Photo Walk: Bridges of Trinity River

Practice your photography with an instructor-guided location shoot along the bridges of the Trinity River.
Upcoming Photo Walk

No photo walks scheduled at this time

If you live in Dallas you’ve driven over them, admired the new ones and have probably been stuck in traffic on one at some point. Join a group of your fellow photographers for a photo walk under several of the Trinity River bridges that will add to your collection of “good shots.”

The day of the photo walk we’ll gather at the designated meeting point to start our walk under several of Dallas’ most interesting bridges. We’ll spend two hours walking, talking and shooting photos along the trail. It’s an easy hike, full of surprising angles and compositions. Even if you’ve been on the Trinity Skyline Trail before, doing it with a group of photographers can be a creative boost as you look for interesting images and watch what other people see and shoot.

We will have an online image review a few days after to show off the photos you captured during the walk. We’ll meet online via Zoom to look at our images and get supportive feedback from the group. Shooting and reviewing as a group offers insights into your own and others’ photography.
