What do photographers do when they aren’t shooting, editing, uploading, or blogging?? They go on photo walks! Well, at least the ones I know do!
If you didn’t see the post of last month’s photo walk, you should check it out! For those of you who don’t know, my sweet friend Elaine started a challenge group on Facebook for women photographers. It’s a place where we can encourage, challenge, and help each other become better photographers/business owners. Each month since March, we have a photo walk!
What is a photo walk you might ask? It’s exactly that…with some food on top! Basically, we pick a place, bring our cameras and start shooting! Whether it be capturing details of a little boutique with window light to die for, colorful flowers in a pot along the sidewalk, or maybe a bike that has to belong to a flower loving hippie…or my personal favorite, photographing my photog friends in action, doing what they are passionate about!
After shooting for an hour-ish, we either grab lunch nearby..or a delicious snack..such as ICE CREAM! During that time, we are able to chat about life, family, business and the struggles/high points being a small business owner comes with! That’s when we really get to know each other and build friendships. After meeting some of these girls for the first time, I left feeling like I’d known them for years!
The photo walks are so needed because it’s a time for us to shoot for fun, for us, to get inspired, to refine our skills, try something new & get refreshed so we aren’t getting burnt out on strictly taking pictures for other people. If you’re a photographer or interested in photography & this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please contact me and I’ll add you to the group!
Also, a shout out to my hubby for coming along and pushing Liam in the stroller and a thank you to Elaine’s hubby James coming to keep Jon company while we girls shoot! I’ve also included some amazing photos that some of the girls took of me shooting..and posing! 🙂 [at the bottom of the page!] So thank you all for being such wonderful photogs and giving me some photos I can use for my website & fan page! Love you girls!! Enjoy!
The Feathered Nest Design Studio in Dunedin, you gotta check it out!! 😀
One of the employees started posing for us! 🙂 Hey, If there were 7 photogs in my ice cream shop, I would too!
Liam was zonked the whole time!
I absolutely love this photo Elaine got of Liam!
