Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk on Hollywood Blvd.

*** I'm sticking this up at the top here to tell you all that you have to sign up for this walk at this link:

http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/walk/los-angeles-ca-united-states-hollywoodvine-red-line-station/

RSVPing on this meetup page is good but you need to sign up at the link above as well, to be counted and able to come. Thanks!

And now to the announcement:

Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you know that it's that time of year again...time for thousands of photographers to meet up and shoot together on one special day, at photowalks all over the world!

Photographer and author Scott Kelby coordinates hundreds of photowalks for his WorldWide Photowalk day, led by hosts at each location. This year I'm representin' by repeat hosting my famous Hollywood Boulevard photo walk. And you have to sign up for my walk here:

http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/walk/los-angeles-ca-united-states-hollywoodvine-red-line-station/

This will be a ton of fun and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm going to concentrate on the more inconspicuous aspects and residents of Hollywood Boulevard rather than the typical vendor or tourist scene and characters. But you can shoot anything you want!

If you have any trouble signing up or have any questions, please let me know by leaving a comment here. Now if you want to lead your own walk or search for another photo walk to sign up for, you can do that too. Easy. Just go here:

http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/

The important thing is to get out there, shoot and have some fun!

One more thing...the photowalk group is limited to 50 people. As of now, there are 42 slots left and it was just announced yesterday. So if this sounds like fun, don't wait to sign up!

Join or login to comment.

    There's a ton of images of our walk here on Meetup but just a few of the 50 registered Kelby photowalkers have submitted their best images.

    The winning photographer not only gets one of Scott's eBooks on photography, their image is also sent to Scott for his consideration in winning a lot of other really great prizes, so submit today!

      Jerry, its the number 1 reason organizers quit. The answer is to either charge dues, charge for events , or throw people out who are constant "no shows". All of these and combinations of these have been used.. I have tried to avoid doing these things,, But, the truth is that a group like this is only good as long as people show respect and consideration for each other.

    • Suga R.

      Thanks, Jerry. I did not realize they were on the east coast and I assumed I had till the end of the day. I know you sent reminders, thank you! All is well. I had fun- thanks for putting this event together! Suga Ray~

  • Jerry

    To the 50 Kelby registered walkers, submit your best single image you took on the walk for a chance to win one of Scott's photography books (in ebook format) and maybe even the Grand Prize!

    Watch this video to see how easy it is...http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/2014/10/14/uploading-pictures-walkers-competition/

    The cutoff date to submit an image for the contest is October 27, 2014 and as of today only a handful of photographers have submitted their best image. So come on folks, show me what you've got! Give me the image you think is your best from our walk and you could be our local walk contest winner!

    Just go to my Kelby walk page here, click on the green button and upload... http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/walk/los-angeles-ca-united-states-hollywoodvine-red-line-station/

    Everybody please don't worry about the donation. If you have already donated, thank you very much. If you haven't donated yet, you can either donate later if/when convenient, or not at all. It's completely up to you and NOT a requirement to come on this walk. No one will be asking for a donation at this photowalk so don't worry!

    October 10, 2014

    • Jerry

      It doesn't work that way, Larry. Any donation is optional. The walk is free. And the 50 Kelby registered photographers on the official Walk List have the option to submit their best single image to be considered.

  • Chris F.

    The question of flash or no flash in street photography has raised its head,, Bruce Gilden was used as an example of one who uses flash.. ..
    Gilden has a very offensive , Paparazzi style of ambush photography,, ... If you do what he does and shoot like that in L.A, eventually you will get hurt. .. That is not street photography. Gilden has got a lot of attention with it ,, but it makes street photographers look like paparazzi assholes .. Do not do that in this group.. Never do what he does , Its unacceptable,,, Popping flashes in unsuspecting peoples faces has nothing to do with street photography,,

    1 · October 11, 2014

  • Suga R.

    friendly tip I just googled :

    Like any type of photography, it's not easy to get the perfect picture on the first try. Instead, many pictures will have to be taken, and lots of experimentation will be necessary. Sometimes the external flash will create more shadows as opposed to dispelling the current ones, and a photographer will have to go back to the drawing board. Just be sure to bring plenty of memory cards.

    1 · October 11, 2014

    • Chris F.

      Ok,, here it is,, when you shoot with me you do NOT use flash unless we agree on it beforehand.. What you do other times is up to you . Its that simple,,, When you aren't around me I don't care what you do.. or what you call it. We can have some outings where we use flash,, if that's what you want,,

      1 · October 11, 2014

    • Chris F.

      I'm not interested in the Gildon look..What he does is unacceptable,, You never intrusively stick a flash in someone face and shoot..... That gives everyone a bad name and promotes public hostility and eventually laws against what we do.. .. That hes "famous" means nothing ,, In music "Kiss" was famous.. As much as you admire Gildon,, do not ever do what he does in this group..

    Hi Jerry...looks like it's going to be a BLAST! I signed up for it...but thought it through and figured I recently just got my strength and health back and I shouldn't try to make the 11 block walk one way. I took myself off! HAVE FUN EVERYONE AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SOME AMAZING SHOTS...TAKE CARE!

    1 · October 10, 2014

    • Michelle

      I hope you'll be there. I can't walk very far either and may not make the whole walk up to Hollywood & Highland - since I still have problems with my back and legs. I don't know how far I'll make it, since my doctor wants me to build up my strength slowly. I'm glad to hear your strength and health are coming back. I know how that is.

      October 10, 2014

    • Jerry

      Larry, I sure wish you could come. You'll be missed. I certainly understand about building up your strength and I'm really glad you're getting better and stronger. I was looking forward to seeing you again. It's been a while. But your health comes first. You'll be missed on this walk, Larry. Take good care.

    NEW MEETING SPOT BEFORE OUR WALK!!!

    The W Hotel Hollywood has given us a huge meeting room to meet in before we start our photowalk. So now, instead of meeting outside the W Hotel Hollywood, we will now meet INSIDE the hotel. How cool is that!

    Just go inside the hotel, up the stairs or take the elevator to the 2nd Floor, and then walk to the Great Room 2 and the Great Room 3. The hotel is combining these meeting rooms for our group. Now we don't have to stand waiting on the street before we begin.

    HUGE thanks to Brian and Ani at the W Hotel Hollywood!!!

  • Michelle

    Jerry, a couple of questions. How far is Rocky Velasquez down on the wait list? If he's close to the top, can I give up my place so he can take photos for the site? He's a much better photographer than I am. :) What is the photo walker's media kit? Is that only for professional photographers? Also, if I stay until the end - depending on how I feel - I probably won't be going with you to Sharkey's, since I can't eat Mexican food because of health reasons. I will most likely be going to Kabuki on Vine. If anyone wants to join me, they are welcome. Thanks.

    October 7, 2014

    • Michelle

      Rocky is going to be there, I just wanted him to be able to enter the contest. Thank you for the explanation about the media kit.

      October 7, 2014

    • Michelle

      Oh this is going to be an exciting walk. I am resting during this week so I can walk as much as I can. It will also be nice to see you again, to meet Chris Farley, and see some of the people I saw at last year's walk.
