WE WANT YOU!
As Local Guides we rely on images in Maps every day. When we’re looking for a place, or trying to find out what it looks like inside or perhaps the quality of the meals served or products sold.
When I look on Maps I often see some absolutely amazing images, but I also see a lot of mediocre and even poor images which reflects poorly on Local Guides.
Organiser Paul Pavlinovich
the 36 walk mission is to help people improve their own photography
Photography has become too easy. Most of us have a camera in our pocket and we’ve lost the need to care because making an image costs us nothing.
By constraining ourselves we must take more care with every image because it has to count. This leads to Consider. Compose. Click.
Why 36? In its heyday the most popular film came in 36 shot canisters. Each shot cost real money to develop. There was constraint. For most people this meant quality.
Each year, the 36 walk has grown because Local Guides care about quality and care about their contributions to Maps.
join the mission: lead a walk
Information is provided to make it easy to run a walk. Simply register your 36 Walk Meetup called "36 Walk place" e.g. 36 Walk Melbourne-AU to run March 23rd and post a link to your walk here so I can include it on the MyMap. Information packs are available in English Dutch Hindi Italian, Russian and Spanish. Read the information pack and if you have any questions ask them on this post. Feel free to use text from the information packs on your post.
join the mission: join a walk, or go solo
After the leaders join the mission the walks will be advertised. Join one of these or go solo. It’s up to you.
