About the photo walk series
Walks are held about 6-8X per year through summer, fall, winter and spring. During the pandemic registration is required. If you are interested in more information and detailed updates please follow @tdot_shots on Instagram and sign up for the newsletter.
These meet-ups take place in downtown locations or places easily accessible by transit in central Toronto.
Many of our walks coincide with events in Toronto like photo exhibitions or festivals. From spring to fall Toronto has many cool things to do, and some of our walks align with these public events.
We also have favourite walks that are Tdot classics: U of T and Philosopher’s Walk, High Park in Fall, and Business District to the Gooderham Building are a few we love to repeat!
Most of our walks are in spring and fall but we do one June walk before we break for July-August. September brings the “Back to School” walk at U of T. In 2020 we undertook four walks to the beautiful university campus.
Most walks are on Sunday afternoons. Start times may vary but are usually about two hours before sunset to guarantee some nice golden hour glow.
Walks are weather permitting, follow our stories on IG in case of bad weather.
Details for exact time and location of meeting will be confirmed one week before the walk.
Due to the pandemic some of the details above have been adjusted. The walks for 2021 will operate as a “by invitation” event. Registration is done through email and a Google form.

Note: Our walks resumed in September (with social distancing) but because of Covid we are now forced to cancel the remaining walks. These photo walks are guided tour / fundraiser walks with a fee of $5. We will resume our free walks in 2021.
Meeting Times: Usually Sunday afternoons 90 minutes before sunset – read on for dates and details!
