About This Walk
- Let’s meet at Market Square, downtown Knoxville. There is free parking available in the Market Square, Locust Street, Langley, and State Street parking garages. The weekly farmers market will still be running until 1pm for photo opportunities.
There are shops and restaurants all around the area, with historic building architecture. Good opportunity for some street photography in and surrounding the square, including graffiti alleys.
After the walk we will regroup again in front of Cafe 4 in case anyone misses the start time or gets separated, then go to lunch and can share our images with each other.
Please email me at email@example.com and put “2022 Photowalk” in the subject line for more info about this walk and updates.Join Walk

Ready for Saturday’s Walk?August 8th, 2022
So excited and looking forward to participate in a Photowalk again. We have ‘walked’ downtown / Market Square before, but it’s an easy walk-around for street / architecture / people-watching / action opportunities. Even if it should rain, there’s lots of places to duck into for cover, and rain pictures can be interesting with reflections. Invite friends & family, this event is not just for serious photographers or advanced equipment — especially with today’s cell phone cameras!
If you registered on the Worldwide Photowalk site before our date, you can submit your best image days there after the walk. Scott Kelby will choose and post his favorites from all submissions. There is a prize package award for the top world-wide image, and someone is going to win – maybe even one of us!
You can check out past winners online, along with suggestions for how to see or try something new on our Photowalk. There will be Facebook and Flickr albums to share your favorite photos, please don’t be shy about sharing!
We will meet near the alley arch by Cafe4 in Market Square and start out at 10 am. Please try to get there early, allowing time to park. We will finish up by meeting by Cafe4 again at noon for lunch planning. I’m going to try to make reservations for us based on how many folks register. We will take a group photo at beginning and end of Photowalk. Bring water and sunscreen if needed. I’m planning for lunch out afterwards but you could just have water and bring your own snack. It’s fun to compare notes and images on our cameras and phones.
It would be great to walk around together, but it’s my experience that folks drift off in different directions or get separated while taking pictures. Don’t worry about shooting the same scene as another person – often folks see things differently or use different settings. It’s just fun to share the enjoyment of photographing together. I’d like for everyone to have someone to walk around with, and our paths should cross often as we wander about.
Please be respectful in public, it’s a good idea to ask folks if you can take their picture. You can let them know you are documenting “people of Knoxville.” But if folks would prefer not to be, I always delete their images. I also carry photographer cards and offer to send them a copy if they like. It’s a great way to meet people.
Market Square has lots of shops and restaurants and Farmer’s Market will be open that day. There is also a Lego sponsored Brick Universe event at the Convention Center, and Old City and surrounding streets offer more possible photo scenes.
Afterwards I’ll send an email with info about dates and how to submit an image to the Worldwide Photowalk group and in our albums to share.
Here’s some optional links to help get ideas for our walk.
Quote From a past photowalk leader:
“I invite you to try something you usually don´t take photos of. It can be a bit hard to decide on such a theme because we usually tend to do things we like. If you find it hard to decide on a theme, you can ask somebody to give you ideas. For example, I usually take photos of flowers and nature related subjects. I asked for different themes and from all the suggestion I chose “Broken”. It was interesting to take photos of something different for a couple of hours, and it was a challenge for me. At first I didn’t know where to find broken things in the street or even how to frame them, but that’s the point. I needed to consider how to take a nice photo of something I don’t find appealing.”
Looking forward to seeing you there!
