One of my favorite photo events is Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk. This years Photo Walk event will be held on October 5. It’s a cool event that lets photographers socialize, walk around, shoot photos, and have fun with other photographers.
The event is totally free and a total blast. Last year there were over 900 Photo Walks and over 32,000 people who participated around the world. You can sign up here for a walk in your neighborhood (or start one if there isn’t one near you).
If you’re near Washington, DC (or want to come visit) I have openings in my walk. http://worldwidephotowalk.com/walk/falls-church-va-united-states-falls-church-va/
