Solstice Photowalk

Event Details

It’s time for our first in person gathering in almost a year and a half! Join Wasatch Camera Club as we meet at Essentials Photo Supply in Salt Lake City and then go on a photowalk-together! What better way to celebrate the light of the longest days of the summer solstice!

The meeting place is Essentials Photography in Salt Lake City. The owners will welcome us and give us a chance to see their store. From there, we will go on a photowalk to Liberty Park.

Opportunities abound at Liberty Park for photography. People are out and about; picnicking, exercising, and playing games. There will be ample opportunity for street style, action, bird and dog photography. We will watch for solstice light, patterns, shadows, reflections, birds and story telling moments.

In a couple of weeks after the photowalk, we will convene on Zoom to share what people captured. It’s fascinating how differently we see and what we choose to share. The Zoom meeting will be open to all members of the Camera Club, with photowalk participants sharing and others observing.

ThIngs you should know:
We are limiting this outing to 20 people, with 2 groups and 2 leaders for the photowalk. Registration will be open now until Monday, June 21st at midnight MDT. We will use a lottery to choose participants, and they will be notified by Tuesday, June 22nd, by email. Please do not register if you cannot attend. Registration is for one member only. We don’t want to overcrowd the store or get in each others way while shooting.
We ask that you are considerate of WCC members and the community, and follow local guidelines for COVID safety. At this time, Essentials Photo Supply is asking customers to wear masks and practice social distancing while in their store. Do not attend the photowalk if you are sick or have symptoms of any illness
This is a great setting for traveling light and does not require any special equipment. Bring what you are comfortable shooting.
This event will be held rain or shine.
