The Photo Walk

Schedule & Registration Below

Our booth will be located west of Hart Plaza. Photowalks have been planned around events that are expected to have fewer crowds, but still allow for killer photos! The walk will commence 30-50 minutes before the chosen race event to allow time for walking and addressing any questions. We aim to assist you in capturing great photos by providing guidance and tips before the event. We will also be accessible to address any questions during and after the race. If you plan to borrow equipment, kindly arrive 15 minutes earlier than the photowalk's scheduled start time.

Gear Loan

If you're planning on attending the event and need equipment, contact the store directly to discuss the available options and reserve the necessary gear. To start the process, send an email to inquire about equipment for the event. By doing so, one of our team experts will call you, to provide personalized recommendations and ensure that the equipment is available on the day of the event.


Please include in your email: your name and phone number, the brand of camera you currently shoot and if there is something specific you're interested in trying or if you would like recommendations.

If you intend to borrow equipment, please arrive 15 minutes prior to the photowalk. To ensure the rented gear's returned, we'll keep your driver's license until the end of the photowalk and the gear's return.

Our First Photowalk at a Grand Prix

We are excited to announce that this will be our first time hosting a photowalk at this event. As a result, we kindly ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate unfamiliar territory.

Please note that this year's event is in a new location, and it may take some time to find the ideal spot for photography. The Detroit Grand Prix is a crowded event, and while we will do our best to secure a location where the cars are visible, we cannot guarantee that each photowalk will have access to a prime spot. We are at the mercy of the crowd.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to make this event a success. We are confident that with your help, we can capture some amazing photographs and create a memorable experience. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you at the Detroit Grand Prix photowalk.

Event Costs

There will be a $30 fee to attend the event. This fee helps cover a portion of our booth rental and ensures that people who register actually show up, as there are limited spots available.

Please note that we can only host 10-12 people per walk (depending on the walk), so it is important to secure your spot as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we believe that the fee is necessary to provide you with the best experience possible.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you at the event!
