Well…this year will be my 5th year with Scott Kelby’s, Worldwide Photo Walk–though, I’ve decided to step it down a notch–and, not lead this time around. (Also, usually I’m the first walk up in the state…this year would have been no exception. What’s going on MN!?) I am super excited to find, and register, as a walker though. I may turn it into a road trip for myself–complete with coffee, licorice, and a Pearson’s Nut Roll (my fav); or, I may just drive 30 minutes to the closest one because I’m feeling lazy. Either way…my role this year, will be as a walker. For sure.
Because October is just a little too much, normally, for this photographer. But, this October, on top of my regular, freelance work, and my work at Main Floral, Sweet River, and Discover Anoka…I will also be leading a day long workshop for teachers in the Anoka-Hennepin district. The topic I’ll be teaching to is all about bringing photography to children. I’m putting together new lesson ideas for teachers to bring back to their students, as well as teaching the educators the very basics of photography, itself. A few years ago, I would have tried to do it all–nowadays, I know that that’s stupid. Leading the walk isn’t a ton of work–but, it always means a lot more emails to answer, more responsibility on my end, and a longer day, on the day of the walk, itself. Instead of devoting the time to that–I’m going to just keep devoting the time to lesson plans, and creating effective teaching tools.
So…if anyone reading this wants to lead a walk at Minnehaha Falls–go for it! If you need help with setting it up–or, have questions along the way, feel free to reach out. 🙂
