Worldwide Photo Walk

Historic setting to inspire photographers

The Laramie County Community College mass media/multimedia department will host its second Photowalk in conjunction with Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk in mid-October.

The free Photowalk at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14, provides local photographers an opportunity to photograph a specific area and compare their work with other photographers; meanwhile, other walks will be held on Oct. 13 all around the world.

LCCC’s multimedia instructor, J.L. O’Brien, said, “it’s an opportunity to get together with other people interested in photography and an opportunity to learn from each other as photographers.”

Explore Wyoming history with your camera

This year the majority of the historic Wyoming Hereford Ranch east of Cheyenne will be available for photographers to explore. The ranch features several acres of farmland, barns and vintage farm equipment as well as houses cattle and serves as home to several species of birds.

“It’s a little piece of Wyoming history,” O’Brien said. “It’s a rare opportunity for some of us to shoot on a working ranch.”

Photographers will be able to shoot until 6 p.m. when the Photowalk will end, and photos will be reviewed.

The winner of the contest will be entered into a pool with other winners across the world and will have the opportunity to win prizes.

Photowalks happening around the world

In 2011, more than 1,000 Photowalks were conducted worldwide with more than 28,000 people attending the walks. The 2011 LCCC Photowalk attracted more than 50 participants to downtown around the Cheyenne Depot while a weekly farmers’ market and the first-ever Zombiefest were held.

“Last year’s Photowalk was fantastic. I was blown away by the number of people who signed up and showed up,” O’Brien said.

Dinner will be provided following the Photowalk from 6–8 p.m. Details will be provided on the day of the event.

The walk is limited to 50 participants. To register for the local walk, go to http://worldwidephotowalk.com. For more information, contact O’Brien at jobrien@lccc.wy.edu or 778-1368.
