Worldwide Photo Walk

28 July 2009

July 18th was the day of Scott Kelby’s Second Annual Worldwide Photo Walk.   Over 900 photowalks occurred on that day.   If you are unfamiliar with Photowalks they are a great way to meet other photographers, share knowledge, explore new locations, and learn new things.    My first photowalk was at Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake.   The biggest thing I learned during that walk was that all photographers are not territorial jerks.  There is a core group that understands that by sharing their knowledge both parties improve their skills and knowledge.

This photo walk had and “official” registration of 50 individuals, but a count of the group photo shows around 80 total participants.   While proceeding in our walk, I ran into one of the photographers I have come to admire for his skill and genuine good nature, David Terry.   He had brought along a model and was gracious enough to allow MANY other photographers the opportunity to take shots.   While I’m sure it spoiled his plans a little, the graciousness of both he and his daughter Cassie where amazing to watch.    What follows is a small selection of photo’s with the model and elsewhere during the walk.

While not actually pole dancing we all lost our concentration when a photographer yelled out Pretend you love the pole

Yep that’s right, after that comment I must say I was laughing so hard that I couldn’t shoot for a few minutes.

Our model was up at 5:30 AM and didn’t finish until close to 2:00 PM in some high heat.  The fact that she looks this good and still had energy at the end of the shoot was a testiment to her fortitude and professionalism.  WOW!

A little different treatment of a photo I loved from this photo walk.

Finally a little fun with some friends at the photowalk.   Many of you who are familiar with the Utah Photography scene will recognize Scott Jarvie a fantastic wedding photographer.

See ya ’til next time, I promise to post a little sooner than once a quarter.

      Melissa – we had a blast even if we did get off track. The window was Cassie’s idea, and a great one at that!
