What you'll do

We will start by meeting outside Olympic Village skytrain station (or granville island) and from there head to Granville Island where we will talk about the process of food photography and then explore the market, do some shopping for our shoot and take some images along the way. After we finish up at Granville island we will head back to my home photo studio where I will prepare what we have decided to shoot. I will then guide you through the process of a simple editorial style food shoot using the food we have purchased and the props I have on hand. After our shoot we will have something to eat! After, I will drop you off at King Edward, Broadway-city hall or Olympic village skytrain station. Transportation, food, drinks and props provided. Please bring your camera! I recommend a DSLR or mirrorles with full manual controls, although I can still help you make some interesting images with a cellphone camera! If you have a tripod feel free to bring that as well but I will have extras.

Where you'll be

Granville island market, located just south of downtown on beautiful False Creek inlet, is host to specialty food shops, butchers, bakers, fishmongers, artisans and more. This is a hotspot for tourists and locals alike. My studio apartment is located in Cambie village, a mostly residential area of the city not far from the Granville Island Market. The apartment is on the ground floor with lots of natural light for easy access and shooting.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 4 guests ages 18 and up can attend.

What to bring

Camera with full manual control (dslr or mirrorless), if you don't have one of these we will still create some interesting images!

More tips

Having a basic level of how your camera works, the "exposure triangle" and manually controlling your camera will be beneficial but even if you just bought your first camera (or shoot with a phone) I will help you to make beautiful images and learn along the way!
