What to Expect
This night photowalk tour starts at Canada Place, where you learn about the basics of long exposure photography. Your guide will assess where you're at with photography and catch you up if there are more experienced participants in the class.

You cover some basic architectural and composition aspects with the help of Vancouver's new Convention Centre and iconic Canada Place. You then head to Gastown to practice light trails, night portraiture, and writing with light.

The class covers black and white photography and if time permits, you go into special effects using flash and zoom. You conclude the tour at the Steam Clock in Gastown, and combine all of the previous elements of the photowalk.

Please note that as the sunset time changes the start time for this tour will shift. Once you register you will be contacted with the exact start time of the tour, but it will be around 30 minutes prior to sunset.
