What you'll do

Have you ever come home from an amazing trip with images that disappoint or don't allow you to explain the wonder of your trip? If so then this experience is for you! This experience is about creating better photos and how to use that knowledge when you are at home or traveling anywhere in the world. We will discuss the best practices for approaching people and getting permission to take their photo. Better portraits and better scenic shots will be the goal. I will dispel some myths about what makes a great image and I will show you some simple tips and techniques to guarantee your images will be great all the time. Toronto is the backdrop but the lessons learned can be applied whenever you pick up your camera and wherever you may go. These tips apply to camera phones as well as DSLR's (digital single lens reflex) see, you have already learned something :)

Where you'll be

The destination is Kensington Market but the journey will take us through Toronto’s very own Chinatown. This area is brimming with photo opportunities. Eventually we will make our way to the Market, with its bohemian feel It’s been a destination to locals and tourists for decades . With its specialty grocers, bakeries and cheese shops not to mention amazing eats. The goal is a photo for your wall.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Ideally you are familiar with your camera and it's basic setup. I can certainly help but I don't know every camera and it's settings. Still, with a bit of Google, I'm sure we can solve most problems.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Be prepared to walk outside so dress appropriately. The groups will be limited to no more than 8 people (exceptions may be permitted if agreed beforehand). Food and beverages are not included.
