About This Walk

Welcome to the 10th Anniversary of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk 2017 taking place this year in beautiful Durham City which is packed with photo opportunities.  The 2 hour walk will be officially opened by the Mayor and Mayoress of Durham, starting with a group shot on the Town Hall steps in the Market Place to photograph some of Durham’s iconic views of the Cathedral, Castle and beautiful riverside.  Following the walk, we will meet for a social get-together on the Prince Bishop River Cruise, a great opportunity to relax and socialise with your fellow walkers and grab a few shots from a different perspective.  This will be my third Scott Kelby WWPW and my first as walk leader which I believe to be the first WWPW in our great city.

I am a member of Durham Photographic Society, former Chairman of Wokingham and East Berkshire Camera Club & Photo Competition Judge for the Southern Federation of Camera Clubs, Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society and former Wedding Photographer in Chicago, Illinois.

What gear to take?September 19th, 2017

Hi folks!
There could be up to 50 people in our group and on a busy Saturday morning so I wouldn’t suggest bringing a tripod. I’ll be using my Canon camera with just one lens, a 24-70mm which is great for this type of event. Check out some gear tips from my friend Rick Sammon here: http://worldwidephotowalk.com/get-ready-to-walk/
All the best, Tony

Durham City WWPW update informationSeptember 14th, 2017

Hi folks! Thank you for registering for the Durham City WWPW which is now just over 3 weeks away. We will be meeting for a group shot at the Town Hall Steps in the Marketplace and our walk will be officially opened by the Mayor and Mayoress of Durham. I’m still working on a finalised route for the walk and to give us a better chance of getting images we will finish at 12:00 noon instead of 11:30am originally planned. I’m delighted to announce that afterwards we will be having a social get-together on the Prince Bishop River Cruise from 12:30 to 13:30, an opportunity to enjoy a drink, socialise and relax with new friends with a chance to grab a few images from a different perspective. All the best, Tony

  • Tony Mearman Hello everyone Many thanks for signing up for the Durham WWPW and just to update you, I'm actively working to make it a huge success for everyone involved. I've done a couple of 'recces' to identify the best photo locations in and around the City and will share these with everyone in due course. I'm hoping to get the Mayor of Durham to welcome participants and to formall declare the walk open. You are invited to join us for a lunch afterwards and I'm hoping to book a special venue where we all can have a meet-up to share our experiences. There are lots of prizes for the best photos from around the world and you will have the opportunity to submit yours to the website after our walk. Durham has so many interesting sights, hopefully we can come up with some winners from our group! I'll keep you all posted on developments, let me know if you have a special favourite photo viewpoint you'd like to share with us. All the best, Tony

  • Tony Mearman Hi folks! I've just returned from a week's holiday and with less than 4 weeks to go, will be ramping up preparations for our walk during the coming week and I'll keep you all posted on what's happening. Thank you for registering for the Durham WWPW, I look forward to meeting everyone on the day. All the best, Tony
