The Brisbane Photowalk is an event for photographers. Photographers walk the streets/parks photographing models, creating stunning images while meeting amazing creatives and having a lot of fun (it’s a “walking” event so it also helps you stay fit!)
The team making these events possible.
Some of Our Models
We only use experienced professional models and they all go through special photowalk training.
New faces are introduced every event!
A great learning & networking opportunity
The Brisbane Photowalk was planned in a way so we can all learn from each other while working with professional models in a very structured yet fun and not strict environment.
We have very few rules so you are free to be creative.
How we roll
Our event lasts for 2-3.5 hours and we usually finish at a pub so everyone can exchange experiences and contacts!
Before the Event
We book our models as we go. For every six sold tickets, a new model is booked until we have all our six models. They are all professional experienced models.
The week before our event, emails and text messages are sent out to confirm times and locations.
You’ll get invited to join our community where attendees share their photos from the event, ask questions and stay up to date.
We have great sponsors for our events and usually great special gifts too!
We keep an eye on the weather. This is an outdoors event so if we believe the weather will be a problem, we’ll postpone to a later date.
During the Event
A few minutes before we start, a little introduction about the event will happen.
Lead photographer prepares the models for the start of the walk.
All attendees are given the green light to start walking and shooting. We don’t divide people in groups but let that happen organically.
Halfway through the walk we take a break so models can change outfits and attendees can go to the bathroom, get some coffee or really just take a break (except for night flash photowalk).
The walk (continuation)
We continue to walk to our final locations.
We usually finish the walk at a pub. Everyone is welcome to join us and also invite other people to come over and do some networking.
After the Event
Information & Development
We will send all attendees information about the models, anything specific about the gift bags, etc. Since this is not a workshop, we will send out information about how to develop your photography skills, like classes by our team or others we can vouch for.
Make sure you share your work in our Community and on Instagram (using the hashtag #bcpw2019) so we can all see what was created on the day!
Enjoy Your New Network
You have now met new creatives so make sure you make the most out of your new connections. We really want everyone to get great shots but also meet new great people.

“A great afternoon with talented models and fellow photographers with the opportunity to enjoy a beer and a chat afterwards. Bruno’s photowalks are an ideal way to learn and practice how to work with models, and if you have any questions there are always other professionals on hand who are happy to give advice. If you happen to be a seasoned shooter, then you will more than enjoy the banter, networking and amazing models posing along the way.”
Craig Stampfli – Photographer
“The Bruno photowalk really surprised me in that not only was I able to engage and share ideas with the other photographers, but I managed to capture some great photos too. The models are always professional and eye catching. Can’t wait for the next one.”
Michael Arenson – Photographer
“I am always delighted to model at Bruno’s photo walks. They are so well organised every time. I always enjoy networking with photographers and models because he sets a high standard of professionalism which always makes myself and others around me feel comfortable. That’s how we get such great shots.”
Annaliese – Model
“The true test of a great photowalk or meetup is not just the great photos you take but also the less than great shots that you have a lot of fun taking. Bruno’s photowalks are a fantastic, fun and safe environment for photographers of all skill levels to come together, take some shots and hopefully capture “the one great shot”.”
Will Shepley – Photographer
“I was delighted to participate in a photoshoot with Bruno, recently.
This was my first ever model shoot and, as an amateur photographer, trying to master a complex Canon 5D, I was out of my comfort and skill zone.
It was such an awesome experience to participate with the models, and have the support of Bruno’s extensive experience.
This shoot demonstrated Bruno’s capacity to deal with a covert set of photographers displaying different skills set. My confidence in my ignorance, soon established a knowledge base, which grew with Bruno’s mentoring.
Whilst still a budding amateur, this photo shoot built skills, knowledge and awareness, which fast tracked my camera operation and provided a benchmark of excellence, which Bruno set.”
“Bruno is a very charismatic Brazilian with an unbridled flair for creativity. He brings life to the streets of Brisbane with his photowalks. His passions go beyond just pressing a button on a camera.”
“I first met Bruno a few years ago through a mutual friend. I had an interest in photographing Cosplayers, and was looking to improve my photography skills. One of the cosplayers I had regularly photographed, Annaliese, posted about some Photowalks that Bruno was hosting, and so I decided to give one a try, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I never knew photography could be so much fun, and in a short time I have massively improved my photography skills. Bruno’s photowalks really are one of the best ways to get better rapidly, there are so many people there willing to guide you and provide assistance, including Bruno himself. Since then, I have also gotten my wife into photography and she also enjoys the photowalks too.
I recommend anyone, beginner or professional, to at least try a photowalk with Bruno. You will have an amazing time, make some great friends, and walk away with a lot of stunning photos too!”
