What is it
For the past 11 years, on the first Saturday of October each year, photographers and enthusiasts around the world get out their cameras and meetup to support The Spring of Hope Kenya Orphanage, an organisation that feeds, houses, educates, and empowers young orphans so that they can grow up to not just survive but succeed.
I am associated with this particular photo-walk since 2011. A few hours spent doing photography, contributing to a cause and meeting new people, there was no reason for me not to participate.
This year I am leading the Melbourne CBD walk. I had done it before in Sydney and was a participant in last years walks which was led by good friend Alan Rogers, a terrific wedding photographer himself. Also this year we may have Joe Jongue, a Fujfilm influencer and co-founder of FujiXAus, the community to be in if you are a Fujifilm user in Australia, Roger Hyland (the human encyclopedia of everything street art, especially in Melbourne), Natalia Naa the upcoming photographer extraordinaire and many more. So it will be a great day for networking, making images and talking shop.
How you can participate
So, if you are in Melbourne and think you want to be part of this fun day with a cause, head over to this link and register yourself.
If you are not in Melbourne, Australia but still interested, then head over to this link to find a walk near you.
More later. TC
