Hey there photog friends! It’s time for another photowalk on the Central Coast!
I’m proposing a downtown San Luis Obispo photowalk.
Here’s the catch, since many of you might consider this, but then decide against it because of the distance from you in LA or the Bay area, I’m suggesting that you make an overnight trip of it!We have great places to photograph here on the Central Coast. If you come down from the north, you could stop off at Hearst Castle before or after your trip. From the south? No problem, stop off in Santa Barbara as the addendum to your trip!
I could very well plan a SLO photowalk for one day, and an extra photowalk the next day out at Montana de Oro, the largest state park in CA.
What say you? C’mon you old time photowalkers!
I chose 7/22/2012 and we’ll meet at 3pm, on the steps of the old Mission, in downtown San Luis Obispo, CA.
Interested in joining me for a little photowalking around downtown Sacramento? Then do it!
Let’s meet at 4 pm in front of the California Capitol building. This will give us plenty of time to gather up, before the sun sets.
Dusk and twilight shots around the capitol building can be wonderful. The downtown area is just loaded with great neon for some additionally great night life photography.

Hey California photowalkers! I really, really, really need to get out photowalking with some of you again! It’s been too long. I’m thinking about Morro Bay. For most of you that would mean planning a very long day, or a short trip, up the the Central Coast. Darn, it’s just so ugly up here.
I don’t know when yet. I think I’d like to connect with at least a few of you first, then we can select a day together.
My pal Richard Wong recently created some wonderful photographs in and around Morro Bay, including the immense Morro Rock. Seeing his post lit a little fire in me. I’ve been to Morro Bay before, and I love it. It’s very pretty, and there’s wonderful opportunities for the photographically oriented.
So, what say you?

So I decided to join an already planned photowalk on 10/1/11, right there in Morro Bay!
When we’re in San Francisco, in September, I’d love to meet up with new and old photo friends for an evening of photowalking.
Meet us at Fog City Diner, at 7 pm on 9/12/2010. The sun will be setting around 7:23 that evening, so you’ll have some time to get there before it gets dark. See the embedded map for the whole route. We’ll head up to Coit Tower, then back towards the coastline towards Fisherman’s Wharf, and then just past into Fort Mason.
That’s it. Bring your camera and a tripod! Tell us you’re coming, over on Facebook or Upcoming.org.

DON’T FORGET YOUR TRIPOD!
Oh, and all of you should go and invite 2 more people, right now!
OK, let’s get right to the point. I’m going to be photowalking around old town Folsom on February 20th, 2010. If you want to join me, meet me at the Folsom Railroad Museum at 4pm on that day. I’ve wanted to wander around old town Folsom for quite some time. It’s got fun history, and some great old west architecture. We’ll end the late afternoon/early evening photowalk watching the sunset from Folsom’s Historic Truss Bridge, just a short walk from old town. Below is a basic map of the area.
Head over to the Upcoming Event page, or the Facebook Event page to RSVP!
"Mission Santa Barbara", by Kevin Labianco
Come join us at the Santa Barbara Mission for an afternoon photowalk. Meet on the front steps of the Mission, at 2pm on 12/12/09.
When we’re done there, we’ll head downtown for a little bit, and probably finish for a quick beer.
More to follow.
Hey folks, back on the 16th of October, I met up with a decent-sized group of photowalkers. We had tactically chosen downtown Palo Alto for our little meetup.
Over 30 folks showed up in the early evening, with sundown threatening to darken our whole event. No problem, since downtown Palo Alto is loaded with great neon and other lighting.
Here’s a simple slideshow of all the current photos from that fun day!
