Enjoy a photography walk and flex your picture-taking skills or be a model while meeting others. You will be taken on a photography adventure in the concrete jungle. Maybe you will discover a spot in the city that you never noticed before or maybe you will get your creative juices flowing and walk away with that money shot. Nobody knows and that is part of the adventure.

Please note that we will follow strict COVID 19 protocols for this event.
