Come join the group in your city or there is still time to create your own group an be part of this history making social media event with Google+. Places include: Singapore, Denver, Switzerland, Phoenix, London, several places in LA, Hong Kong and Dubai (oh yes, Dubai photo walk is on my bucket list) Check out the Dubai listing they are meeting at the world's tallest building! Someday I WILLdo a photowalk in Dubai and after this event I will know photographers there so I can get that checked off the list! I will be hosting the Williams, Arizona photowalk on Rt66 or we might just jump in the car and head up to the Grand Canyon. If you are in Arizona and want to come to the cool country, please let me know.
This event will provide an opportunity for people go create relationships with photographers of all skill levels all over the world. A participant will be able to circle and comment on all the photos as the doors are opened through a common interest in cities around the globe. Think global, act local brings on new meaning as you really do have a way to connect with the world and share your community through social media at Google+. Share this with your sellers and your buyers they might want to connenct around the world too! Have your clients and friends come with you and shout about social media and how nice it is to have a global community!
When: Saturday, June 30, 2012 check time in your city
Where: Anywhere in the world check over 200 locations
Who: You! Photographers of all skill and levels. From beginners to pros. What if you only have a phone camera? YES! you too!
Why: To celebrate the one year anniversary of Google+ in the G+ photo community. To hang out with other fun Google+ photographers. To SHARE MORE PHOTOS! To meet new and interesting people.
Cost: All Free! The best things in life are free right? We just need people to step up and decide to host one in your city.
Anyone can host one. Groups of people can host them. Anyone can be involved with them. This is a loosely defined community of photographers.
Nobody is specifically leading the groups and everybody is specifically leading them. Someone just needs to set up a page for your walk on Plancast and everybody can hop on board for a walk. A walk can have 2 people or 200 people.
The fun continues as there will be a contest with prizes for the photographs. You mist be a google+ member to participate in the contest. You can certainly join in the photo walk and not be a member of Google+ but you have to be a member BEFORE the walk to enter the contest.
Photo judging for this great event will be broken down into the following categories:
Sunset or Sunrise
Portrait (candid or posed)
Black & White (monochrome)
Google+ is reaching out to the world and this is where you can get in and connect with something exciting that everyone loves to talk about and look at, photos of cool things.
This is what the contest rules say:
"Remember that this is all about enhancing our photographic abilities and interaction with others here on Google Plus. We are here to have fun and to learn a bit along the way. This is a positive experience and please don’t make any negative comments along the way.
The one and only rule is that you must be a Google Plus member before this walk to enter.
Anyone and everyone can participate and take photos in the various photowalks around the world and actually that is encouraged, the more the merrier! We are just limiting the judging to existing G+ers. ;-)"
