October 13th, 2012 is when Scott Kelby's 5th annual worldwide photo walk will be held. Mr. Kelby has put the worldwide web to excellent use by working hard to make this event a truly global event.
Photographers in South Korea are getting involved in this event, too. According to the Scott Kelby website, there are expected to be three different photo walks in South Korea on Saturday, October 13th. All three walks will be led by foreign residents in South Korea. Though I conducted a search using the Korean language, no results appeared that would indicate any photo walks being led by Korean citizens at this time. If any of my readers know differently, please contact me so that I can spread the word.
First, Ilze Louw is leading a walk in Seoul. See some of here photography on her photo blog here. The information Ilze provides on her photo walk page states that her walk will begin at 9:45 a.m. in 탑골공원. Those who wish to join Ilze Louw's photo walk, and to learn more details about it, can visit her walk page here.
Second, Jason Teale is leading his photo walk in Ulsan. This past August 2012, I featured Jason and his amazing work in an article on this blog that can be read here. Those who wish to participate in Jason's walk can sign-up on his walk page here.
Third, Joe Wabe is leading his first photo walk in Gwangju-si, Jeollanam-do, South Korea. He invited me to be a jurist at his event. Joe Wabe is the founder of Art Elemento, which is an art magazine based in Gwangju. His photography is very well done. In fact, just yesterday afternoon I sat with Joe, his delightful and talented daughter, and another friend at his booth at the art auction held on the art walk in Gwangju where he sold 20 of his photographs. Those who wish to participate in Joe's photo walk can learn more information here.
