Yorktown Photowalk with Scott Kelby

I am SO excited to be a leader for the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk – now in it’s 10th year! This Yorktown sunset photowalk is going to be so much fun!!


Yorktown Photowalk with Scott Kelby leader Heather Hughes Photography, Yorktown photographer and Yorktown photojournalist.

This is an annual event where photographers around the world gather on the same day to explore, photograph, share photos, make new friends, and be a part of a great cause. The Worldwide Photo Walk supports The Springs Of Hope Kenya Orphanage, an organization that feeds, houses, educates and empowers young orphans so that they can grow up to not just survive but succeed.

Each walker who wants to enter the contest submits their single best image from our walk by Monday, Oct. 9, 2017. The winning image from the Yorktown Photowalk with Scott Kelby will receive a copy of Scott Kelby’s The Photoshop CC Book For Digital Photographers e-book, and will be in the running for the Grand Prize! Which is a Canon EOS M5 EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens Kit, B&H gift card, and several other great prizes.

NEW! Youth Photo Contest
This contest is new and specifically designed for walkers 16 years or younger. Each youth walker may submit their best photo (one submission only) taken during the walk. Submissions will be sent to Scott Kelby himself who will review and pick 1 winner of the Youth Photo Contest.

Entry into the walk is on a first come basis, until the 50 spaces are filled. If you need to cancel attending, please let me know so I can find a replacement.

Only three rules:

1. You may only submit one photo
2. Collages aren’t allowed, as they are technically more than one photo
3. Photos must be taken during the walk on 10/7 (not before or after) along the Waterfront

Using editing software (such as Lightroom, Photoshop, Camera Raw, etc) is acceptable.

Where We Will Meet & Details

Everyone will meet and gather under the Coleman Bride on the beach at 4:45pm (323 Water St., Yorktown). We will then walk down Water Street, past the annual Yorktown Wine Festival (over at 6pm) and arrive at the fishing pier around 6pm. The group photo will be taken on the rocks at 6:20. Sunset is at 6:41 so walkers are free to find their spot anywhere along the Yorktown waterfront.

Where The Walk Will End

We will finish the day by gathering at the Riverwalk Restaurant at 7:15pm. Walkers that register by Sept. 7 will have a reservation with the group, walkers that register after Sept. 7 should call ahead and make a reservation for a private table if they wish to join us.

About This Yorktown Photowalk with Scott Kelby

Yorktown has a lot of history and combined with the entertainment and crowd the wine festival usually attracts, there will be plenty of photographic opportunities before the sunset.

After meeting up everyone is free to go off exploring and photographing all that Water St. has to offer (including the beach, wildlife, and festival entertainment). I encourage you to pair up with a buddy and explore!

Water Street is fairly flat, but has cobblestones, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring water, your camera, and whatever equipment you prefer. It does not matter what kind of camera you use, I encourage anyone – no matter their skill level – to come out and have fun with us!
