What you'll do

We'll spend three hours exploring Stanley Park and its old-growth forests, Totem Poles, Lost Lagoon lake, the Seawall and English Bay and Sunset beaches. Your tour is a picture-perfect way to experience Canada’s nature, while learning the basics of landscape photography. With plenty of one-on-one instruction, you will learn to take amazing photos whether you’re packing the latest DSLR or a camera phone.

Stanley Park, a 400-hectare natural West Coast rainforest, is a Vancouver icon located in downtown. The scenic views of water, mountains, sky, and majestic trees along Stanley Park's famous Seawall look even more stunning during the golden and blue hours. Adding to that the beautiful spring colours, you'll learn to capture amazing photos. I will also take and send you complimentary photos after our tour.

Where you'll be

You will explore Stanley Park, see the Totem Poles, walk along the Seawall, stop at Lost Lagoon, English Bay and Sunset Beach Park, all the while capturing the golden hour. The 'walk-in-the-park' is easy, fun and safe for anyone, regardless of age. I will customize the tour based on your physical ability, venturing deep into the forest or just visiting the main spots. We'll cover composition and DSLR settings like aperture, shutter speed and ISO.

Nafees was great. He had so much information related to Stanley park, it’s history and the way it was designed. He provided me with lots of history and background information (which was amazing to know) about the First Nation and totem poles. Though it was raining and cold he was determined to do his job till the very last minute. I really enjoyed the 3 hours tour and I highly recommend it.

He was very kind, and he changed the time and place for me. I have dslr but I'm not good at handling. He kindly taught me. Thanks to him, today was the perfect day! I should have known him early. Then I would have booked more of his tour. If you come to Seoul, Korea, I want to show you around!

I couldn’t find point of location, mainly my fault, we started late, but host was really good at finding me and was very patient, so I really appreciated that. This host is very much an expert with cameras and with taking good shots, I learned a few things from him in this respect.

My husband and I did the photo walk through Stanley Park and English Bay with Nafees. It was just the two of us, and Nafees catered the experience to our (beginner photographer) abilities. He showed us simple tips on composition and light exposure that made our shots (just on our cell phones) look amazing!! He also sent us all the photos he took on the walk. Beyond the photography, Nafees was just a really nice and interesting guy, and we enjoyed our afternoon with him. 🙂

This experience was AMAZING!!! Nafees is so friendly and accomdating. He really helped me get some good shots. He knew all of the best spots for photos and best times to access them. I really enjoyed learning how to take better photos with my smartphone (which I always have on hand). I would highly reccomend this experience when you are visiting Vancouver.
