Saturday and Sunday, the 1st and 2nd October, saw thousands of photographers all around the World taking part in what has become a history making event: Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk

And what an incredible weekend it was!!! I had the absolute pleasure of organising and leading one of the UK legs, in the beautiful City of Oxford and was joined by a great bunch of folks who’d travelled far and wide…some as far as Florida and Texas in the USA; admittedly they were here visiting family and friends but how cool is that 🙂

This was the 4th Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk, this time seeing over 1117 walks going on around the world and an excess of 30,000 photographers of varying levels taking part; Photography Professionals all the way to folks who like to take the occasional photo with their mobile phones…

Having fun and making friends with like minded people really is what the World Wide Photo Walk is all about, and taking photos and the chance to win thousands of pounds worth of prizes is an added bonus, and I know I’m not alone when I say this but I’ve met people by doing these walks over the past 4 years that have now become some of my greatest friends…

It’s incredible how fast the 2 hour walk went by; so fast I only managed to take a few shots the entire time in-between all the walking, chatting and laughter…

A HUGE thank you from me to everyone who came along and made the day what it was; a day with lots of laughs, meeting up with and making new friends, and some photography thrown in for good measure…and hey what about that weather 🙂

So did you take part in a walk? If not, then why not look at taking part next year and being part of what is a whole lot of fun, and undoubtedly the biggest photography and social event there is!
Enjoy 🙂

*Photo Walkers around the World have until 12pm EDT on Friday 7th October to submit their images to the relevant Photo Walk Web Page, and be entered for a chance to win thousands of pounds worth of prizes including software, books, photography equipment and much more…Good luck everyone!

    Have wanted to do a photo walk for a couple of years now but have never been able to make the dates, so this year was my first, and will definitely not be my last. Great day in a great location meeting great people! Thanks for organising Glyn. Top job.

    Great video! I was shooting a wedding on that day so couldn’t make it. Funnily enough your route is very similar to the one I walk during most of my lunch hours, doing street photography.

    Maybe I’ll make it to next years’ photo walk? 🙂
