Where The Walk Will End

Courtyard at Claremont Village Square

About This Walk

Welcome to the fun, FREE, World Wide Photo Walk in Historic Downtown Claremont.

This is the fifth year I will be the photowalk leader in this wonderful City!

My name is Kevin Toohey. I am an experienced, professional photographer & instructor leading this scenic walk!  I specialize in teaching private lessons & very small group photography classes.

Everyone with ANY type of camera is invited, so be sure to tell your friends!  It is available for photo enthusiasts of all skill levels and experience.

We are starting early to get that great morning light.

We’ll meet at the Metrolink parking lot where there are plenty of free, convenient parking spaces available. You can also take the train in!

We will take a short walk to the Claremont Depot Train Station (for our group photo) and then through the “Village” in order to capture unique architectural & street shots. The walk will continue in and around the downtown Claremont area where we will have the opportunity to photograph the older homes, college buildings, beautiful macro shots (flowers!) & scenery along the way.

Our morning will wrap up with an early lunch (or snack) at the courtyard behind the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (Multiple restaurants & fast food type locations to choose from and/or bring a sack lunch / snacks).

I hope you will plan on staying at least an hour after the walk to share your images, socialize, and enjoy a refreshment and/or casual dining experience.

Note: We will be walking for over two and a half hours, so I’d recommend you bring bottled water, sunscreen, wear layered clothing & comfortable shoes! The complete walk “loop” is less than two miles…but, contact me if you’d like to have a shorter route.

I also encourage you to FULLY charge the camera battery & only bring the photo accessories you will need (it can be uncomfortable carrying heavy equipment).

Important note about meeting location: The address listed is not the exact meeting location, as the parking lot doesn’t have an official address. Please view map and park in the South-Eastern corner of 1st Street & College Ave.

You are also encouraged to submit pictures from the day to share with other photo walkers.
NOTE: Information will be sent to all attendees after the walk
Also, be sure to choose your favorite image to enter the photo contest:

Winner ChosenOctober 17th, 2018

After taking a long time to decide… I chose the winner of this years Claremont’s WWPW. Thank you for all who submitted. (All the photos entered were excellent).
I don’t know how or if you will be notified…in years past, the WWPW website posted the winner on the Claremont page.

Thanks again. Happy Shooting.

Reminder + a few new thingsOctober 15th, 2018

Hi Photographers!
You have until 9pm PST tonight to submit your contest photo.
I’d recommend if you haven’t already, that you do it soon because if you have any problems I probably won’t be available to help after 3pm or so.
The email you received from the WWPW gives you directions.
I will choose the winner by Wednesday night.
(I’m not sure how the notification process will work this year, so I’d recommend you log back into the Claremont Photowalk page as I’m guessing the winning photo will be displayed there.

The one winning photo will be reviewed by WWPW and winners will then be chosen.

Keep in mind that unless you contact me by phone, text or direct email, I don’t have any way of getting in touch with you.
Also, most likely in a week or so the site will stop allowing me to send these updates.

I hope you enjoyed the group photo…
Keep in touch and good luck on the contest.


Photo Contest, Gallery for posting your photos & more!October 11th, 2018

It was fun meeting all of you at the Claremont photowalk last Saturday.
Be sure to read the email you received from WWPW2018 to submit your one favorite photo for the contest.

I have created a Flickr gallery where you can post up to 12 of your favorite photos (you can also comment on others photos, etc…) You can’t post photos until you “join” the group:
I have already posted the group photo there.
I also hope you’ll visit the older galleries from past years.

If you have a Facebook profile be sure to “LIKE” (You’ll find the group photo under the Claremont event as well)

Finally, if you have any questions about the small group, hands-on classes I offer or private lessons, contact me by phone or email anytime.

I look forward to viewing your photos! Thanks again,
Kevin Toohey
