronic equipment does not love humidity. At this point, I am still planning on meeting as scheduled and if it is really storming, the crowd can decide the best action. (i.e. continue in rain, postpone an hour or two, cancel, etc.) . Let's add an extra prayer tonight.
