Type: Walking tours, Sightseeing Tours
Owner description: Photowalks are a great way to see our beautiful city, learn and practice the basics of photography, and get out of the automatic setting on your camera! In two hours, we cover exposure, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, composition and basic portraiture. Let's be honest though, it's also a ton of FUN! Lead by a professional photographer, participants are given tools, and an opportunity to explore a popular area (Science World, Convention Centre, English Bay, Coal Harbour, Gastown, Kitsilano or Granville Island) with their cameras, and are given small learning objectives. Introductory classes are offered during the day, and low-light classes in the evening.

My colleagues and I took Gastown photo walk with Suzanne last weekend and I must say it was absolutely a fun thing to do in Vancouver. Most of my colleagues used iPhone or Samsung, I used both iPhone and a camera. No matter what kind of devices that we used we all learned something from her. She taught us from... More

Great way to learn to use your camera and get fantastic shots. Suzanne was amazing to work with with and added a tour to accomodate our needs. As much as I enjoyed learning about night photography it was a bit cold and dark to see the settings on the camera. I look forward to a day tour! Thanks Suzanne

Hi, I'm glad we were able to fit in a photowalk while you were here visiting! Definitely come back during the day time so you can see the buttons and dials next time. Night photography sure makes for some beautiful images! Thank you again for coming, and for taking the time to submit a review. Suzanne More

I booked the Olympic Village photowalk with Suzanne, which ended up being a one-to-one session which was fantastic. After 2 hours walking round with Suzanne I went away very happy with lots of great tips and of plenty food for thought on my approach to my photography. Suzanne isn't afraid to give feedback which is so useful for improving my... More

Ekatrina showed me just how much more I can do with my Canon 5D She was wonderful company as a one on one guide. I can't recommend photo walks enough.

I did the Gastown night photowalk with Suzanne. This was good fun. Suzanne is a motivating upbeat teacher. There were excellent shooting opportunities and I was able to borrow a lens and a tripod.

Gastown certainly is scenic, and we love being able to assist with providing lenses, tripods, and sometimes cameras, when guests aren't traveling with their own! Thank you so much for the review, sharing your amazing images, and giving us such an excellent rating! We hope to see you again. More

My husband and I did a three-hour photowalk with Suzanne at Granville Island. The time flew because Suzanne was so professional, organized and informative. Although my husband and I are at different levels in our photography, Suzanne was able to spend equal time with us and accomodate our needs and answer our individual questions. She gave us valuable information about... More

Had a great morning with Suzanne doing the Chinatown walk. There were only two in our group, at varying knowledge levels and Suzanne easily accommodated both of our wishes and needs. Very professional and an outstanding communication style. Will do a different walk next time I visit Vancouver.

I've recently been trying to improve my photo skills and like most people I tried to learn the info I needed online but found it incredibly difficulty to put it into practice. This photowalk was suggested to me from a friend and I was hesitant as I wasn't sure it would be useful. Boy was I wrong! I was shown... More

Thank you for reinforcing the fact that it's always better to have hands on photography training rather than sitting in a classroom! We love showing people how to use their cameras better, and demystifying all the buttons and dials. Come back again soon and learn more! More
