The Real Fishing Show has allied with Virtual Photo Walks in a program that will allow Bob Izumi to share some of his angling adventures with people who are unable to physically get out on the water for a day of fishing.
“I’m happy to be a part of Virtual Photo Walks”, said Bob Izumi. “This is an incredible concept that will let folks enjoy the experience of fishing even though they may not be able to actually get out on the water.”
Founded by John Butterill, Virtual Photo Walks is a charity that harnesses the power of the internet and mobile communications to enable the disabled, infirm and those isolated by illness – young and old – to visit distant places in a real-time, interactive experience. Using virtual volunteer guides equipped with a smart phone, the disabled can participate in an immersive, real-time, experience in places they will likely never see first-hand. Participants are connected through the internet in real-time via video and voice so they can interact with each other and with their virtual photography guide in a private video conference. Through text and voice connections, participants can make special requests of their videography guide to personalize the experience. You can learn more about Virtual Photo Walks, or make a donation, on their website or on their FaceBook page .
