Get ready for Scott Kelby’s 2nd Annual Worldwide Photowalk on July 18! Before the big day, I’d like to share with you some details about our walk.
First off: Location
Our walk will be at the Greenbelt Park (Greenbelt Mall) in Makati. Don’t worry about permits. I have secured a permit for our group to take photos there.
We will be meeting at 4:00pm by the fountain across Starbucks Greenbelt 3. We will then walk around the Greenbelt area, starting from the garden/chapel, go up the Greenbelt 3 to 4 walkway, walk to Greenbelt 5, and then go around Greenbelt 1 & 2.
We will end up back at Greenbelt 3 at around 630pm and we’ll have dinner at Kitchen. They have good grape shakes there, which will be very refreshing after our walk! 🙂
What can we Shoot?
We can take photos of the buildings, the pond, the garden, people, etc. Since Greenbelt has a policy, we can shoot everything I mentioned EXCEPT the store fronts and displays. This is against the store policy so please make sure to follow this.
What about inside the mall or the walkways of Greenbelt? I was told that we can shoot there, but there should be one requirement — we should not disrupt pedestrian traffic. Inside the mall, we can take pictures of the common areas, but PLEASE, don’t shoot the stores. We don’t want to cause a commotion among the store tenants. 🙂
Finally, we are a big group; there’s 60 of us. When we walk, we should just be in small groups.
What’s At Stake
I don’t know the limit yet on the photos that you guys will submit. However, there will be 1 winner per location that I will pick. The winner will get a copy of Scott’s Digital Photography Book Vol. 3.
The big news though is this — Scott Kelby will be picking the top 10 (Honorable Mention) photos from ALL the walks as well as the GRAND PRIZE winner. Have you seen the list of prizes? Wow it is indeed gear lust: Nikon D700, Drobo, OnOne Plugin Suite, NAPP Membership, and a lot more!!!
I’m sure you guys will be extra competitive. Just make sure that this is still a social event and it’s really a good time to get to know fellow photographers as well as give some tips & tricks to the newbies. 🙂
Make sure to read my blog post on checking your logins and downloading Lightroom 2 prior to the walk.
Our restaurant: Kitchen, is asking if we can pre-order the food so that they can prepare for our group. In line with this, I will be posting a listing of the food they have here. However, in case you know what you want, please feel free to email me your orders. I will take care of consolidating the orders and giving it to them.
Thanks and see you all in 2 weeks!
In case you have questions, please post them here and I will get back to you.
