Local Kelby Walk Winning Photo Selected

On Saturday, July 18th, over 32,000 amateur and professional photographers in 900 cities all around the world participated in the Second Annual Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk. This photo walk was a social photography event where photographers gathered on this one chosen day at a specific time in a pre-determined site in their town or city across the United States and throughout the world, to walk around, shoot photos, and capture images that are unique to their part of the world. Each city’s photo walk was limited to 50 participants, who are allowed to submit two of their best images shot on that day for judging by their individual city’s Photo Walk leader. The leader and organizer of the Vero Beach Photo Walk was professional photographer J. Scott Kelly, owner of Island Images Professional Photography Studio, Inc., founder of Adventure Photography and Photo Walks of Vero Beach, and co-owner and photography director of Southeast Gallery of Photographic Art, whose own images, according to the event rules, were not eligible for consideration in the worldwide competition.

"Buena VIsta" by Tara Gilligan

Fifty photographers from our area converged along Ocean Drive in Vero Beach at sunrise on that day to capture amazing images of our little slice of paradise. It’s hard to go wrong with such beautiful scenery as your subject, which only makes the selection process that much harder – both for the photographer selecting their favorite two images and for the city’s Photo Walk leader, who has the awesome responsibility of having to choose only one winning photograph to submit to the Kelby Media Group for judging at the worldwide level.

Twenty-nine spectacular images were submitted by our Vero Beach Photo Walk participants for a chance to advance to the worldwide contest. Take a look at our local images by visiting The winning image chosen to represent Vero Beach was a photograph of the sunrise framed by a doorway, entitled “Buena Vista” by Tara Gilligan.
