TimeShooting, An Alternative to Photowalking

Are you interested in Photowalking, but don’t know anyone like Thomas Hawk or Rich Legg to walk with? Consider TimeShooting.

The advantage of this idea is you don’t necessarily have to *be* in a particular place at a particular time – all you have to do is have your camera with you at that time. If you happen to be at your office, click away. At home? Take shots of your kids. On the bus? Take pics of the city streets.

The first TimeShoot was great – the Flickr page received pictures of moose, housecats, indoors, outdoors, lighthouses, beaches, beer, ice, at least one person in a bathtub and shots from four different continents! (via Shawn King)

The next TimeShoot is planned for March 9th at 6pm ET. Head on over to Shawn King’s page on The Digital Camera Conference for more.

UPDATE:  Bryan from the PhotowalkingUtah crowd dropped me a line in response to this post.  Here’s what he has to say:

Ann, Rich and myself have organized a number of photowalks in the SLC area since the first one you linked to and we’ve got lots of new photowalks planned for SLCPhotowalking. But I should let you know that we’ve changed the name of our group to PhotowalkingUtah to reflect the amazing success our group that has been drawing people from all over the Utah area. We’ve also grabbed http://www.photowalkingutah.com/ that currently links back to the Flickr group.

All of you Ute’s have no excuse not to be Photowalking.  Head on over to PhotowalkingUtah to get the details on the next event.

Very interesting concept. I like Photowalking, and I hope to remember the next time for TimeShoot.

You can set up a Google Calendar reminder… :)

Or send me your phone number and I’ll call and remind you… :)

And, if you need a reminder, there’s this helpful web site:


That will automagically give you a call to remind you of the event. It’s free and there’s no signup process!

Or you could just go take pictures. Why do you need to be with all of those people? I find I take my best pictures when I’m alone.

We had a blast again with our latest TimeShoot. Please check out the photos if you get a chance.


The next one will be on April 9th at *3am ET* – gulp…
