Photo Walk gets snapping Saturday in Hudson
Open to shutterbugs of all abilities
For the fourth year in a row, a photography event bringing together shutterbugs of abilities will take place Saturday in Hudson. Jennifer Frezza, a professional photographer from Saint-Lazare, will again lead this year’s edition of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk, a free event open to photographers of all abilities.
To date, some 29,194 registered walkers will participate in 1,333 photo walks taking place this year across the globe.
A photo walk is a chance for photographers of all ages and abilities to gather for a sort of photography jam session while on a nature walk. It’s open to everyone from budding photographers with disposable cameras, to professionals with top-of-the-line equipment.
“People just walk together and take pictures of anything that catches their attention,” Frezza explained.
She has planned this year’s rout to include a walk through the Sandy Beach Nature Park along the Lake of Two Mountains. The nature part of the walk will end near the Hudson Yacht Club. Participants will then stroll through downtown Hudson to capture images there. A post walk meeting will take place at Cunningham’s Pub, located at 84, rue Cameron in Hudson.
Following the walk, participants will upload their favourite photo - edited or asis - onto the Photo Walk website where the best of the group’s shots will be chosen.
The Hudson photo walk will take place Oct. 13 from 8:45 a.m. to noon. Walkers, who are reminded to dress for the weather, will meet in the parking lot of the Hudson Community Centre, located at 394, rue Main. The event is free for adults and kids 10-years-old or up, though walkers must register by going to: www.kazaphotography.com or www.worldwidephotowalk.com and going to the Hudson location.
