What's New At PolaWalk #2

What's New At PolaWalk #2

by Thomas Preyer

Hi everyone,

today you'll get an update on what we've been up to since the last news post and what's coming up within the next couple of weeks. Let's start with what's coming up:

What's next?

PolaWalk Teaser-Video

Okay, that's not really about what's coming up, this is happening now! Thommy and Christine did a hell of a job on our first teaser video.

Watch it now and visit us on our YouTube channel to watch it again, and again, and again! We want to break the Miley Cyrus record for most views within the first 24 hours. Way to goooo! ;-) (EDIT: Admitted, we didn't break the record, BUT it was close. Still, watch the video! ;-) )

Did you like it? Please tell us what you think in the comments.

Camera Package & Lieblingsflohmarkt

We proudly present: The PolaWalk camera package!

The PolaWalk camera package

Carefully selected and tested classic Polaroid cameras, an informative quick guide to instant photography, a pack of new "The Impossible Project" color instant film and all of the above in our fashionable PolaWalk gym bag. VoilĂ  - the PolaWalk camera package is born!

Awesome, you say, but where can I get it? Well, we'll have our booth (check out the picture from last week's Hafenbazar below) at the Lieblingsflohmarkt (28th of September) which this time takes place at the legendary Gartenbaukino. There we will also sell tickets to our tours and workshops - all at reduced rates. So stop by and have a chat with us and follow the link to join the Facebook Event.

If you can't visit us at the flea market, but are interested in getting your hands on that exclusive package, you can write us an email to office@polawalk.com

Polaroid Workshop Beginner

Our next workshop will take place on the 29th September at our office in the ninth district. The 29th is election day in Austria, so vote first and afterwards come to relax and learn cool stuff about instant photography with us. You'll be home just in time for the first projection.


As usual there will be free snacks and drinks - last time we had Gilbert's yummy apple strudel ;). There are still four places left at the time of writing, so get your ticket here. You can also join the Facebook event. The workshop is restricted to six attendees!

Urban Vienna Tour

In short: A Polaroid photo tour tailored to the needs of Vienna natives.

We'd like to show people from our hometown a new side of their city, apart from touristic landmarks, and therefore help them see, feel, explore and capture their surroundings.

What have we been up to?

Let's now take a look at the past few weeks.

Madame Tussauds Tour  x  Impossible Project

As you might already know, we make the experience of visiting Madame Tussauds even better. Fact of the matter, making Polaroids of famous people like Albert Einstein and getting "creative" with all the wax figures is really fun. And doesn't it look even more realistic than a digital picture would? ;-)

In September we've teamed up with the lovely peeps from The Impossible Shop Vienna, but we visit Madame Tussauds with a group at least at four days a week. This tour is the perfect solution for rainy days and we can assure you, it's an activity that's a lot of fun and not only for tourists. ;-)

Want to give it a try? Find all the information about the tour and booking details on our website.

Best of Album - Flickr

We had quite a few awesome events so far, beside our launch event in July, we had the Polaroid Workshop Beginner at our new office in the ninth district. We also had the just mentioned Madame Tussauds Tour and a good number of our "classic" tours, the Polaroid Photo Tour Vienna. Therefore we created an album with the best pictures so far on our Flickr page. We are going to regularly update the  Best of album and add new pictures from our events.

Vacation Report by Thomas

You'd like to see some more cool Polaroids? Then you should take a look at what Thomas experienced during his vacation in the more rural regions of Austria.

In the Media

Last but not least, there were a few appearances by PolaWalk in various media outlets. Among them was a short, but nice piece in Austria's largest newspaper, the so called "Die Kronen Zeitung".

Kathi from Travelettes wrote a great and well researched blog post on what she experienced on our tour.

That's it for today. Next week we will tell you about the Wiener Fotomarathon, where Gilbert brought a little analog into the digital event!

We hope to see you soon!
