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 know about my photowalks
The next photowalk is at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 30.
This will be an unthemed photowalk. Capture anything and everything you like to practice your technique and get those steps in!
Meeting Location and estimated route:
We’ll meet on the wooden boardwalk east of the Woodbine Park Fountain (Map Link). From there, we’ll head east towards the R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant and explore the grounds. Depending on the group’s sentiment and ability, we can take the precarious descent to the “old beach” and explore the area. Afterwards, we’ll head west towards Woodbine Beach West Dock and watch the sunset over the Ashbridges Bay Yacht Club.
All cameras are welcome!
- Bring your film or digital camera and phone.

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.
