Towards the end of 2010, a group of us got together and did a downtown Phoenix photowalk early one morning and had a great time. Starbucks coffee, gorgeous sunrise, illegal train track walking, chased away by imaginary cops…it was a ton of fun.
I’ve had people express a lot of interest in doing another one, so I’d like to start making a habit out of it. There is a ton to see and shoot in the urban Phoenix area and we could probably do a photowalk every month this year and still not get to everything.
So without further ado, here is the information on the next event!
The Urban Phoenix Photowalk
When: February 5th, 2011
Where: Starbucks at the Arizona Center (map)
Cost: Parking…was $12 at the Arizona Center without Starbucks validation.
What to Bring?
Entirely up to you. Obviously a camera would be helpful. Since we’ll be starting off in in the dark hours before sunrise at around 7:20am, a tripod will be handy. Bring your lenses, flashes if you want, strobes, filters, backpacks, whatever you need to do what you want to do. And if all you have is a point and shoot, that’s totally okay!
I’d also suggest stashing a bottle of water and snack in your backpack too as we’ll be covering a few miles of walking without much of a break besides shooting.
For me, I’ll have the camera, 2-3 lenses, a few extra batteries, a tripod and probably a few odds and ends in my camera bag. Not much else.
Check the weather that morning to see if you need a jacket or anything…it was pretty chilly back in late December!
If you are interested, let me know via the form below! While there is no cost or need to really register, it’s good for me to know who is coming so we know who we have to wait for before heading out.
