Fast Photos at Pearl's Fen

Whether you are a seasoned photographer or a camera phone aficionado , we invite you to join GCPT for the first ever Fast Photos hikes.

Guests will meet up at the same location each season to enjoy a hike all while snagging quick photos along the way. But no stalling, the fun part is trying to be in the moment and capturing images as we move along the path. The best part would be at the end of the series to see all the photos from each season!

If you would like to collaborate with any of the other photographers, or share images with GCPT- we can create a wonderful photo collage for all the participants to use.

This could be a great way to experience a park in all four seasons, network with other enthusiasts and get to experiment with your camera, all while getting your steps in!

Watching nature change as the seasons pass through your images will be a real treasure in itself.

Each meet up will take place at Pearl's Fen in Fairborn the hour prior to sunset. This location has both a natural trail and a boardwalk that will be used during the hike.

Your registration will include the full list of dates, times and more information needed to get the best from the program.

Happy Hiking!
