We all know Northport is picture perfect. Camera enthusiasts are about to discover the same.
For photographers of all skills levels and with all types of equipment – from consumer-grade point-and-shoots to high-end professional cameras – Saturday is the fifth annual Worldwide Photowalk, and a local walk is planned at Northport Village Park.
The Northport photowalk begins at 9:45 a.m. at the gazebo.
Worldwide Photowalk is a free social photography event organized by Scott Kelby, the president of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Volunteer walk leaders guide groups of up to 50 photographers on a tour of an interesting or photogenic area.
In 2011, there were more than 1,000 photo walks around the globe, an upwards of 28,000 participants, according to the Worldwide Photo Walk website. This year, there are already 1,334 walks scheduled and nearly 30,000 walkers registered.
Because it is a social event, the fun keeps going after the walking photo shoot. Participants meet up at a bar or restaurant afterward to share and compare their pictures.
