Photographers prepare for Worldwide Photo Walk

Scott Kelby announced the official date of his highly anticipated 9th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk, the world’s largest photo walk, Saturday, Oct. 1 in thousands of cities all over the world, including Natchitoches. This is the third year of participation for Natchitoches photographers and enthusiasts.

The Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk, dubbed the world’s largest global and social photography event, has grown immensely in size and popularity since the inaugural walk in 2007. Last year, over 25,000 photographers of all walks of life and skill level converged to explore their corners of the world through photography and social community.

The concept of a Photo Walk is simple. Photo Walks are created by Walk Leaders in cities all over the world. Walkers meet up at a pre-designated location – downtown areas, zoos, business parks, you name it! – to spend a few hours socializing, capturing images and sharing with like-minded people. At the end of the photo walk, most groups convene at local restaurants or taverns to share their images and experiences over food. Natchitoches walkers will meet at 8 a.m. near the fountain in front of the Natchitoches Main Street office, near the La Sports Hall of Fame. The walk will end near a local cafe for fun and refreshments.

In addition to the event, photo walkers will be able to upload their favorite picture to our popular Photo Walk contest for a chance to win a 1-year membership to, a DSLR, gift cards, apps, camera bags and more. We will also name a Grand Prize winner and 10 finalists to be selected by Scott Kelby himself!

The event is free, but pre-registration is required. Register at, locate Natchitoches and complete the free sign up form.

  1. Feel happy to know this event first time. In my town I think there is nobody to organize. Next time if I know in advance I am interested to participate.
