Las Vegas PhotoWalk – the Details

Last week I announced that DPS is holding its first ever official Photowalk later this week in Las Vegas.

We’ve had over 60 people register their interest (closer to 70 actually) for this event so far and I am really looking forward to it!

I’ve just emailed details of the event to those who registered but as a few of the emails bounced wanted to put it up on the blog also. If you didn’t previously register your interest but still want to come you’re more than welcome to join us. Just leave a comment below so we know to expect a few more (not that numbers matter too much – Vegas is a big place).

Following are the details of the Photo Walk

Date – Friday 19 September (we know not everyone will be there on the Friday night but it was the only real time available when we surveyed the organizing team).

Time – 6.30pm – 8pm (we’ll be leaving on time so get there a few minutes early – details below on what to do if you’re late).

Place – Caesars Palace Hotel – Caesars Palace Dr Las Vegas – for those of you attending Blog World Expo this is about 1.8 miles from the convention centre – a reasonably quick cab ride.

We’ll be meeting at Caesars and then walking south along the strip – as far as we can go in the time.

Exactly where to meet – outside Caesars near the Valet parking area there are three large Fountains/Water features. We’ll be meeting there. Look for a bunch of people who look like bloggers with cameras :-)

Here’s the map on Google Maps

Walk Leader – Photographer Kris Krug from Static Photography will be leading us on the walk. He’ll give us some good tips and direction along the way.

What to Bring – Walking shoes, a drink (it’s Hot in Vegas) and most of all your camera and any lenses/accessories that you want to play with. Keep in mind that we’ll be out around dusk (should be a nice time to shoot).

What we’ll do – this will partly depend upon how many of us there are and where Kris leads us but we’ll most likely be sticking to the Strip (heading south) and might even head to one of the Casinos (if a group of 60 photographers doesn’t freak them out too much).

This will be a fairly informal walk. While Kris is ‘leading’ the idea isn’t for it to be a teaching session – rather a time of connecting, sharing ideas, getting to know one another and having some fun with one another and our cameras.

At 8pm some of the group may continue on together – it’ll be up to the general group consensus at this point.

If you’re late – if you are running late you can try to catch up with us on the walk. We’ll be moving south down the strip. We’ll attempt to give updates on Twitter as to our location – follow @digitalps (DPS’s twitter account) and I’ll have someone login and update every now and again.

I’m looking forward to connecting with you at on Friday night! I’d love to say hi to you so if you see a jet lagged Aussie with no hair and glasses, please do come say hi!

If you’re going to share your photos on Flickr we’ll have everyone Tag their images with DPSVegas so we can all see the shots.

    Las Vegas is great for photos, especially at night. This is a photo I took there last year, outside Caesar’s Palace coincidentally!

    I will be out of town this weekend, however I would suggest popping into the Bellagio (after checking out the fountain show) to see the autumn display in the Conservatory. Both the fountains and conservatory were made for photographers.

    Hint: if you like the conservatory display, come back Saturday morning at 6am to get photos with no people around.
