Much thanks to the photo-crew in Brugge for a particularly nice +Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk

It was my fourth hosting, they've all been awesome but today it really rolled nice, surprises abound like the mayor stopping for a photo op and my bronchitis not totally messing me over. #felttheforce

So with the 8th annual‬ +Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk  coming up October 3rd, I received a mail from a friend that had joined 2 walks that I had hosted in Brugge, asking for any advice now that he's leading this years' Memphis leg.

Thought I'd share my reply publicly, hope it helps any other leaders on this very fun day out of photo fun:

- Remember it's (supposed to be) fun at the outset, take it seriously but only towards having a laugh.
- Communicate with your walkers, either beforehand or on the day itself.
- It's more a day for social photo walking, not just getting portfolio shots.
- Plan out a route that has both visual interest and some flexibility. Duh.
- Suggest photos/angles/ideas, part of where I find the tablets so handy.
- Don't just monologue, the group is there to participate (and have fun).
- At least one toilet break, preferably at a drinks/snacks stop.
- People like snacks (and it's fuel for the walk ahead), we do muffins and no complaints so far.
- Don't be afraid to mention you buddy Andy's photo tour in Brugge that inspired you to lead. ;)
- Have fun!!! I mentioned it already but always worth repeating.

Most importantly: Don't lead the walk as anyone but yourself, inspiration from others is good but most important is your own voice/vibe/energy.

Thanks to +Scott Kelby  & +RC Concepcion  and all the +KelbyOne crew for organising this yearly bash, also to Andre for throwing out the question!
