Vancouver – A Photographer’s Delight
You’re probably wondering what that means, aren’t you?
Vancouver – Canada’s third largest city only behind Toronto and Montreal is a place of perpetual amazement with so much to see and capture. Whether or not you’re just a beginner or a seasoned professional, there is so much to soak in and around this cosmopolitan city and we’re not just talking about “soaking” in the rain or sunshine either. No matter what time of year, Vancouver will always have something spectacular for you to capture. All you need is a sense of adventure and you won’t be disappointed!
So many places, so much time as opposed to “so little time”. Vancouver has so much to offer from sunsets at English Bay to people-watching in Gastown, there’s somewhere for everyone.
A few suggestions:
- Olympic Village
Home to all the athletes from the 2010 Winter Olympic Games is now a thriving community of millennials as well as various cafes and even a craft beer market for after those photo walks.
One of the largest and oldest Chinatowns in North America and the largest in Canada with a rich community filled with history from as early as the late 1800s.
Home of the famous and the very first Steam Clock of it’s kind in the world. Built in 1977 by Raymond L. Saunders and is at the corners
of Cambie and Water Streets, in the true heart of Gastown.
- Canada Place
The former Canadian pavilion during Expo 86 world fair that brought millions to Vancouver for an amazing event for visitors all around the world. It is now home to our cruise ship terminal which brings tourists to our city each and every summer from April till early October.
- Vancouver Convention Centre
Built for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and served as the Main Media Centre during the Games and now houses nearly 500-plus events per year.
- Stanley Park
Larger than Central Park in New York, Stanley Park has over 1000 acres of lush greenery and almost completely surrounded by the natural beauty of water including the Vancouver Harbour and English Bay.
- English Bay
A quiet place of reflection and solitude, English Bay is filled with those places that will inspire the soul and encourage the spirit. The beach here is also a wonderful place just to have some R n’ R.
So for all of you photographers out there, this is probably the best place for you to be at any time of the year as Vancouver is definitely photogenic in every season and even in the rain. We’re not known as the “Wet Coast” for no reason, ya’ know?
