Are you a photographer in Northern Utah? Then grab your calendar and circle the date of Saturday January 24th. The Photowalking Utah group will be doing an indoor photowalk at Cactus and Tropicals in Draper. This will give the participants a chance to do some up-close-and-personal macro photography of the various plant life featured in the location. Here’s the info from the announcement at

Reserve the date: The afternoon of Saturday, January 24th will be the next photowalk, this time up at Cactus and Tropicals, the Draper location. We are planning on starting at 1:00pm and going up to 3:00pm.

Cactus and Tropicals is a garden center with plenty of indoor space that we can meet in to avoid the cold while having the opportunity to photograph plants, exotic and common. We are planning on having at least one macro studio setup for people to explore the wonders of macro photography as well as having studio lights set up to photograph flowers and plants from the everyday ficus to your more exotic Venus fly traps and orchids.

Location: 12252 S Draper Gate Dr (1325 E) Draper, UT 84020
Meet up at 1:00pm. We’ll have a brief introduction followed by wandering the greenhouse to photograph with at least a table or two set up for studio work.

As always, these events are free of charge and open to photographers of any skill level. This is a great way to get to meet like-minded people in your area.
