Santa Cruz Photowalk/Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome to our first Photowalk/Scavenger Hunt of 2011! 

This event will be held at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk on Sunday, March 27, 2011. We will meet at 10 am at Ideal Bar and Grill (located at the corner of Beach Street and Pacific Ave. at the beginning of the Wharf - www.idealbarandgrill.com) for coffee. After we caffeinate (or de-caffeinate, your choice) we'll distribute the Scavenger Hunt list for everyone, and start shooting!

Everyone will receive a list of ten items to look for. We did this last year and it was a HUGE success. (Last year's event was at History Park, it was a blast!) You'll have artistic freedom, but the list will give you some direction and make it fun. Everyone will get a badge to wear so you'll know other members when you see them (we have over 50 participants so far). After the event, everyone is invited to upload their photos to an album we will create on the meetup site and we can revel in the creativity and talent of the group!


Everyone is welcome, so feel free to bring friends and family.

    Oops, sorry, I added 2 photos but they started a new album instead of going into theScavenger Hunt album. Can you just move them over?

    Sally and Steve are great hosts. I wish I could have had lunch with them after the shoot.

    The only suggestion I have would be to maybe have the photographers pair up for a while. This way we can network and know each other better.

    Loved the idea of a theme like a scavenger hunt.

    It was fun; the weather was close to perfect and there was a nice size group of people who participated. I'm up for another one.

    It was a fun morning. Great to meet Sally and Steve and some of the other participants. The best part was that it was on a morning that was finally full of sun! Perfect timing for shooting. I also liked that the Meetup got me back to Santa Cruz, so good choice of place -- fun and different.

    It was great meeting Sally and Steve. It was nice to be out of the rain! The concept was cool but I would have suggested that we break up into small groups of people who don't know each other so that there could be some cross-pollination of ideas.

    Lovely weather, good turnout, including quite a few first timers. Very pleasant company and lunch afterward with a small group. Thank you all for taking the time to spend the day shooting pictures with us. The general consensus was to do more photowalks, and we will be happy to oblige!

    I'm looking forward to all your results! I'd help organize from Vancouver. Our starting point could be Stanley Park.

    I'm in Santa Cruz but arrived too late to meet up before the start, and now I don't see anyone. I'm doing my own thing, but it'd be great to meet for lunch if there's a post meetup food thing happening. :)

    I'm driving from Oakland and leaving shortly. Will be there ASAP!

    March 27, 2011

  • Sally C.

    Yes, we will be happy to open this up to everyone in the future. That's a great idea!
