Announcing Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk 12th Anniversary Date!

Scott Kelby announces the official date of his 12th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk ® , the world’s

largest Photo Walk. The event is happening October 5, 2019 in thousands of cities all over the


The Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk, dubbed the world’s largest global and social

photography event, has grown immensely in size and popularity since the inaugural walk in

2007. Last year, more than 24,000 photographers of all walks of life and skill level converged to

explore their corners of the world through photography and social community.

The concept of a Photo Walk is simple. Photo Walks are created by Walk Leaders in cities all

over the world. Walkers meet up at a pre-designated location to spend a few hours socializing,

capturing images, and sharing with like-minded people. At the end of the Photo Walk, most

groups convene at local restaurants or taverns to share their images and experiences over food.

In addition to the event, photo walkers will be able to upload their favorite picture to our popular

Photo Walk contest for a chance to win prizes like a DSLR, gift cards, apps, and camera bags.

We will also name a Grand Prize winner and 10 finalists to be selected by Scott Kelby himself!

Every year, we encourage every photo walker to help support the initiative to “Walk with a

Purpose” by donating to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya!

The event is free, but pre-registration is required. Register at , locate

your city, and complete the free sign up form.

Additionally, participants can connect socially before, during and after the event using the

hashtag #WWPW2019 hashtag on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

About 7 years ago, I wanted to participate while I was in Afghanistan, but I did not think it would be “easy” to lead a walk in the middle of a war zone. This year I will be leading a group of 50 photographers on a walk in historic Ybor City located in Tampa, FL. CLICK HERE to register


Leighton DaCosta

Hello, I'm Leighton and I help people around the world tell their story. Let me introduce myself. Whether it's for online dating, or a professional profile, it always seems that the "About Me" section is always the hardest to write. Not because you have nothing to say about yourself, but because you want to be sincere, genuine, interesting, and brief all at the same time. I have never been a fan of writing about me in the third person, like: "Leighton DaCosta, was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and moved to Brooklyn, NY at an early age when his parents wanted to form a new life for themselves and their children. In the third grade, the family moved to Orlando, Fl, where Leighton considers his home town. After spending 3 tours in the Navy, he settled in Jacksonville, and now Miramar, Florida, where he now calls home. Today, still wanted by many, he does work as a fashion and wedding photographer. If you have a wedding(or photo shoot)... if no one else can help... and if you can find him... maybe you can hire... ok.. this is not The A- Team." But you see what I mean? What do you know about me? How can we connect? Did you know that my FAVORITE food is Pizza and Sushi? Or that my favorite color is Purple? When I go to the wine bars, I usually order Mimosas, because even the cheapest champagne tastes great with some good ole OJ. When I travel, I like staying in nice hotels. Not because of the name, (even though I AM partial to Hyatt) but because of the bathrooms. One of my favorite hotels is the Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. Small rooms, but AWESOME bathrooms. I LOVE TO EAT, and eating as much as I have, has led me to be about 100 pounds more than I was in High School... Yeah there is some muscle there, but if it was all muscle, I'm sorry folks, I wouldn't be taking photos, I would be retiring from the NFL. If you want to see some of my favorite dishes, follow me on Instagram. Because of that, I find myself now in the gym more than ever. Trying to stay fit and alive... I workout, so I can EAT! Well that's enough for now, if you want to know more about me, follow my blog. Better yet, I want to find out more about YOU. So let's talk!
