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.

Really enjoyed the sight-seeing experience, particularly the hike to the waterfall. Great way to see the key highlights of the city and get some good photos.

A wonderful experience to feel how Vancouver is. Hiking in the wood to see the beautiful view is really gorgeous! Thumb up for this . The city walk is also impressive, especially taken photos by only iPhone can make make pictures so nice. Throughout the tour, Nafee is nice and professional and his professional skill in hospitality and photo taking made us unforgettable. Will definitely recommend my friend to find him for tour. Value for money!

If you’re in Vancouver for a couple days and don’t know how to spend it, Nafees is your guy! The whole trip was a wonderful experience and without a heartbeat I highly recommend to anyone thinking about purchasing. Nafees is extremely friendly and by the end of the night will make you feel as if you’ve known him a lifetime. Getting around Vancouver might be a little tricky for tourist since they don’t have any ride sharing apps yet so having Nafees show us what Vancouver has to offer was super helpful and we are very glad to have experienced it!

The experience with Nafees was truly amazing. We were only in Vancouver for a couple of days and wasn’t to sure on what activities to do. There’s no ride sharing apps so going to places would have been a lil difficult and confusing to tourists such as our selves so having Nafees with us was truly helpful. He took us to many beautiful places in Vancouver that we couldn’t imagine to do by ourselves! If we ever come back to Vancouver we will def book something with Nafees again and recommend to anyone looking.

Nafees was amazing. He knew small details about the nooks and corners of the canyon and showed us some amazing locations. Even though we didn’t have a camera, he showed us very interesting techniques on our camera phones. My fiancé had an injured foot and Nafees took additional care of where he is putting his feet all throughout the trip. He is knowledgeable and also gave us additional information on rest of Vancouver. I would highly recommend this experience.

I had a great time with Nafees! Perfect guide, really beautiful hidden gem in Lynn Canyon, nice photography technique for beginners like me, and Nafees took lots of beautiful pictures of me there. Definitely worth it!
