During August and September of 2015 we traveled from New York to Los Angeles on a coach bus stopping in 13 cities across the USA. We held huge Photo Walks with hundreds of people in each location. What is a Photo Walk? Photo Walks are tremendously fun (and free!) events for the whole family! Everyone is welcome…from beginners to advanced photographers, from mobile phones to giant chunky DSLR.

What happened at each city?

We all met at a certain location, I jumped atop our party bus and made a quick speech like Mussolini, and then we spent about 2 hours walking through the streets together, taking photos all the way.

View highlights from each city.
