What is a Walkabout?

Walkabouts offer you the opportunity to get out and about with your camera, meet up with your local photographic community and learn a few new skills whilst you’re at it. Every month, the Wex team will be at a new venue with a different lead photographer, focusing on a different subject with a unique set of challenges. Walkabouts are all about enjoying and developing your photographic hobby in a relaxed, informal environment.

Unlike our photography workshops, Wex Walkabouts are completely informal, have no minimum group size and are not dependent on your ability or gear – wherever possible, we will bring along a range of kit you can borrow. All you need is your DSLR or compact system camera and some clothing suitable for the great outdoors. There are no specific steps or learning outcomes; the walkabouts will give you the challenge of a new environment and a new subject, all supported by an experienced pro photographer.

Regardless of your skill level or kit, Wex Walkabouts are for you – whether you want to try something new or just meet other likeminded enthusiasts!

In 2018 a minimum of £5 from every ticket will be donated to our chosen charity of the year. This ticket price also covers any entry fees for the sites we visit as part of our Walkabouts. If you’d like to know more about this or our chosen charity, please don’t hesitate to email events@wex.co.uk
