Photo Walk: Porsche Club Car Meet
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 and points of interest. All ages, skill levels, and camera types are welcome to participate.
Presented by our regional Porsche Club of America (PCA) members, this two-hour walk will blend instructor-led touring and independent exploration of the April Mavs & Mochas car meet at Southlake Town Square featuring the Porsche “356” model from the ’50s and ’60s.
Mavs & Mochas is PCA’s Cars and Coffee event for Porsche owners. Each month they feature a different Porsche model and host a car show to make each event unique, and are typically on the 2nd Saturday of each month throughout Dallas/Fort Worth. You do not need to be a PCA member to attend. Mavs & Mochas is a great place to meet other club members and see a wide variety of Porsche models. Everything from the classics to the exotics show up regularly.
Our DCP instructor will be there to answer questions, offer suggestions, and give feedback on photos. Our instructor will host an online photo review a few days after the photo walk, providing supportive group feedback and insight into your own and others’ photography.
