On Saturday Oct. 5, it was my distinct pleasure to lead a group of photographers in Nashua, NH for the 6th annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. 45 photographers of all skill levels joined me for a photographic exploration of the historic mill-yard district along the banks of the Nashua, River.
We were part of a global photography event. More than 28,000 photographers in over 1200 locations around the planet went out to capture a single day with their cameras!
My group that explored Nashua was mix of locals and folks from all over New England. It was nice mix of my past photo workshop students and many new faces. What I found most interesting was the unique viewpoint each photographer had of the common space and moment.
I am looking forward to seeing the photography they created during this photography event. Even though we were walking down the same streets at the moment , the photography will be just as varied as the people in our group.

I am the organizer for the Nashua, New Hampshire gathering of the 2013 Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. This is an annual event that involves more than 15, 000 photographers in over 900 cities worldwide. (with many more joining every day.) We will spend a few hours exploring the Millyard district of downtown Nashua with our cameras and then we will gather at a local pub for some social fun. I hope you will join us!
This is free event that is open to photographers of all skill levels. We already have over 30 people signed up so make sure you REGISTER TODAY. This will be a great chance to meet other photographers, and to have some fun in downtown Nashua.
Our edition of the photowalk will start at the French Mill Worker memorial statue along the Nashua River (Water Street parking lot) at 2:30 PM on October 5. We will wander along the banks of the river, into the mill yards and around the downtown area. My studio is located in the Picker Building which is in the heart of the old mills and I am very familiar with the photo opportunities we can discover here.
You can enter the photography that you make during this event into a photo competition with plenty of prizes up for grabs. For a good explanation check out this video with Scott Kelby which provides the background about the photowalk and more details.
