What you'll do
** PLEASE NOTE: THE SUSPENSION BRIDGE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO MAINTENANCE. HOWEVER, THE TOUR IS STILL ON AS WE VISIT OTHER SPOTS ON THE TRAILS. ** We'll spend a couple of hours exploring old-growth forests, natural pools and waterfalls. Your tour is a picture-perfect way to experience Canada’s nature, while learning the basics of landscape photography. With plenty of one-on-one instruction, you will learn to take amazing photos whether you’re packing the latest DSLR or a camera phone. All levels of hikers and types of cameras are welcome. Lynn Canyon is one the most popular trails for locals, much less crowded than the 'touristy' Capilano Suspension bridge park. Overall, this park has more to offer - waterfalls, pools and the option to take a dip in the cold water. This bridge is not only less crowded, I will take you there in specific times so you get the bridge all to yourself for that Instagram shot! In addition, I will take you to see hidden gems within the forest. There are several trails so you have the option to choose based on your ability. Details on what to wear and bring along for the tour will be provided. As a photographer I'll capture your memories, and send you complimentary photos at the end of our tour.
I've been leading hikes for the past 20 years and founded Nature PhotoHikes where I share my love of outdoor photography with travelers and locals. My tours include guided hikes/walks, photo shoots and lessons on your DSLR or smartphone (composition as well as settings like depth of field, shutter speed, exposure, video, etc). You'll receive complimentary photos after the tour. I also host 5 other experiences: airbnb.ca/experiences/131977 airbnb.ca/experiences/540676 airbnb.ca/experiences/175409 airbnb.ca/experiences/652032 airbnb.ca/experiences/1155351

Where you'll be
You will explore Lynn Canyon Park and Suspension Bridge - a hidden gem popular with the locals. The 'walk-in-the-park' is easy, fun and safe for anyone, regardless of age. I will customize the tour based on your physical ability, venturing deep into the forest or just standing high on the bridge. Photography instructions on composition and DSLR settings like aperture, shutter speed and white balance will be covered.
