On Saturday, Oct. 13, the whole world will be walking again with Scott Kelby, president of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) and No. 1 bestselling technology and photography book author, in his Fifth Annual Worldwide Photo Walk -- the world's largest global social photography event in the history of photography.
The local photography club -- the Dyersburg-Dyer County Photography Club - is helping Dyersburg take part in this worldwide event by organizing a Photo Walk at Sorghum Valley (Dyer County Fairgrounds) on Saturday, Oct. 13, starting at 3 p.m. The group will gather at the church in Sorghum Valley and then walk throughout the area taking photos for entry into the worldwide event. The walk will end at 5 p.m. for a Dutch treat dinner at Neil's Bar-B-Que Restaurant.
The former president of the club David Hayes stated the event is for photographers of all skill levels using point and shoot to DSLR cameras. And local club members are excited about providing this event to all photographers in the area. The photography club originated out of common levels of interest of local residents, David Hayes and professional photographer Jeff Roush, who both wanted to provide a venue for local photographers to gather and discuss their passion for photography. The club meets each month on the third Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Professional Development Center in Dyersburg. Hayes re-emphasized the event is open to everyone whether or not they are a member of the club. Current President Steve Guttery also stated he is excited about this event taking place in the community.
Added to this year's event is a special G+ page for the Photo Walk. The Google+ platform will help people connect more easily across the globe, share images, and possibly host a hangout or two sharing some of their Photo Walk experiences.
