Join me, Pittsburgh photographer Don Orkoskey for the best free urban wildlife walk on Nov. 19th in Schenley Plaza! Do you enjoy taking pictures? Do you want to learn more about nature, wildlife, or even street photography? Then don't miss this great event!
When: Nov. 19th from 9:30 am to 11:30 am
Where: We'll meet at near the corner of Forbes and Bigelow Blvd. near the food stands. See my about page to get an idea of what I look like then look for me.
Additional Info: At 9:30 we'll begin to explore the area near the lawn and I'll talk about how to find wildlife even in busy urban settings like Schenley Plaza. We'll photograph everything from birds, squirrels, and street scenes as we find them.
Cost: $0.00, this is a FREE event. Please note: if you see anyone talking about buying their "extra ticket" from them or say that they're selling a ticket they're scammers. You'd think they wouldn't try that with free events but they're relentless and bold.
Free Photography Walks
Every month I lead free photography walks in Pittsburgh. Usually these are held in Frick Park and they focus on nature photography, macro, wildlife, or general photography skill building.
At the suggestion of my friend and fellow Pittsburgh photographer Peter Theis I've elected to add in some urban elements. Depending on the interest of those who show up we can also do some street photography during this walk.
What is urban wildlife? It's wild animals who live in our urban environments. Small parks like Schenley Plaza are teaming with all sorts of life beyond the college students from Pitt and CMU that frequent the area. From insects to birds, fungus to flowers, nature is all around us. The urban wildlife we'll encounter on Nov. 19th probably won't include many flowers or fungus given the time of year and Pittsburgh's climate but we will see birds, small mammals, and possibly more.
