Announcing Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk 10th Anniversary Date!
The concept of a Photowalk is simple. Photowalks are created by Walk Leaders in cities all over the world. Walkers meet up at a pre-designated location – downtown areas, zoos, business parks, you name it! – to spend a few hours socializing, capturing images and sharing with like-minded people. At the end of the Photowalk, most groups convene at local restaurants or taverns to share their images and experiences over food.
In addition to the event, photo walkers will be able to upload their favorite picture to our popular Photowalk contest for a chance to win Scott Kelby’s THE PHOTOSHOP CC BOOK FOR DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHERS e-book , a DSLR, gift cards, apps, camera bags and more. We will also name a Grand Prize winner and 10 finalists to be selected by Scott Kelby himself!
The event is free, but pre-registration is required. Register at www.worldwidephotowalk.com, locate your city and complete the free sign up form. You can also apply to be a Photowalk leader in your area.
This year, we encourage every photo walker to help support this year’s initiative to “Walk with a Purpose” by donating to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya! https://www.generosity.com/community-fundraising/let-s-transform-orphans-lives-together-wwpw2017
Additionally, participants can connect socially before, during and after the event using the hashtag #WWPW2017 hash tag on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

About the WorldWidePhotowalk in Inverness, Florida:
Calling all my fellow photographers to celebrate the WorldWide Photowalk in Inverness, Florida! Enjoy a fun morning filled with our favorite thing, taking photographs. There is also a photography contest with prizes, how can you beat that! We will start our photography journey on the Cooter Park Boardwalk, enjoying nature and then on to downtown to photograph our beautiful Courthouse Square area. After the photowalk I would like everyone to join me for a get-together at Stumpknockers in downtown Inverness, for some great local food and conversation. See you there!
About your Inverness, Florida Walk Leader: Gina Lamar
This is my first year as a WorldWide Photowalk Leader and I am so excited. I know that as an extrovert, sometimes photography can be a solitary career choice, so this is a great way to go meet like-minded creative people.
Gina Lynde Lamar, owner of Tortuga Tropical Artistry, is an Award Winning Fine Art Photographer in Inverness, Florida. She has showcased her sought after photography in juried art shows all over Florida including the nationally acclaimed ‘Old Florida Celebration of the Arts’ in Cedar Key, named ‘one of the Top 10 Juried Art Festivals in America’ and the ‘Festival of the Arts’ in Inverness. Gina is fast becoming one of Florida’s Premier Nature and Wildlife photographers because her passion for photographing the beauty all around us and sharing it for others to enjoy truly shines through her work. You, too, will love how her photography captures special moments, which create magical memories for you and your loved ones that last a lifetime. Gina was raised in the wilderness of Oregon, camping and spending much of her time outdoors. Because of this, she has a special connection with animals and nature. She exclaims, "Even though I have never-ending bug bites and bruises from my outdoor excursions, I feel each day creating my photography is a blessing.”
