Description: Photowalks are a great way to see our beautiful city, learn and practice...
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.

I booked four of their photo tours. Two with Ekaterina and two with Suzanne. All four tours were fantastic. I learned so much especially with regard to camera settings, composition, and night photography. Both instructors were informative and very personal. I would recommend these tours to newbies through to avid photographers. Looking forward to visiting Vancouver again and taking more... More

I spent a really nice couple of hours with Ekaterina along the sea wall. She showed me a few new things about my old camera and helped me with some techniques on using the settings. I learned a lot. I really appreciated my time with her. Vancouver Photo Walks actually changed their location for me to Stanley Park rather than... More

We did Gastown with Ekatrina and it was a fun, learning time. The discovery of CRAB Park was a bonus. Learning lighting and angles and seeing through different eyes was another new way to see things. A must-do for anyone interested in creative photography.

I scoured online for an affordable introduction to photography class, and boy, was I glad that I stumbled upon Vancouver Photowalks! A great mix of theory and practical, Ekaterina taught us several new techniques and left us with some beautiful pictures to take home. As a new resident to the city and newbie to photography, I feel equipped to take... More

I really enjoyed my photowalk with Ekaterina. I am new to photography and I had a lot of questions for her. She did a great job at answering all of them and showing me how to apply my new found knowledge. It was a great investment to learn from a professional how to use the features on my camera and...

This was my second PhotoWalk with Vancouver Photowalks. The first time I had Joseph as my instructor, and it was pouring rain, but we still had a lot of fun. The second time, I was lucky to have beautiful weather with my instructor, Suzanne. I have taken many photography courses, but I have learned way more about my camera's settings... More

Wow, thank you so much for the review! I'm glad you came back after the first time with the pouring rain. Normally we don't run in wet weather but it just goes to show that you can take excellent photos, learn things and have fun even when it's raining. I'm delighted to hear that you learned so much in such... More

We had a great time with Photowalks, spending most of our time around the Gastown area. Suzanne is a great teacher, immense knowledge and enthusiasm for all levels. It was really fun seeing parts of wonderful Vancouver from a different perspective and learning a lot to improve our photography. Would definitely recommend Photowalks, whatever your level of experience is.

Thank you very much for the review of VPW. We're excited to see your photos shared in the Flickr gallery! I'm glad we go to visit parts of Gastown that people wouldn't normally see, it helped that we had extra time on the private tour! More

We visiting Vancouver for the first time April 24-29th and enrolled in the Stanley Park photowalk to capture some wonderful memories and learn a little more about our camera. We were lucky to have a private family tour (with 3 people) and we were not disappointed. Ekaterina was knowledgeable not only with her camera but with the landscapes as well.... More

I went on Gastown tour with Ekaterina and it was amazing. So the very next day I took another one on Granville Island with Suzanne and it was as amazing. Before I took the first one, I thought what am I going to learn? I know most of things, I have read the books and seen YouTube videos. But then... More

I did the Granville Island evening photowalk with Ekaterina who was just fabulous! I can't believe how much I learned & applied in just 2 hours (so much better than just reading in a book).. composition tips, lots of camera settings and how to adjust for the various photos. We took all sorts of photos while discussing ways to improve... More
