    We will gather at the World's Largest Tin Soldier, beside the River Market at 6:00pm.  Kathy's walk will take up to 2 hours. We can finish up the evening with a coffee or a snack when we are done.

    Please remember to dress for the conditions (proper footwear, bring an umbrella,), and don't forget your tripod.

    I pulled this information off of the Airbnb Experiences website.

    About Your Host:

    I am a photographer who lives in New Westminster, British Columbia. I love exploring any city, but especially my own, to find beauty in the lines, the light and the reflections of the built environment. I enjoy sharing my approach to urban photography, not only through the images I share, but also through talks at the New Westminster Photography Club, and by taking other photographers on photowalks to share some of my favorite locations.

    What we will do:

    We will meet at the Riverfront in New Westminster, where we will get to know each other, and go over the particular details of the day (weather, coffee, washrooms etc). From there we will walk to several vistas, public art installations, and other locations that have interesting aspects to photograph. I am happy to offer the backstory to some of the more iconic public art installations, as well as tips or tricks for taking images with interesting perspectives, textures or reflections. The photowalk will take about 2 hours from start to finish. The terrain at the Riverfront ranges from boardwalk to paved paths, and is wheelchair accessible.

    What else you should know:

    Rain is a gift at the quay, the puddles and reflections are magical after a rain! Unless the rain is completely out of hand, we will go rain or shine. Please dress for the weather, and bring an umbrella to keep your camera or phone safe from the elements.

     

     
     

    Logistics:

    Let's meet at the World's Largest Tin Soldier, beside the River Market at Westminster Quay at  6:00pm.  From there, Kathy will take us on a walk to explore the views from the boardwalk, and the intriguing architecture of the Inn at the Quay.  From there, we will follow the Fraser River along the Pierside Park, and the striking WOW Westminster art installation, exploring as we go.
