What you'll do

Are you ready to take the 1st ever Photowalk Challenge here in Cologne?

It will provoke your problem solving and photo skills with a rush of Escape Rooms, but you have the whole city as your playground. You only need your DSLR or smartphone.

We will be meeting near Cologne Dom. We will have a short introduction (15 mins max) to each other and the other participants (if there are), give the rules and explain how the game works. I would like to hear about your experiences with photography and how comfortable are you using your camera. If you can manage or have problems using it. I will talk about basic photography 101 and why it is important. Then from there, we will start our Photowalk Challenge.

It is a walking tour with photo challenges (Photowalk Challenge). It is a 90-minute game where you are given 3 Challenge Cards at every point and you need to do at least one of the given cards to go to the next point. The cards have various difficulties and scores. The scores determine your freebies/prizes after the completion of the game. It will be also used to rank against other players and post the leaderboard here every month.

Throughout the activity, we will see different spots around Cologne. I will give some tidbits, facts, and advice. You will venture into your skills, learn, & have some fun. Lastly, you will leave smiling with great photos to hang on your walls.

You can call me Geo, a freelance photographer based in Cologne, Germany from San Francisco, California. I got a strong connection here in Cologne like what I felt the first time when I was in San Francisco. I said " I wanna live here" and now, I am here since Dec 2017. The city is very artsy, full of history, the people appreciate creativity, arts, and diversity.

I received my Masters of Fine Art in Photography in San Francisco. I have worked with different companies like Warner Bros. Entertainment, Sony Pictures, ZDF, and small businesses in the US and Europe. I also have various fine art series that exhibited in group shows and events. I am one of the recipients of the Top 100 Photography Award that was held in Photokina 2018 held in Germany.

I am a workaholic, travel aficionado, and a heavy eater.
