What you'll do

Nature photography, composition, and shooting techniques will be focal points on this photo walk through my neighborhood. We will walk along the Stanley Park Seawall Path and talk about making ordinary photos extraordinary through composition choices.

We will make a stop at Morton Park and challenge ourselves to try different compositions and aperture/shutter speed settings with the A-maze-ing Laughter statues. Get ready to pose.

As we walk along the Sea Wall, we will try long exposure photography using neutral density and polarizer filters. We will cut through Stanley Park on the forest trails and head to the Lost Lagoon. We will go over camera settings and experiment with manual exposures, bracketing and exposure compensation.

I will be happy to guide you with your gear selection. I use Fujifilm X-series but am familiar with most DLSR and mirrorless systems, and I am not sponsored or affiliated with any brand. I have a selection of Fujifilm X-Series lenses, which you are welcome to try out. Just let me know and I will make sure to bring.
Other things to note
Check the weather on the day of the Photo Walk. You may need proper rain gear or an umbrella on rainy days or sunscreen and a hat on beautiful days.

For 35+ years, I have been a photography buff and have had my own photography business for 15+ years. I have been fortunate to teach photography to high school, elementary school, and private students.

In November 2015 my wife and I set out to pursue travel photography. We had a goal to visit 50 countries in a span of 50 months and when we landed in New Zealand in early 2020 we proudly reached our goal.

I am thrilled to share my experiences with travelers and give you hints on how to pursue your passion. You can follow us on our travel blog, 5050travelog.com or check mfoto.ca.

Thanks for taking a look,
Morten

The photowalk was an amazing experience. Being new to the city, going on a photowalk was a great way to explore... while getting a hands-on lesson in photography, angles, and thinking like a photographer from a professional with decades of experience. Highly recommended!

Meeting up with Morten, I instantly felt at ease. Morten is a great teacher, with an attentive, kind and humorous personality, who communicated his vast knowledge of photography while paying careful attention to my learning objectives as an absolute beginner. I learned a lot that I've now put into practice and will definitely recommend this workshop!

What a personable and fun learning session, adapted to my daughter and I and to the windy weather too.... I would highly recommend Morten as your photo tour instructor.

Devin and I had a fantastic time getting to know Morten throughout our experience. We are both beginners at photography and he shared excellent tips and background information that will ensure our photos are quality from here on out. We also really appreciated how he genuinely got to know us and shared openly about himself, too!

Amazing experience I would recommend to anyone. We had no knowledge or skill in photography prior to meeting Morten. He tailored our experience to help us walk through basic concepts that will last a lifetime. His knowledge and skill were awesome. We learned to use our phones and camera to capture those special moments we have been missing.

I had a great day out with Morton Practising landscape photography. I learnt how to take more interesting compositions, and how to use lens filters.
