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.

We will visit all the must see places in and around the St. John's area.

Get Directions

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

Can I bring a Non-Photographer partner, family or friend with me?

We always welcome non-photographers on our tours. Even without taking the photographs the experience will be very memorable.

Standard ticket prices for non-photographer persons. However, a private tour you can take the whole family for the group rate.

How far in advance do I need to make my bookings?

The sooner you are able to make your booking, the better. We have no way of knowing when other people will book, so by the time you decide to confirm your place, it may be that the tour is already filled up! Our advice is to book as soon as you’ve made the decision to travel.

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

Yes, advance ticket purchase is required. Events typically sell out quickly. To maximize your chances of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.

If a photo tour is sold out, can I get on a waiting list?

Yes,  please email us to let us know what date you are interested in if you do not see availability.

What should I bring with me?

Each tour is unique and will require different items.  However, each tour will have a list that will include nice-to-have and must-have items.
