Street Photography

Street Photography

Saturday 14 October
Gastown - 10am - 2 Hours
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you. We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations in Vancouver.

  • New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

  • Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

  • What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

    The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

    Join the Vancouver Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    This was my second outing with the group and I found it fun and informative. Although the sunlight wasn't fully cooperative, there was still ample lighting to explore the genre and Gabriel makes a great tour guide. I appreciate these events as it gives me an avenue to expand my photographic expertise and my creative eye.
    It was a great experience to meet up with a varied group of photo enthusiasts and embark upon a journey with the intent to capture theme related images in a public setting. There seemed to be a balanced mix of discussion relating to choice of lenses and photographic styles with personal conversations on how we each came to be at this particular meet up. I am happy to have participated in this event and look forward to joining others like it in the future.
    I enjoy my time, I plan to come out for the event on the 29.

    I was a great and informative day with Gabriel. He is so passionate and given good information. Thank you
    Instructor - excellent! Very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Location - fabulous! Granville island has so many photographic possibilities
    My friend and I really enjoyed our experience with Gabriel. He was very knowledgeable and thorough.
