About This Walk
Saturday, October 7th, 2023, is World Wide Photo Walk Day! There are photographers participating in walks all over the world, all on the SAME DAY!
The Worldwide Photo Walk supports The Springs Of Hope Kenya Orphanage, an organization that feeds, houses, educates and empowers young orphans.
My name is Leslie Chester, I am a professional photographer. I own and operate Firafly Photography here in Bullhead City. I picked up my first SLR camera in 1995, my grandfather’s Olympus OM10, at 19 years old, and haven’t been without a camera since.
I have lead a few other walks in the area, this is one I have wanted to lead for awhile. I am mainly leading this walk to give others the opportunity to participate in the Worldwide Photowalk Day and contest.
Our walk will take place throughout the Colorado River Nature Center in Bullhead City. There will be guided walk from approximately 7:15am-9am.
After 9am it will be a self-guided walk. I am leaving the walk open until noon on Saturday. I know there may be a lot that can not make it out early and this gives you more of a chance to participate.

The North West skyline is a bit obstructed with the building of the new bridge but, it could be a cool photo opportunity. It’s all how you see it.
I will be there to answer questions. Thank you for registering. I registered to be a leader because, I really wanted our community represented during this walk.
I recently did something to my foot so, I may not walk the whole way with you.
