Photowalking… It’s Spreading
<Photowalking the Santa Barbara Mission at TrevorCarpenter.com I was very pleased with the turn out for our photowalking get together yesterday at the train museum and want to thank everyone who has been so supportive today and talked about what a great time we all had. Getting a group of 20+ photographers together for a shoot is one of the best things in the world.
And a lot of people are writing saying they wish they could have been there and that while they were there in spirit, the only thing that kept them away was the distance.
But why should distance prevent people from photowalking? It shouldn’t. Part of what I think works really well with our photowalks are the combination of the social aspects of photography with a video representation of it. It’s a way to share the photowalk with the whole world.
So I was super pleased today to get an email from Trevor Carpenter down in Santa Barbara who has taken the initiative and has organized the next photowalk.
This one will take place on February 3rd at the Santa Barbara Mission. Although I won’t be able to make this one, I think it’s great that Trevor’s organizing it. Santa Barbara is such a great place to shoot. I went to college down there and there is so much beauty.
My friend torbakhopper (on Flickr) and mercho colay (on Zooomr) lives down in Santa Barbara and has been capturing it’s beauty for the past few years. If you get a chance to check out some of his Santa Barbara shots as well it’s definitely worth it. I shot him an email on the photowalk as well.

Trevor is putting the evnet on at The Santa Barbara Mission at 1pm and has more details over on his blog. Be sure to set up an upcoming.org event for the photowalk Trevor and point people to that as well. Here’s a link to our upcoming.org photowalk from yesterday.
And if you are interested in setting up a photowalk of your own be sure to drop me a line. I’ll help promote it and I’m sure Scoble will as well. Photowalking is a great way to meet old friends, make new friends, and make the world a more beautiful place by sharing the photos that people come up with. I hope someone can also video the Santa Barbara one because I’d love to see that.
