This photography tour takes place during sunrise and sunset when the light is best for photography. We will go out to shoot at sunrise and again at sunset. Since we are up early there will be a break before lunch to provide time for a nap and to recharge your batteries. After dinner and before sunset you will be picked up again and brought to different locations in St. John’s to take more scenic pictures under the best lighting conditions.
We start our tour photographing the most easterly location in North America at sunrise. At Cape Spear we can photograph the oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland; the location is designated a National Historic Site of Canada. The original lighthouse building and the light-keeper’s residence has been restored to the period of 1839. If you are an early riser we can be there to catch the sunrise, which will be something that will stay with you forever.
During this workshop we will visit Jelly Bean Row houses where you can capture all the brilliant colours of downtown St. John’s. Each street in historic St. John’s has a unique character and provides great photographic opportunities. A local professional photographer will also show you behind-the-scenes photo locations. You will be guided to the most scenic areas while listening to a little history lesson on Jelly Bean Row.
During our trip we will also visit the South Side Hills where you can capture pictures of The Battery, which is a favourite for photographers. From here we can explore Fort Amherst and get some great pictures of the old lighthouse that greets passengers as they enter St. John’s harbour.
Fishing villages provide great photo opportunities during your time in Newfoundland. We will visit Quidi Vidi where you can photograph fishing boats and old fishing stages, and become immersed in the Newfoundland culture. In busy Petty Harbour, small fishing boats come and go, allowing for more great photos.
We will visit other areas as well as we photograph St. John’s and the surrounding area.
