Photowalking Utah has teamed up with the Utah Chapter of the National MS Society for a unique photowalk on April 24th, 2010 in Salt Lake City.  The group has been asked to capture images of the WALK 2010 event and its 4,000+ participants.  This is a great way for us as photographers to help ‘give back’ to a great cause through our photography.  Here are the details:

  • Date:  April 24, 2010
  • Time:  8:30 am – complete  (before noon)
  • Where:  Meet in front of the Apple Store at the Gateway (10 South Rio Grande Street, Salt Lake City)

The Photowalking Utah crew will meet up near the starting point of the walk.  After some info and instructions on the day, we will fan out and take photos of the event.  For anyone who has ever wanted to try out ‘photojournalistic’ type of shooting, this will be a great place to do so.  After the event participating photographers will be asked to share any of their images that they would like with the local MS Chapter for it to use.  It’s worth noting that photos taken at this event in years past have been picked up by national publications.

As always, these events are free of charge and open to anyone regardless of your photographic skill or what kind of camera you have.  For more information and/or to let us know you’re coming, head on over to the event discussion at the Photowalking Utah Flickr Group.

I hope to see a good crowd on the 24th!
