About This Walk
After leading 4 previous neighborhood PhotoWalks, this time we’re covering the ENTIRE city in one day. The day starts at The Photo Outfitters for coffee and a meet & greet with your fellow PhotoWalkers, then team up and head out to document our great city. The location is up to you – North End, South End, Uptown, the Rail Trail, Lake Norman – wherever your creative powers take you that will best capture YOUR vision of Charlotte. The walk is a great opportunity to meet other photographers from around the area, make new friends and (maybe) expand your horizons.
All are welcome to meet up at The Photo Outfitters for coffee and donuts at 8am before a day of shooting. Feel free to shoot as long as you like, then we will meet back at 6pm at The Photo Outfitters for food, prizes, image sharing and socializing with our creative community. Film photographers will have the opportunity to have your film developed after the walk is completed.
Digital – film – mobile – all photographers are welcome and we’re excited to see you!
It’s Time to Walk – Are you Ready?October 6th, 2023
Charlotte Photo Walkers:
We’re excited for tomorrow to kick off and hope you are, too. Cannon and I have a fun day planned as we join over FIVE THOUSAND walkers across the globe.
Saturday is going to be great. Here’s the plan for the day:
8-9 am Meet your PhotoWalk team at The Photo Outfitters. We have coffee and doughnuts for you and an opportunity to meet the rest of the crew. We’ll take a team photo at 9 and then the PhotoWalk starts.
9-? Shoot wherever, whenever, for as long as you like.
At 9:30 Tony will lead a Walk starting at the fountain in Romare Bearden Park for those who want to shoot Uptown Charlotte.
At 3:30, Cannon will lead the Plaza Midwood Walk.
6pm We want everyone to meet back at The Photo Outfitters by 6pm for a post-Walk party with dinner, image sharing, and storytelling.
Btw it’s our 1st birthday – but you get the presents. We have doorprizes (and cake!) at the after party.
Thank you all for participating in Scott Kelby’s Worldwide PhotoWalk 2023 – we’ll see you soon!
