Gastown Photo Safari With Blurb Photographer at Large - Daniel Milnor
Wednesday, 19 September 2012 at 3:00 PM
The Blurb Canadian Road Trip is stopping in Vancouver and we're celebrating with a FREE three-hour Photo Safari through Gastown!
Ever think how wonderful it would be to have a professional photographer by your side giving you tips as you're shooting? Take to the streets with Dan Milnor and the crew from Blurb for an afternoon of photography and fun. A chance to learn about lighting, timing and composition and a chance to get on-the-spot advice. In addition, you'll pick up all kinds of ideas of how you might want to think about your photography with an eye to the story and output you want to create at the end.
Walking shoes, raingear (depending on the outlook) and a sense of adventure are required.
And afterwards, everyone is invited back to Subeez on 891 Homer St. for a drink, some light appetizers and some good conversation to cap off the afternoon.
Where: Gastown, Meeting in front of Chill Winston, 3 Alexander Street, Vancouver, BC V6A 1B2
When: Wednesday, 19 September from 3 - 6pm followed by some cocktails and appetizers at Subeez, 891 Homer St from 6 -9pm
Space is extremely limited so be sure to RSVP before we fill up. Open to all who enjoy photography.
Looking forward to seeing you!!
The Blurb Team
