Calling all photographers! It’s photo walk time!

One reason many Detroiters know little about Historic Fort Wayne is lack of information. We, the Oakaloosa team, want to try to fill that void by generating original content which highlights the fort’s best features. Our first attempt is going to be through a photo walk, hosted by us and the good folks of

What is a Photo Walk

To make it easy on ourselves, we’ll take this clip from Scott Kelby:

You take yourself and a camera to a designated meeting place to meet up with other photographers, then venture out into an area and snap away! Walk around taking pictures for a couple of hours, then gather at a restaurant, bar, or other eatery/drinkery, and compare, share, discuss, and have a good time.

Much like Kelby’s worldwide photo walks, we are going to be providing a small prize to the best photo of the walk.
