This year of 2015 The Bahamian Photographer, Rashad Penn will be hosting the
500px worldwide photo walk here in Nassau the Bahamas.

I look forward to meeting persons from all walks of life that love photography. This will be a unique photo walk not just for professionals but for everyone of all ages. No need for professional cameras just bring what you have. Point and shoot, mobile phone or your dslr camera. The idea is to have fun, meet new people and learn history and photography along the way. I will personally be switching between my dslr and my mobile phone camera.  I and other photographers are there to help you along this fun walk.
