Beaufort participates in Worldwide Photo Walk

“Photography is usually viewed as a solitary activity, but the truth of the matter is that people love to shoot together, compare notes and just have fun with photography.”

On Saturday, October 11, photographers will gather in cities across the globe to capture a slice of life through their eyes during the 7th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk.  It’s the world’s largest global social photography event in the history of photography itself. Photographers of all walks of life and skill levels gather together, on the same day to socialize, learn new tips from each other, and explore their corner of the world through photography. Last year more than 1,300 walks took place in countries such as the Philippines, Iran, India, Great Britain and the U.S.

The Beaufort walk will start at the foot of the Woods Bridge in downtown Beaufort and will photograph in The Point from 9 to 11 a.m. Participation is free, just register at http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/walk/beaufort-sc-united-states-the-point. Participants are also eligible to win prizes from the Worldwide Photo Walk’s sponsors if their photo is chosen as the best photo of the day by their walk leader. Each winning walk photo is then entered into a global competition where Scott Kelby picks the single “best photo” of the event along with 10 runners-up.
