About Victoria Photowalks
Join us on an ed-venture through Vancouver Island’s historic heart. Victoria Photowalks caters to both locals and tourists who are interested in furthering their photography skills. We specialize in customized two-hour photographic tours, that enable people to learn more about their digital cameras and photography, all while having fun in a beautiful area of the city. Small class sizes ensure that each student gets personalized attention. Come with questions, come with a friend, go home with beautiful photos and some new tricks!We discuss exposure, ISO, aperture and shutter speed, and touch on composition and basic portraiture. You get an information sheet to take home, and a link to an online gallery of images from each photowalk. The Victoria by Night Photowalk begins at the magical hour of twilight, where we capture the rich blue sky and continue with darker night photography. We will explore the scenic Inner Harbour after dark, learning long exposure photography, how to use a flash and creative special effects including shallow depth of field, light trails and light painting. We also offer fully customizable, private tours for solo travelers, families and groups of any size.

Having taken many photowalks, safari's etc, Victoria Photowalks is so far superior that the others are not in the same class. Suzanne does not try to overwhelm with facts, nor does she go through all the menus etc on the camera. Rather she concentrates on...More

My wife and I went on the Photowalk on the next to last day of our cruise. We both wish it had been the first day, instead. Suzanne helped me remember much of what I'd forgotten about photography and helped my wife Heather understand her...More

Victoria Photowalks is the place to go. The walk was a very pleasant learning experience. Suzanne was an outstanding teacher as she led us around Victoria and some out of the way places. She explained the different modes of the cameras while we took pictures...More
