Photo Walk Workshops in Quebec City

In all my years of teaching photography workshops, I have always been a fan of photo walks. You can only go so far when teaching photography concepts to people in a classroom. In our journey of finding a photographic voice you need to get out there and shoot, is what I always say.

What is great about a photo walk is that it can provide expert feedback on whatever you choose to take a photo of. We let you shoot, comment on your image, and address every readjustment you make immediately. It is amazing how important this is. Your photographic skills get better right before your eyes.

If lived, learning sticks!

What to Expect On a Quebec City Photo Walk Workshop

 

The Quebec City photo walk workshop schedule looks like this.

 

  • Meeting in front of the Morrin Centre for a small briefing (18:45). I quickly review some essential photography concepts.
  • I give everyone a small photographic mission/challenge (you can accept it or do your own thing. No stress)
  • We start the walk. The path will depend on weather, lighting, and how many people do the walk. But it will be concentrated around the Morrin Centre address. The Morrin Centre is surrounded by beautiful historic architecture that deserves to be captured!
  • We reassemble back at the Morrin Centre and discuss our photographic captures.

Even though Quebec City is filled with architectural gems, there are still many treasures at the macro level. The walk is for all photographers. We concentrate on helping you accentuate your image making interests.

During the photo walk, we encourage everyone to look for different perspectives that will make their photography stand out from others. We try to get you to "photograph" and push away the idea of "taking snapshots"

Your Quebec City Photo Walk Check List

 

The photo walk is not long nor is it uphill. I designed a mostly flat photo walk. However, you cannot ignore certain realities of any photo walk. Here are some things you need to be aware of:

 

  • Dress for the weather report (keep warm in the winter, cool in the summer)
  • Dress comfortably. Prioritize excellent walking shoes
  • Check your camera’s waterproof rating. If it is not waterproof, do not fret; make sure you have something to cover it if the weather rears its ugly head
  • Be open to constructive criticism. Remember that it is all in good faith. We share the same goal. Making you guys better at your craft.

Conclusion

 

Whether you are a street photographer, macro photographer, portrait photographer, or a snapshot person, getting out there and taking photos and finding out what you need to do to improve your skills right away is the biggest benefit of a photo walk. Armed with your imaging device of choice, an open attitude, and a passion for photography, you can capture the beauty of lovely Quebec City.
