Less Thank One Week To The Frisco Square Photo Walk!August 7th, 2022

Greetings Walkers!

Thank you for being a part of the Frisco Square Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk. We are less than one week away from our photo walk and I hope that you are getting as excited about it as I am. It’s been three years since I last led one of the Kelby walks, and I am definitely looking forward to this one.

The forecast for Saturday shows clear skies and very warm temperatures. Since we will be walking around outside, be sure to bring water and sunscreen with you, and a hat is probably also advisable. And of course, wear comfortable walking shoes.

I tend to be more traditional when it comes to these type of photo walks and try to capture what’s existing in the area that we will be walking around. I will typically shoot architecture and architectural details, as well as what would be considered “street photography”, or anything that happens to catch my eye. Some photo walks that I have seen or been on bring a model or two along, but that is not something I will be arranging for on this photo walk. If someone chooses to bring a model, I certainly won’t object, but I am also not asking or encouraging anyone to do that. I believe the purpose of this photo walk is to help you to expand your creativity and photograph things that you would not otherwise shoot.

Feel free to bring with whatever type of camera that you would like, regardless of whether it’s a cell phone, a point-and-shoot, a mirrorless, a DSLR, or even a film camera. If you need help with your camera, I will be happy to assist you, although I am not necessarily familiar with the menu systems on every possible camera.

The purpose of the photo walk is to walk around, shoot, and have fun. There is also a photo contest where every registered walker will get the opportunity to submit their best image, which must be taken on the day of our walk and in the area which we will be walking. I will choose the best image from the Frisco Square walk, and that photo will then be entered to compete with the winning photos from all of the other photo walks around the world. There is a separate contest for walk leaders, so you will only be competing against other walk participants.

As noted in the walk listing, we will be meeting at 9:30am in front of the George A. Purefoy Municipal Building, located just off of Frisco Square. The is plenty of free parking at the municipal building, as well as various locations around Frisco Square. Later in the week, I will be sharing my phone number if you can’t find the group or are running late. I will give an introduction to the area for those that may not be as familiar with it, including some the highlights that you may want to cover. We will take a group photo in front of the municipal building before we head off around 9:45am. You can choose to walk around on your own or stay in a small group or walk with a bigger group; the choice is entirely yours. I will be taking a very leisurely walk and I enjoy shooting with a group; the social aspect of the photo walk is just as important to me as the photography. At roughly noon, we will regroup and head to one of the restaurants around the square. I will share the list of restaurants so we can decide where to go, and a map of the area, on Saturday morning.

If you have any questions, or need to reach me for any reason before Saturday, feel free to email me at kwwpw@jbpaul.com.

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Photographically yours,
Joe Paul

    Scott Browne Really looking forward to this! I'll have my wife with me, and we're arriving in Dallas a couple of days beforehand from Australia. Could you please let me know if this walk will have any stairs, as my wife will be using an electric wheelchair.

    Joe Paul Hi Scott, or should I say G'day Mate. :) Very happy to have you on my walk. The walk will be on flat ground, and the only place that there might be some stairs would be at the municipal building where the walk will be starting. But even that would not be a problem as all new public buildings constructed after 1990 (which this one was) are required to be wheelchair accessible. We will be walking on sidewalks for the most part, and all sidewalks also have wheelchair access for ingress and egress.

    Scott Browne Thanks Joe! This is our first visit to Dallas, so can't wait!

    Joe Paul @Scott, feel free to email me at joe@joepaulstudios.com and I will be happy to share additional information about the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex or answer any additional questions you may have.

    Scott Browne Cheers - email sent :D
