Local Scott Kelby Photowalk at “T&D’s Cats of the World” on Sat. Oct 6, 10 am

     Dan Hyde is the  “Walk Leader” for the local Walk that is part of the world-wide Scott Kelby Photowalk contest on Saturday October 6, 2018.  Our local Scott Kelby Photowalk will be concurrent with the Lewisburg Photography Club’s photo tour at T&D’s Cats of the World in Penns Creek, PA.  You can take the Photo Club tour with us and ignore the local Scott Kelby Photowalk contest or you can enter the contest for fun and awards.  The contest is free but you MUST register on the website to win any awards.  For details on the international Scott Kelby Photowalk, see https://worldwidephotowalk.com/
     To register for our Scott Kelby Walk contest, go to

     Or you can find the Walk on the Scott Kelby Photowalk World map by entering the location Penns Creek, PA.
    The Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk, 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, more than 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 winning image of each local Walk contest is displayed on a website for all to see and to be judged for many prizes.  For info on the prizes, see https://worldwidephotowalk.com/prizes/
    The concept of a Photowalk is simple. Photowalks 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. Participants later share their best photos and select a Walk’s winning image.  The Walk’s winning image wins a modest prize and is submitted to the contest at the international level. Last year I won the local Walk and received a copy of one of Scott Kelby’s e-books (worth about $40).  Last year, it was very interesting to view the over 6000 Walk winning images.  They were very high quality and very international!
Photo Tour at T&D’s Cats of the World WildLIfe Refuge
    We have arranged a Lewisburg Photography Club photo tour at T&D’s Cats of the World starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday October 6, 2018.
    For those who have never been to T&D’s Cats of the World, it is a wild animal refuge park in Penns Creek, PA (13 miles from Lewisburg).  For information, visit their website at http://www.tdscats.com/
    When you visit their website, you will notice T&D’s Cats closes to the public in September.  Lewisburg Photo Club member Louise Higgins, who is a long time volunteer at T&D’s Cats, has arranged a special tour for the Photo Club.  Basically, we will have the park to ourselves with no one else in the park to cause distractions.  We are to meet in the T&D’s parking lot at 10 am.  The cost is $10 per person.  Louise will lead our tour and one requirement is that we must stick together as a group.  Since Louise is a photographer and understands that photographers need time to take pictures, she will give us plenty of time for photos.  Louise will explain other rules before we start the tour.  Most are easy for us to follow such as “No running.”
    If you have never been to T&D’s Cats of the World, this is a great chance to visit.  Individuals with you such as family members may join our tour as long as they understand they must follow the rules and pay the $10 fee.
    If you are interested in the photo tour at T&D’s Cats of the World, give me your name, email address, and a phone number where I can reach you in case we must cancel because of terrible weather.
    Louise led this photo tour last year and we had a  great time!
    I hope to see you on the Walk!
