What you'll do
We'll spend three hours exploring Stanley Park and its old-growth forests, Totem Poles, Lost Lagoon lake, the Seawall and English Bay and Sunset beaches. Your tour is a picture-perfect way to experience Canada’s nature, while learning the basics of landscape photography. With plenty of one-on-one instruction, you will learn to take amazing photos whether you’re packing the latest DSLR or a camera phone. Stanley Park, a 400-hectare natural West Coast rainforest, is a Vancouver icon located in downtown. The scenic views of water, mountains, sky, and majestic trees along Stanley Park's famous Seawall look even more stunning during the golden and blue hours. Adding to that the beautiful spring colours, you'll learn to capture amazing photos. I will also take and send you complimentary photos after our tour.
I've been leading hikes for the past 20 years and founded Nature PhotoHikes where I share my love of outdoor photography with travelers and locals. My tours include guided hikes/walks, photo shoots and lessons on your DSLR or smartphone (composition as well as settings like depth of field, shutter speed, exposure, video, etc). You'll receive complimentary photos after the tour. I also host 5 other experiences: airbnb.ca/experiences/27129 airbnb.ca/experiences/131977 airbnb.ca/experiences/540676 airbnb.ca/experiences/175409 airbnb.ca/experiences/1155351

Where you'll be
You will explore Stanley Park, see the Totem Poles, walk along the Seawall, stop at Lost Lagoon, English Bay and Sunset Beach Park, all the while capturing the golden hour. The 'walk-in-the-park' is easy, fun and safe for anyone, regardless of age. I will customize the tour based on your physical ability, venturing deep into the forest or just visiting the main spots. We'll cover composition and DSLR settings like aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
