When it comes to traveling, there’s nothing like hitting the open road to get the most out of your experience. Especially when you have your camera with you to capture your entire journey. And this month — with 500px co-founder Evgeny Tchebotarev — we want to make the summer last by doing just that! Scroll down, and read on to see what we have planned for you.

500px road trip route, from SF to Denver

Throughout his trip, Evgeny will be blogging about his road trip here. You can also track his updates on the road in real-time by following @tchebotarev or #500northwest on Twitter.

Evgeny will also be making stops in your city to host 500px meetups. Join him in person, and mingle with other photographers in your neighborhood bar. Plus, get free 500px swag like T-shirts.

No road trip is complete without a sweet ride. Be on the lookout for the official 500px car on the road! It will have a 500px logo and hashtag #500northwest

We’ll be updating this blog post and our social media pages later on with photos of the 500px car soon! So make sure to bookmark this page, or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
