Van City Eclectic Photo Walking Tour.

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Experience hosted by Wayne

What you'll do

My home is along Main street -- the heart and soul of Vancouver. We will walk through one of Vancouver's oldest neighbourhoods -- Mount Pleasant -- using our mobile devices to create little I-masterpieces stopping at local venues along the way: Cartems Donuts or one of many local Breweries and a surprise location(s). Bring your enthusiasm, a mobile device and your smiling walking shoes and I will wrap up our journey together with a demonstration and tips that going forward, will make your photographs SING.
Other things to note
It would be wonderful (but not necessary) to download the Snapseed photo app (works for Android and I-Phone). It is the only photo app I use.

As the group leader of our photowalk with Wayne, I was once again so impressed with his ability to connect immediately with all the participants. His knowledge and skill set make this experience truly valuable for the novice to a more experienced photographer. Wayne’s diverse hood of Mount Pleasant offers so many opportunities to capture amazing moments in time. I can’t recommend this tour enough! Wayne is awesome!

I highly recommend Wayne and his exceptional photo walk of his Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. He is extremely knowledgeable and showed a great deal of patience when explaining the various aspects of street photography. The experience had many fun memorable moments and we all came away with new tips and techniques to better utilize our iPhone camera. Thank you, Wayne!

You will learn and you will have a good time. You will be shown parts of Vancouver that you may not have seen before.

Wayne knows the city streets and alleyways from a photographer/historian's perspective. He is personable and comfortable with everyone on the tour and those encountered along the way. He is a professional photographer and shares his expertise easily. He tailors the tour to the needs and interests of his "students"

i have lived in Vancouver for 50 years but still , on this experience, came to know parts of my city that have been hidden. Wayne is a fun human being who will take you on an interesting walking journey through the lanes and by-ways. You will go home with some photos you will love to share.

Wayne has a lovely approach to photographing people and is an expert at street photography. He certainly knows his'Hood' and gave us local info along the way. The walk- about re "Street Photography for Street Art" was well presented but not too rushed.We also enjoyed the Vintage clothing market, as well as the coffee and donut break Our group was engaged and we are all hoping to see Wayne again.
