It’s a social photography event where photographers get together, usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town, to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers.

It is usually a communal activity organised by camera clubs, online forums or commercial organisations. It is often done as a method to practice and improve one’s own photography skills rather than a with specific focus on documentary photography.

While not exclusive to digital photography, in practice digital photography makes photowalking more realistic as a hobby due to its experimental nature, the number of pictures typically taken in the process, and the possibility of post-processing afterward.

While related to street photography, photowalking is differentiated by the main impetus being to photograph things of interest rather than people specifically. Photowalking is also a form of exercise as it can take the photographer over the course of several miles as they wander a particular site or neighborhood.

Photowalking is also often associated with online photo sharing.
