Google+: John Butterill’s Virtual Photo Walks

Google+: John Butterill’s Virtual Photo Walks


John: Freedom for me has always been going
for a walk in the woods, finding the perfect light and getting the shot. I think I started when I was 12 years old,
putting that canoe on my shoulders carrying it down to the lake and going for a paddle. John Butterill as a young photographer,
his epic canoe trip – 1969. That was a long time ago. One day I was out taking pictures and I
thought how cool would it be to attach a phone to your camera and hangout with 5, 10 people,
and they would see exactly what I was seeing through the viewfinder of my camera.
It was pretty amazing. And the next day Corey Fisk came
into the hangout, Corey Fisk: I love photography and I have
been living with MS 10 years, and this is my world. There is nothing more
to my world than that. John: I just said ‘tomorrow I’ll take
you for a walk‘ John: I’m going to walk closer to that
old tree over there Corey: Down a little…little more…right
there. Lovely. John: Look up, look way up. Corey: Oh, I like that a lot. Yeah, macro
that one. John: Got it John: For a few brief minutes, she wasn’t
going to be in that bed. She was going to experience her own momentary escape. She was on a Virtual Photo Walk and we
didn’t even know what one was then. But we were sure doing it. The next day we posted the video. People
saw it and started sharing it…and photographers all over the world jumped on board. Dominic Phillips: So we’re bringing lots of
people around and giving them a Hawaii view here. (Oh, yes we have a sea turtle!) Ugo Cei: Look at this Man in front of camera: we’re in beautiful
Capetown, a couple of buffalo Jared Mecham: This is Utah lake. Ryan Heffernan: I’ll be emailing you
photos soon. John: I never anticipated that so many photographers
would give their time and feel so committed. As a photographer you’re in a special
place taking pictures and now people are with you and for that brief time you are giving
a little bit of freedom. Lebo: I’m just going to sneak around here John: It’s a very rewarding thing. Lebo: Can you guys see what I’m seeing
at the moment?

  1. Freedom for me is the NSA and Google collaborating to build a surveillance state. Google Fiber + NSA + Provo, Utah = pure touchy feely goodnes!

  2. Heres a fun fact Google… And i'm not sure if your brain can handle this but…
    If people don't like using Google+, And they are avoiding it like the bloody pest, You don't force it into a huge website like Youtube and expect people to be happy…
    The entire website is a bloody mess now thanks to this bullshit
    Both the Youtubers and the viewers are freaking pissed
    Ok before we had freedom of choice, they could use G+ or not use it, fine, i know some people use it… BUT DON'T TAKE AWAY THIS FREEDOM!!!
    If a person wants a big, fat, juicy cheeseburger you don't shove salad in his throat, you just offer him and if he wants it great, if not, just let it be

  10. What we all need instead of a stupid ascii tank is some civil disobedience. I'm talking a Youtube strike, where everyone agrees on one day to completely avoid the site, or deletes their accounts to join Dailymotion, I dunno. Who's up for that?

  23. Screw you, Google. I am sick of you railroading me into your products. If I had tried it and liked it, I might use Google+. The fact you ruined YouTube to push it on me means I will never use it. Nobody trusts you anymore.
