Moscow Photo Walks


If you saw the last issue of Moscow Expat Life, you saw that Moscow Photo Walks is a club for people who love to travel, meet and socialise with all types of people who also have some type of interest in photography. Well this summer the adventure loving people of our club teamed up with Olga Slovnikova and traveled to Yaroslavl, Uglich and Mushkin. Then later we gathered in St. Petersburg for a weekend full of sightseeing and socializing.

Our excursions to these golden ring cities gave us the opportunity to photograph some beautiful 19th century cathedrals and monasteries, plus enjoy the landscapes along the rivers Volga and Neva. We took boat tours, explored museums and viewed monuments that helped us understand the historical importance of these wonderful cities.

You don’t need to be an experienced photographer to join us during any of our excursions. In fact, I can help you learn the art of photography. During our weekly walks, I give helpful hints for improving your photographs and I teach a free class at ЦУН Библиотека им. Н.А. Некрасова.

Therefore, if you would like to travel with us or become a better photographer, you can find out about our future excursions and classes by going to our Facebook page. In addition to the golden ring city trips, we have weekly photo walks in Moscow and everyone is invited to join in on the fun.


Photo Contest

In the winter after a fresh snow, Moscow becomes even more beautiful and introduces us to a plethora of new ways to entertain ourselves but all of this fun and beautiful landscape will go to waste if you do not share it with others. Therefore, this winter we are holding a contest to see all the fun experiences you have and the beautiful sights you see. Show us your awesome winter landscape, wildlife & travel photos for your chance to win a few prizes and get your photo published in the Moscow Expat Life magazine.

The photos must be of you or your friends enjoying winter activities in the Moscow Region. Please submit the photos by emailing them to [email protected] or using the #moscowphotowalks for Instagram. All submitted photos will be displayed on the Moscow Photo Walks Instagram and Facebook account pages whether they are submitted by either email or Instagram. For more information, please contact David Mercer at [email protected]. The deadline of this contest is Saturday, 19 March 2016.
