This is another great free event happening this summer and is guaranteed to be a fun evening out with lots of interesting things to photograph.
Professional cycling in Gastown is back for another year! Witness the pure adrenaline rush of North America’s best cyclists racing around a super-fast cobblestoned course in the heart of Vancouver’s most historic neighbourhood. The streets will be transformed into one of the fastest, best loved and most challenging cycling courses in North America.
The women' s race kicks off at 5:45....they will race a total of 30 laps, covering 36 km.......the men's race will start after they have completed the route....they race 60km, circling the route 50 times! For more race info...www.globalrelayggp.org...
What should I bring:
A camera, it doesn't matter if you have a cameraphone, a point and shoot camera or a digital SLR, any camera is fine....because of the large crowds maybe minimal gear.
Make sure you you are comfortable and dressed for whatever our unpredictable weather may be that day.....
What can I photograph:
This will be an excellent opportunity to practice photographing motion as well as in low-light conditions (if you stay long enough) and excellent street photography.
Where will we meet?
We will meet outside Brioche Urban Eatery....then head off....there is a walkway through La Magasin with quick access back to Water Street....this event is over 3 hours long...stay as long as you want.
How do I get there?
You can catch a bus, the seabus or skytrain. Check your route details on Google Map or at www.translink.ca. You can also drive.....for information on downtown parking lots.....www.bestparking.com/vancouver-parking
We are enthusiastic about photography and lovers of the City of Vancouver and the GVRD....however we are not qualified to answer any technical questions you may have...there may be more skilled members participating on the walk to answer your questions...if not Barry J. Brady has kindly offered to answer any questions by email.
AT ALL TIMES, PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF YOURSELF AND YOUR FELLOW PHOTO WALKERS, YOUR PROPERTY AND YOUR SURROUNDINGS!
AFTER THE MEET-UP DON'T FORGET TO UPLOAD UP TO EIGHT OF YOUR BEST IMAGES. Any more than 8 per person will be removed.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
