About This Walk

Time for Our 10th Northport Harbor & Village Photowalk!

Hey folks, its that time of year again!  We are going to enjoy another Saturday photowalking Historic Northport!  This is a great social opportunity to meet like minded individuals that enjoy photography. Everyone is welcomed, regardless of age, skill level or what type of camera you have. The walk is also a great way to learn more about photography by trying new ideas or asking advice from fellow walkers. The point of the walk is just to meet like-minded people and have fun. Optionally there will be photo contests, with some great prizes for those interested, as well as some door prizes at out luncheon for some lucky photographers!   The walk is free but lunch is on each who attend. Remember all that’s needed is a smile & a camera!

Parking

Parking is available at the intersection of Main & Woodbine. There are 2 lots although part of one will be used to set up the Farmers Market. There is also parking right on Main Street as well as 2 lots across from our meeting point off Woodbine. My cell is 516-884-9480 for those they may need to reach out for whatever reasons and my email is richichi@optonline.net.

Starting Location

We will meet under the Gazebo in Cow Harbor Park which is close to the waters edge. There is another larger Gazebo in Northport Park (just across the way) but that is NOT our meeting spot. Check my map for specific location if necessary.

The Route

Each year I publish a custom map showing the planned route, if you decide to follow it or shorten it, it is totally up to each photographer. You are welcome to print the map or just keep the link on your cell phone.  Our walk will start at 10 am at the Northport Farmers Market, in the Cow Meadow parking lot, which makes for a great photos with the various vendors & their wares – some great colors! We will then move down to Northport Harbor with some fantastic water views. Add to that their docks, boats & visitors and you will have plenty to photograph. Then thru Northport Park and over to a few of the local homes who have graciously given us access to their waterfront properties. Lastly we’ll tour through historic Northport Village, past their shops, churches, and restaurants.

Ending Location

The walk will end at the corner of Main & Woodbine at 12:15. I hope that many will attend the luncheon @ 12:30 for some great food & conversation. Tim’s Shipwreck Diner (https://shipwreckdiner.com/) has always taken great care of us over the past 7 years. The food is great and reasonably priced and their outdoor facility fits our needs so well. This is a great time to socialize, show off your phots and get to know each other better.

What to Wear & Bring

Although you may have your preferences for a Photowalk, here are some suggestions:

  • Wear good quality, closed-toe walking shoes.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing, appropriate for the weather.
  • Tripods are allowed but aren’t necessary
  • Bring at least one camera (any type of device that captures and records light is perfect, point-and-shoot and camera phones included!)
  • Bring only the lenses you plan to use based on your interest.  Not a good idea to bring your entire kit on a long Photowalk.  I bring one medium zoom lens for most situations.
  • Rain gear for yourself and your camera should be readily available as we have learned over the last several years.

Other Stuff

Note this is a “rain or shine” event!  So prepare accordingly and you will be amazed of the images during inclimate weather. So if it sprinkles or there is a massive thunderstorm, come anyway. We will only cancel if the mayor says evacuate the town

About Your Walk Leader

Hi!  I’m Ron – I’ve been the organizer for Northport Photowalks for 7 years.  Since 2008, I’ve lead Photowalks, Last year I missed the walk due to health reasons, but I had a buddy run it for me. In 2017 & 18 I even ran a monthly portrait club.  I started shooting with a Nikon Nikkormat EL in the 70’s as a hobby and stayed with it in one shape or form ever since. I have been a dedicated life-long Nikon guy.

In my day job I am now retired and taking it easy (doctor’s orders) My family is of utmost importance to me and I spend whatever time I can with them or on the golf course or fishing pier these days – but photography is in my bones.
