Join us for a unique take on the popular 'photo walk' experience. This is a social photography event where lo-fi shooters will be touring the exchange district while photographing with toy cameras. We will seek to create a unique perspective on this city using the plastic lenses, minimal controls and film based images that these cameras are so well known for, and at the same time mingle and have fun with other photographers. If you've never shot with a toy camera before, now's your opportunity!
Duncan McNairnay has been in love with film for five years. He enjoys street photography, the snapshot, and unusual results. He is also an instructor at PrairieView School of Photography and has exhibited works in various group shows within Winnipeg.
