Last week marked a special occasion in the life of Digital Photography School – a group of 70 of us met up in person for the first time for the first ever DPS photowalk!

While it only lasted a hour and a half it was a fun evening as we wandered down the Strip from Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Much of the walk centered around the water show at the Bellagio but there was plenty of other things to see and shoot over the evening.

You can see shots from the night that have been uploaded to Flickr with the tag dpsvegas here (if you came and have not uploaded yours yet don’t forget to tag them) – there are close to 500 so far. I’ve included a few here in this post.

I wanted to also give a special thank you to Jared from Pro Photo Rental who not only flew into Vegas for the walk but who brought a case full of wonderful lenses for many of those on the walk to try out. I don’t know how much those lenses were worth collectively but do appreciate his generosity in allowing a group of strangers to ‘play’ with his gear like that.

Where will the next DPS Photowalk be?
This is a question I’ve had a few times since Vegas. I’m not sure what the answer is but do want to throw it open for people to organize their own. If you want to do one the best way to gather others in your area is to join our forum and post a suggested time and place for your meetup. At the very least I’d like to do another one in Vegas next year at Blog World Expo and possibly one in Austin earlier in the year at the South by South West festival.
