What you'll do

You will become a street photographers for the day, learning new techniques with your camera as well as learning the art of story telling through your lens.

We will explore a corner of Vancouver whether it's Gastown, Strathcona or weaving through the downtown core while taking in the sights and sounds of this beautiful city I am proud to call home.

We will work together to understand shutter speed and aperture to create a unique and original story you can share back home. I will be your guide - drawing on my experiences over the past 15 years of photography - to break down the advanced lessons so you can master the basics.

My goal of this walk is to help you grow your love of photography and learn some cool tricks along the way. As street photography is about capturing a unique moment in time, I will show you how to hone in on the skills to put yourself in a better position to be able to find the best opportunity.

I am a lifestyle and architecture photographer in Vancouver with a passion for human interaction that can only be found through street photography. I have been a passionate explorer of random neighbourhoods and documenting life throughout Vancouver.

I prefer to take a few steps off the main path to find a different story to tell and have been fortunate to live in Europe, Asia and Northern Canada.

I look forward to showing you Vancouver

This was both a fantastic way to explore the city and to improve my photo game! I have been trying street photography on my own, but it never looked that good. I knew there were things I was doing wrong, but I wasn't sure what to do differently. Peter was a great teacher! He was able to take the concepts of good street photos, and distill them down for novices like me. It had an immediate impact. I was looking through my pix last night, and I was amazed at how much better they were after his instructions. Peter is a great guy, very willing to adjust his lessons to the needs and desires of the attendees. Very accommodating and fun. I would recommend without hesitation.

We set up this tour as a birthday surprise for our amateur photog friend. Peter was a fantastic guide and instructor and provided the perfect balance between exploration and instruction. We highly recommend this experience not just for lovers of photography, but for anyone that wants to get to know Vancouver better. We’ll definitely be doing this again on our next visit!

Peter provided an exceptional photography walking tour. Learned a lot about how he approaches street photography, and he also taught me a lot about how to use my dslr camera for various situations and settings. We went through some interesting neighborhoods and to various spots to find some great shots. Concluded the tour by the waterfront at night with some great shots of the skyline. I had a scheduling mix up for my original booking, and Peter was so kind to accommodate me on another night to ensure I didn’t miss the experience. Had a great time, and Peter is a very engaging and friendly person!

Vancouver by night is magic feel, full of energy, vibrant lights, glares, shadows, reflections, people, buildings. Peter has a deep knowledge about composition. On this wonderful city, he shared me his best tips of photography. After we walked through alleys, and sidewalks, exploring rooftop parking lots for stunning views. We also went to Chinatown and Downtown. So happy to learn how to use my camera and make better photos even without tripod, thank you Peter, great tour!
