What you'll do

Ready to get some Vancouver-style photos of yourself?!?

I designed this experience to help solo-travelers, couples, and groups of friends get photos of themselves to remember their fun times in Vancouver. This experience doubles as a Photoshoot and Tour.

So get ready to explore an awesome Vancouver neighborhood while getting some Instagrammable pictures of yourself!

First, we will meet in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of East Vancouver. Mount Pleasant is a hip, bohemian, artistic community which hosts the annual mural festival every summer.

Second, I will start guiding you behind some dumpy looking buildings to reveal some really awesome murals and interesting walls! I'm not joking these buildings are ugly and tourists would never even think to check behind them.

Third, we will stop at each mural and in each alley to get pictures of you for your social media or just for your own private memories. We can do between 1-5 shots of you at each place!

*I'll be taking all of your photos with my own equipment (DSLR), but I can also use your device. After 2 days, I will send you every unedited photo taken of you during the tour. Then you can choose 5 photos for editing. :-)
Other things to note
This is not a private photo shoot. I'll have it set for a group of maximum 5 people. This is a great opportunity to meet fellow travelers! However, please message me if you want a private session.

Where you'll be

Mount Pleasant is a Vancouver neighborhood with many nooks and crannies not in the tourist guides. What's great about the neighborhood is its desire to create beauty everywhere, even in a dumpster alley.

What I've found in my time living here, is things are never what they seem. You might see a bunch of grey industrial buildings and think they're nothing special but behind them could be a colorful oasis!

I will show you all my discoveries!

Ana is very warm and friendly. She was patient and accommodating as we had to keep rescheduling for the weather. The shoot was okay but we really only got 1 photo that I could use for instagram - the lighting was just off in the venue, unfortunatley. While this is not necessarily an issue (it happens), I would have appreciated more collaboration on the selection of the photos phase - I asked for her to use her professional opinion to choose photos she thought she could adjust for the lighting issue. I'm not a professional photo editor. She declined to do so. I've decided to re-do the shoot when I'm next in Vancouver. All anyone wants when they hire a professional is the professional's guidance on editing when requested - especially since they said they could do so during the shoot. Since I did not do the tour, I can't comment on that and I'm sure she does a great tour. Ana is a very nice person - I just need someone to be professional when I ask for help with photos.

This is the perfect tour for anyone travelling in Vancouver whether it be alone or with friends! Ana knows her stuff and is super engaging. She makes you feel right at home with her amazing personality and makes posing in front of a bunch of murals super fun and not the least bit awkward! I had such a fantastic time! Couldn’t of asked for a better host.
