Six years ago, photographer and educator Scott Kelby started the Worldwide PhotoWalk. This will be the third year that I will be leading a walk in the Orlando area. Last year I led a group of 50 photographers around Epcot during the Food and Wine festival. Everyone had a great time and the participants had many fantastic photos. You can read more about it here!

This year I’ll be leading my walk at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on the morning of October 5, 2013. I’m very excited about this location as there is so much diversity to the location. Signups have been extremely overwhelming (40+ signups already!), but I wanted to share the information here as well. If you are interested in signing up, please visit this site.

There are no requirements to participate in the walk. Everyone carries a camera these days – from the high end cameras to your smartphone. Bring whatever you have! There are also no costs to participate (aside from the entrance fees for Animal Kingdom). It’s a lot of fun — I hope to see you there!

Worldwide Photo Walk - Orlando, Florida

Yesterday was the 5th annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk. With over 1300 locations worldwide and over 32,000 participants, this annual event has grown larger than anyone would have ever expected.

This was my second year of hosting the Photo Walk in Orlando. Just like last year, I chose to lead the walk around Epcot at Walt Disney World. Nearly 50 walkers had registered to participate in the walk and it was great to see so many people back again from last year. The photos I have seen thus far from the participants have been fantastic!

It was a gorgeous evening at Epcot and many of the walkers also took advantage of the International Food and Wine Festival which was happening around World Showcase. Despite the crowds in the park, everyone seemed to have a good time and I’m already thinking ahead to next year’s walk.

Below is the group photo that we took at the start of the walk:

An annual tradition of mine is going with friends and family to the Festival of Trees, held at the Orlando Museum of Art (OMA). It’s a great start to the holiday season, and there are so many gorgeous trees, wreaths, and gingerbread houses.

The Orlando Museum of Art generally picks a theme to go with other exhibits that they are hosting. This year’s theme was Hip Holiday! which was gave it a early 1960’s feel.

Even though there were hundreds of decorated trees to choose from, I focused more on the amazing tiny ornaments hung from the trees. I hope that you enjoy these collages and check out the Festival of Trees next year at the Orlando Museum of Art!
