Pho­tog­ra­phy is a skill that requires prac­tice and expe­ri­ence to devel­op, and the more you prac­tice, the bet­ter you’ll become. Our pho­towalks aim to get you out and take as many pho­tos as pos­si­ble!

What is a photowalk?

A pho­towalk is an event where pho­tog­ra­phers and enthu­si­asts of all skill lev­els come togeth­er at a pre-deter­mined loca­tion to take pho­tos, prac­tice their skills, and dis­cuss pho­tog­ra­phy. A leader guides the group to dif­fer­ent places, offer­ing tips and advice. Par­tic­i­pants bring their cam­eras and equip­ment and pho­to­graph what­ev­er inter­ests them. The atmos­phere is casu­al, and the empha­sis is on hav­ing fun and learn­ing from each oth­er.

Pho­towalks pro­vide an oppor­tu­ni­ty to meet oth­er pho­tog­ra­phy enthu­si­asts, share your work, find inspi­ra­tion, and dis­cov­er parts of the city you don’t typ­i­cal­ly vis­it. So grab your cam­era and join us on a pho­towalk!

What to wear

We hold our pho­towalks out­side all year round, so it’s essen­tial to check the weath­er fore­cast and dress appro­pri­ate­ly for the con­di­tions on the day of the walk. This is espe­cial­ly impor­tant on cold or wet days, so bring warm and water­proof cloth­ing to stay com­fort­able and pro­tect your equip­ment.1Please be aware that the per­for­mance of lithi­um bat­ter­ies in cold tem­per­a­tures may be reduced. To ensure the best per­for­mance of your cam­era dur­ing the work­shop, we rec­om­mend bring­ing two or more ful­ly charged bat­ter­ies if sub­ze­ro tem­per­a­tures are expect­ed on the day of the event.

Photowalk meeting point and location

Expo­sure Ther­a­py’s pho­towalks are held out­side and involve walk­ing to dif­fer­ent loca­tions. Please note that some places we vis­it may not be ful­ly acces­si­ble.

We may need to change the pho­towalk meet­ing point if there’s bad weath­er. We’ll inform you in advance if this hap­pens.
