What you'll do

This one hour private tour (2 hrs for 2+ guests) is a great way to see Gastown and Chinatown at night, while learning photography. I'll take you to popular spots as well as hidden gems tourists are not familiar with.

For photos, we'll cover techniques ranging from long exposure for DSLR cameras to night portrait shots with camera phones. You'll receive complimentary photos after the tour, although this is not a photoshoot (please check other experiences for that).

What's included

  • Equipment
    You can borrow a DSLR camera or tripod, upon request

Nafee was very knowledgeable about photography and taught us some really cool tricks on our phones that made the pictures looked way more elevated and professional. My husband and I had a great time. And now my husband can easily take some amazing pictures of me 😜 thank you!

Book this experience! Specially if you don't have a lot of time and you want a good idea of the city plus the knowledge of Nash in photography was really helpful. I can't wait to put it in practice. Thank you Nash for such an amazing time, your kindness and caring service.

He spoke passionately about the areas of the city to get some of the best shots and he offered several tips throughout the tour on the settings to use on our camera!
