Eventbrite - Chinatown & Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Gardens Photo Tour

 

Chinatown in Vancouver, British Columbia is Canada’s largest Chinatown .

Few neighbourhoods in Vancouver embody the city’s history, diverse cultures and vibrant future like Chinatown. Lot’s of local residents and adventurous tourists make the people watching and street photography fun and easy.  Unique shops with unusual food and clothing items are great for detail shots and story telling techniques.

We will also explore the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen public park adjacent to the Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. The park offers unique opportunities for nature and landscaped water features in the centre of our city. The Classical Garden is well worth a visit too. It is the first of its kind ever built outside of China and voted the best city garden in Canada. This ornate landscape of jade-colored ponds, stone pathways and traditional halls was built in 1986 by 52 Chinese craftsmen.

We focus on specific settings and techniques for:

Candid people street photography
Story telling / photojournalism
Travel walk around exposure settings
