What you'll do

Ever go on a trip & end up with a collection of hit and miss pictures or none with you in them that you want to keep, frame or post online? Let me take some photos for you and let's have some fun along the way! First we'll meet at a cafe for introductions and a chance to grab a drink. Then I’ll take you on my own customised trail to see some hidden local spots in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood which tourists very rarely get the chance to venture to, with loads of incredible street art to act as backdrops for your photos.
I’ll take your photos for you with a high end DSLR and pro lenses, and don’t worry I can show you how to pose to get that great shot. I have worked with anybody from professional studio models to individuals who have never had their photos taken before and who were pretty uncomfortable in front of the camera. It is amazing to see how people’s confidence levels can soar as they get into it and with a little direction unveil a whole new side of themselves with stunning photos. Suitable for anyone whether just as a fun confidence building exercise, or for those looking for insta-worthy shots.

Experience will last between 1.5 & 2 hours depending on guest numbers.

Private groups of 1 to 3 can book, if your group is more than 3 people or if the scheduled times don't fit your travel plans just let me know in advance and we can try make alternate arrangements.

I'm a local Vancouverite with a professional passion for photography and an enthusiasm for meeting new people and sharing some hidden gems of this beautiful picturesque city with them. This is my stomping ground and I'd love to show you my neighbourhood through a local's lens. No pun intended ;)
I have been involved in photographic pursuits for the past 15+ years. Was a student of 3 different photography schools, two here in Vancouver and one in Dublin Ireland. I have worked as an assistant photographer in Ireland’s top photographic studio, exhibited my work in multiple continents, shot behind the scenes for film productions in Australia and Canada, and have contributed as editor to a fine-art photography magazine. My experience covers studio portraits, fashion, street photography, model portfolios, weddings, engagements, film and nature.

Where you'll be

We will visit a local's cafe, the iconic Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, local mural street art and back alley wonders. On the day I can tell you about the artists and their work if you have any questions. I'll also show you some interesting spots along the way such as the local micro breweries and boutique / thrift stores which you can come back to after the photo session and explore at your leisure.

IT WAS AWESOME! Can't wait to see the Pictures! Laura and I had a beautiful day - some rain, some sunshine and a lot of fun. She told me the stories behind the wall paintings, showed me poses, responded to special wishes and provided a relaxed atmosphere. I will have a lot of memorable photos! Thanks for this amazing photoshooting!

Our time with Laura was a lot of fun. She showed us all sorts of different murals in Mount Pleasant and explained the history and meaning of each one. She is very personable which made it very easy to relax for a good photo. We can't wait to see the finished photos! :)

Had an absolute blast with Laura! Initially I was shy and quite self conscious about posing for shots but Laura made me feel so comfortable. She really guided me through the whole experience, giving excellent direction while also having fun!! By the end of the shoot it felt like hanging out with an old friend! The shots turned out amazing too and I got to see a cool and colorful side of the city. I would highly recommend Laura to everyone! Whether you're camera shy and need a confidence boost or whether you're looking for those insta-perfect snaps, this experience ticks every box!

I chose this experience with Laura on a whim and didn’t really know what to expect from it. I have to say that choosing this experience with Laura has been a highlight of my time here in Vancouver. Laura is extremely friendly and warm. She made me feel very comfortable and we connected very well with each other. Laura is a fantastic photographer and has an eye for the perfect spot to get the perfect capture. Very dedicated and extremely affable, Laura was a delight to hang out with. If anyone is looking for a wonderful photographer who also knows the city’s hidden gems, then I recommend you get in touch with Laura and book this experience. Totally worth it. Thank you Laura.

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

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.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 16 and up can attend.

More tips

2.5 hr time slot is the longest to accommodate the max booking group size of 6 guests. If one person in booking we will be 1.5 hrs. If heavy rain is expected the options are rescheduling or refund

What to bring

A change of outfit or accesories if you want a different look between pictures. Note; for group bookings like this we will not have a changing room so something you can easily switch up in a public place would be best.
