Earlier this month Kial James, of Nevada City Scenics, and I kicked off our 2020 Nevada City photo walk series. We started this free meet up collaboration over 5 years ago as a way to connect with other photographers using Instagram through Instameets. Over the years we’ve done photo walks at the South Yuba River, Malakoff Diggins, Riverhill Farm, downtown Nevada City, Inn Town Campground, a local vineyard, Crystal Hermitage Gardens and Hirschman Pond to name a few. The Union recently wrote an article about our series and Kial explained that we aim to make the “photowalks enthralling but also inclusive and accessible to anyone, whether they take photos with a Nikon or an iPhone, are avid hikers or just want to saunter along for some sight-seeing.” The photo walks are free and welcome to anyone to join, regardless of photography ability. It’s a great opportunity to connect with others who also enjoy the art of photography, whether it’s portraits, landscapes or little details. What I love about the slow paced walks is that they give you permission to stop and really appreciate the details around you.
Saturday, April 18th, 6:30-8pm: Crystal Hermitage, tour the 17,000 tulips for an all access photo walk with Kial James, sign up required, limited space available.
