This is an easy hiking trail, great for beginners located 45 minutes from Vancouver. The 5 hour tour is a picture-perfect way to experience Canada’s natural beauty. Whether you’re packing the latest and greatest DSLR unit or a camera phone, your guide will make sure you learn to take amazing photos. With small groups and plenty of one-on-one instruction, you’ll learn all about landscape photography and how to capture the majesty of nature wherever you are. The trail is at Mt Seymour and includes pick and drop off from Downtown Vancouver via public transit, or we can meet directly at the location. Your guide, with over 10 years of hiking and guiding experience, will take you on a fun and a safe outing. You get to take a break at the top for snacks/lunch and opportunity to work on your photography.
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/540676 airbnb.ca/experiences/175409 airbnb.ca/experiences/652032 airbnb.ca/experiences/1155351
