What you'll do

My goal is to provide a safe tour of Gastown, Chinatown, Vancouver harbor and Convention Center at night, while learning photography. I'll take you to both popular spots as well as hidden gems tourists are not familiar with. In addition, I will recommend other city spots for night photography, as well as suggestions for restaurants and watering holes from a local.

For photos, we'll cover techniques like long exposure for DSLR cameras as well night shots with camera phones. Alternatively, we can do photo shoots instead of learning photography if that's your interest. Either way, you'll receive complimentary photos after the tour.

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 56, 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.

Nafees is a great guide. This one is a good experience to learn new tricks in photography. I have zero knowledge in taking shoots and Nafees also help me to set up my camera to be more user friendly.

What a great tour! We've lived in Vancouver for over 5 years now and Nafees made us fall in love with Gastown all over again! He's super knowledgable and you can feel his passion for photography with every piece of advise and techniques he shows. Best date night activity, Nafees was very thoughtful, kind and we would highly recommend anyone new or old to the city to do it!
