Photowalkers’ Earth Day Exhibition supporting Earth Day 2021

This event is now over. Thank you for your participation!

Members of Taiwan Photowalkers and Taiwan Exchange Photo Club (TEPC) believe that this beautiful planet we live on is in crisis, that sustainability and ecology require urgent action, and that photographers capture and portray both Earth’s beauty and fragility. Moreover, the people of Earth cannot be merely as actors on a stage.

The past year, if nothing else, has shown that each and every person has a significant role to play in creating a sustainable environment for all living creatures that share this ‘blue dot’.

Our exhibition is virtual and highlights the beauty of nature and its vulnerability. We aim to show what we can do to reduce our impact on our fragile planet to ultimately heal Mother Earth. This is our first step. What’s yours?

Welcome!

About Photowalkers

What is Photowalkers?

Photowalkers is a group that encourages you to get out and see Taiwan, take photographs and improve your photography, as well as making new friends who share the same passion. Started in 2014, Billy Stagner intended Photowalkers as a bridge between expat and local photographers in an informal language exchange.

The group has transformed since then into a group of people who share a passion for taking photographs all around Taiwan. You’ll be sure to find something of interest, whether you’re interested in scenery or street photography or pretty flowers during Cherry Blossom season.

How can I get involved?

We’ve organized a wide variety of events, including Guandu Temple and River Walk, Tamsui River and Fisherman’s Wharf, Yehliu Geopark, and Hsinchu City Streets. Trips are set up well in advance for a Saturday or Sunday and are mostly held in the Taipei Metropolitan area, though occasionally we may go further afield.

What do I need?

Photographers come from a variety of backgrounds, but all share an enthusiasm for photography, whether they are novice, hobbyist or professional, all are welcome. So you can bring whatever camera you usually use, whether it’s an ordinary camera, mobile phone, or DSLR.

What should I do when I attend?

You could come without any camera at all! Shoot as many or as few pictures as you would like. Some trips have been followed by social occasions like dinner or drinks; others have resulted in photography exhibitions; and there have even been helpful photography critiques.

“Come in with an open mind and a positive attitude and you’re bound to make friends, learn about photography or help others improve as photographers! You’ll experience cool and interesting places around Taiwan while sharing many perspectives from fellow group members,” said Billy Stagner.

It’s a philosophy we’ve striven to realize in the Photowalkers. We hope you’ll agree! For more information about Photowalkers, check out the Facebook Group.
