I've been leading hikes for the local community as well as travelers for the past 20 years. After living in 7 countries and visiting 66, I founded Nature PhotoHikes where I share my love of landscape photography through lessons, photoshoots and guided hikes/walks. Lessons on your camera/smartphone include tips and tricks, composition, and settings like shutter speed, aperture and ISO. I also organize hikes for charity and youth groups, including refugees and newcomers to Canada.

This airbnb experience with Nafees exceeded my expectations. We did two hikes which had spectacular ocean views and beautiful forest landscape. Nafees was easy to talk to and catered the experience to my personal physical level. And he took some pretty amazing photos. Im already looking forward to booking with Nafees on my next trip to Vancouver!

I had such a great time on a hike at Lighthouse Park with Nafees. He has a very friendly spirit and has a beautiful passion for the outdoors and photography. It was so great to learn photography tricks from him, and I was pleasantly surprised and appreciative for the bonus of him taking some beautiful photos of me and my friend. Would highly recommend!

Nafees was so personable & was really attentive to us! He assessed our skill level & gave us a great experience. He seems to know so much about his craft. Genuinely nice tour guide. Would love to book with him again when we come back to Vancouver :)

Nafees is a hiking expert and he made us feel hiking an easy thing to do. At first I was hesitant to do hiking but with his encouragement I was able to do it. The hike was relaxing and comfortable. He communicates well and knows how to handle different situations. We had photoshoots as well. Thanks Nafees for your encouragement to do hiking and for taking us to a paradise park.
