About This Walk


Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photowalk (WWPW) is happening on October 7, 2023.  This is the 15th WWPW (2021 was moved to 2022 because of Covid).



Kemah Boardwalk is known for it’s daytime activity and great night photography opportunities, but it’s also a great place to photograph the sunrise. The sun rises over the water when you shoot East off the boardwalk.

Additionally, some of the restaurants and rides are lit up in the pre-dawn hours – which also makes for some high quality HDR opportunities.

The early morning boat activity creates some nice opportunities as well. The rest of the boardwalk and the surrounding area is good fodder for morning light.

Dawn is at 6:52 am and Sunrise is at 7:16am.

Parking available in front of the Bullet (rollercoaster) and just past Starbucks in front of Saltgrass. If for some reason that parking is all full there is street parking avail on Bradford Ave between 4th and 5th Streets.

FYI – Starbucks on Kemah Boardwalk normally opens at 7am

Gear Tips

Because of potential humidity, your gear can easily fog up if you don’t plan ahead. You need to make sure that your camera, lenses etc. are up to to the outside temperature and humidity long before arriving. Turn your auto A/C off at least a half hour before arriving and roll your windows down.

Bring a tripod, perhaps a good ND filter, perhaps a superwide prime or zoom lens.

  1. For all those that are signed up, the weather for tomorrow morning’s Photowalk shows partly cloudy, which should make for some good sunrise shots. Bring your tripod/platypod!
