HoustonPhotowalks Year In Review
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

2012 was a great year for us at HoustonPhotowalks.  Here is a bit of the awesomeness that took place last year.
  • The facebook group has become a great photography conversation hub and meeting place
  • Several new Group Organizers joined the team and started leading events
  • The No-Show issues (and associated costs) are getting under control
  • We spent almost $2,500 supporting local business and museums
  • ALASKA!!
  • Launched the Mayan Temples adventure
  • Provided more educational opportunities and seminar discounts than any year in the past
  • Completed our 155th event
  • Largest "Black Friday Ads" discount newsletter ever
  • Standardized photowalk Leader compensation so they will keep creating more great events.
AND we launched some secondary sites
  • Launched http://photos.houstonphotowalks.com
  • Launched http://goodstuff.houstonphotowalks.com
  • Launched http://mayan2013.houstonphotowalks.com
Not all was perfect.  We sadly said goodbye to some very-valued Group Organizers as they moved from Houston.  :(

There are more great things to come.  In 2013, we will recruits (draft) more of our smarter members to lead more training classes.  I'm still holding out hope for the photographer's bootcamp.  We all have "resolutions".  LOL

And the Houston area has an unlimited number of interesting and unusual places to go photograph; there are plenty more photowalks in our future!  :)  

Be safe, see you at the next photowalk!
