Inman News columnist and avid photographer Teresa Boardman will lead a photo walk at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5, in San Francisco for attendees of the Inman News Real Estate Connect conference, which runs from Aug. 5-7.
The photo walk is "a chance for people to grab their cameras, see some sites in beautiful San Francisco, go for a walk, and grab a bite to eat," says Boardman, who has a collection of her photos online at Flickr.com, a photo-sharing site.
To join the photo walk, meet in the lobby at the Palace Hotel, the site of the Real Estate Connect conference, at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 5. Participants will walk to San Francisco’s Chinatown, taking pictures along the way.
Boardman says any photo-taking device will do, whether it’s your "phone, a disposable camera, any point-and-shoot or your $5,000 DSLR — it makes no difference." She also recommends wearing a comfortable pair of shoes.
"The idea is to see the sites, have a good time, have photos to share with friends or to put on Flickr, and maybe pick up a photography tip or two. I don’t want anyone to think this is only for photographers — it really isn’t. It is social," she added.
All Real Estate Connect attendees — are invited to post their photo walk photos and conference-related photos to the "Inman Real Estate Connect" Flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/inmanconnect/.
