Get ready for another great photography experience!

Ray Mabry here and I’m excited to announce that I will be leading the Santa Rosa group for the Scott Kelby's Annual Worldwide Photo Walk for the 6th year in a row. If you haven't done this before, here are some fun facts...

Photographers all over the world gather for this event. Last year the count was over 1137 Photo walks and over to 21,000 walkers.

You don’t have to sign up if you just want to come out and join us! You can register for the meet up here instead.

If you do compete in the World Wide Photo Walk contest, you will be able to upload your favorite photo for our local competition that I will be judging. The winner will receive a copy of Scott Kelby's new book and the winning photo is also submitted for the World Wide photo competition.

    This very same location and the Photowalk is where I started with this group 3 years ago . I felt very welcomed then and have been inspired and challenged by each meetup since.

    Glad I could make it, and MORE glad that I could survive 2 hours on my feet, something I have not been able to accomplish in 4 or so months. I have a LOT of fun and very much enjoyed my interactions with all of you. Looking forward to the next live event in a week.
