About your host

Hi! I am a photographer who has worked as a journalist and freelance professional since 2012. I teach digital and film photography while showing you Montreal's neighborhoods so you can learn to photograph anywhere you are! Previously, I was a teaching assistant in Boston University's journalism department and led tutoring courses in Boston.

What else you should know

What I’ll provide

Equipment
I will bring a Canon-compatible flash unit as well as my own photography equipment (digital & 35mm film).

What to bring

Your camera and charged batteries, an empty SD card.
Water and a notebook to jot down technical explanations.

Where you'll be

First off, know that we will adapt to the weather and be able to work indoors as much as outdoors if need be, taking breaks from outdoors work when necessary. You'll get to know Montreal from a unique perspective as you begin to pay attention to its architecture, inhabitants, and green spaces. We'll visit the chosen neighborhood and stop at key spots so you can practice setting up a shot carefully, as well as street photography on the go.
