Become a tourist in your own town!
The Okanagan is a photographer’s dream. Busy with life, we very often don’t experience our home town. Learn Photography offers a fabulous opportunity to become a tourist in your own town and explore the Okanagan through the lens of your camera. There’s no shortage of places to explore…
Kelowna is the largest city in the Central Okanagan. We meet at the Rotary Center for the Arts and then move to Kelowna’s Waterfront Park with its inlets, statues and water fountains. Lunch is at the Kelowna Yacht Club where we do some dark lighting work. We then continue to the Waterfront Promenade with gorgeous views of Okanagan Lake, flowers, gazebo working our way back to Waterfront Park.
In the winter we meet at the Delta Hotels Grand Okanagan Resort and work with their beautiful fountain, columns, gazebo and interior design. Lunch is at the Resort.
We meet at the Cove Resort for our class in West Kelowna. The grounds around the resort are beautiful with grasses, flowers, fountains, statues and Okanagan Lake. Lunch is at the Resort. We then move to Gellatly Nut Farm the “go to” place for wedding photographers which offers wonderful opportunities for landscape photography.
In winter, we meet at Dogwood Nursery on Paynter Rd. The indoor part of the nursery is full of wonderful photo opportunities. There are plants, water fountains, colorful pots and garden sculptures. Alternatively we visit the West Kelowna Museum, one of the best in the area and a treasure trove of photographic opportunities. Lunch is at 19 Okanagan Grill and Bar or White Spot.
