Explore the vibrant neighborhood of Deep Ellum on this instructor-led photo walk.
Upcoming Photo Walk

No photo walks currently scheduled

With its colorful murals and deep roots in the history of Dallas, Deep Ellum is such a distinct part of the metroplex. Its lively shops and bars, situated in historic brick warehouses, adds a funk to the Dallas downtown area.

Our next photo walk will be in this vibrant neighborhood. Our instructor will be there to answer questions, offer suggestions, and give some feedback on your photos. After the photo walk, attendees will be able to walk around Deep Ellum independently.

A few days before the photo walk we’ll meet online for a brief Zoom session to go over logistics and where to meet up. Your instructor will give you some ideas of what to expect and photography tips to get you ready.

Any camera will do – smartphone, DSLR, mirrorless, film.

Please bring a mask for instances when you are near your fellow photographers.
