What you'll do
Ever go on a trip and end up with a collection of hit and miss pictures or none with you in them that you want to keep, frame or post online? Let me take some photos for you in one of Vancouver's most picturesque spots and have some fun along the way! First we'll meet at a cafe for introductions and a chance to grab a drink. Then I’ll take you on my own customised trail to see some local spots in the Gastown neighborhood, some iconic and some which tourists often miss. Gastown offers so many gorgeous streets, landmarks and architecture to act as backdrops for your photos. I’ll take your photos for you with a high end DSLR and pro lenses, and don’t worry I can show you how to pose if you like to get some great shots. I have worked with anybody from professional studio models to individuals who have never had their photos taken before and who were pretty uncomfortable in front of the camera. It is amazing to see how people’s confidence levels can soar as they get into it and with a little direction unveil a whole new side of themselves with stunning photos to remember. Suitable for anyone whether just as a fun confidence building exercise, or for those looking for insta worthy shots.
I'm a local Vancouverite with a professional passion for photography and an enthusiasm for meeting new people and sharing some hidden gems of this beautiful picturesque city with them. This is my stomping ground and I'd love to show you my neighbourhood through a local's lens. No pun intended ;) I have been involved in photographic pursuits for the past 15+ years. I studied in 3 photography schools, two here in Vancouver and one in Dublin Ireland. I have worked as an assistant photographer in Ireland’s top photographic studio, exhibited my work in multiple continents, shot behind the scenes for film productions in Australia and Canada, and have contributed as editor to a fine-art photography magazine. My experience covers wedding, portrait, fashion, street, modelling portfolio, engagement, film and nature photography.

Where you'll be
First we will meet at a coffee house on the edge of Gastown and from there will travel the length of Gastown together taking in the main streets and sights as well as some of the off the trail surrounding pockets and iconic Vancouver alleyways. On the day I can tell you about the area if you have any questions. I'll also point out some interesting spots along the way such as must-see eateries & stores to check out later in your own time.
Things to keep in mind

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 2 guests ages 18 and up can attend. No prior modelling experience required.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
If there is light or intermittent rain we can continue, if heavy rain is expected the options are rescheduling or refund. I check weather forecasts frequently.
