For over a century, Fair Park has been an architectural gem and an important part of Dallas, and Texas, history. October’s photo walk will provide an informed look at some of the striking buildings and details that give Fair Park its unique flair while also capturing the hustle and bustle of the annual Texas State Fair!
Grab your camera and take part in DCP’s monthly photo walk! We invite you to hang out with fellow photographers, and trade tips, tricks, and tales as you photograph your way around the DFW metroplex’s most unique locations. All ages, skill levels, and camera types are welcome to participate.
This two hour, in-person walk will blend both instructor lead touring and independent exploration of the historic Fair Park. Our DCP instructor will be there to answer questions, offer suggestions, and give feedback on photos. A few days after the photo walk our instructor will host an online photo review, providing supportive group feedback and insight into your own and others’ photography.
