Photographing Cities
Vancouver, B.C.

Seattle waterfront

Vancouver, BC, nestled at the base of the Coast Mountain Range and showcasing 11 miles of beaches, is surrounded by natural beauty, making it a dream location for any photographer.  In the mountains, are abundant hiking trails, waterfalls, ski resorts, and vistas; while whale watching, sea kayaking, and scuba diving are just some of the activities taken on down below.  Celebrating all people, Vancouver offers many multi-cultural events and each neighborhood offers its very own unique flavor to this vibrant city.  Some notable downtown destinations include Canada Place, Christ Church Cathedral, and Robson Square.

Stanley Park’s seawall path lends itself to many photographic opportunities; among these are the authentic totem poles from 1920 at Brockton Point.  Prospect Point is a scenic overlook with a view of Lion’s Gate Bridge, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, and the peaks on the North Shore, including Grouse Mountain.  Grouse Mountain has a skyride to its top.  The Capilano Suspension Bridge is a must see, as well as the park’s Treetop Adventure, which is a series of interconnected platforms and bridges connecting the giant trees.
