Magnificent Yaletown

  • This location is shown only to members

Yaletown is a unique district in Vancouver. There are plenty of brick buildings and elevated sidewalks. The area was home to railway sheds and warehouses but today is an upmarket neighbourhood with great boutique stores and beautiful architecture. 

On this photowalk you are welcome to bring any camera you like, if the only camera you have is a cameraphone, come along! You can (and should) bring your DSLR or any other camera and bring some additional lenses too, there will be lots of photo opportunities.

Where will we meet?

We will meet in front of the Terry Fox statue at the front entrance to BC Place. 

How do I get there?

You can catch a bus, skytrain or drive there. Check your route details on Google Maps!

What else should I bring?

Warm clothes - it might be cool in the afternoon 
Good walking shoes 
Camera and lenses

Where will we meet for coffee?

We will grab a coffee at JJ Bean on 402 Davie Street. 

Looking forward to seeing you there

Barry

    Great! Was a wonderful evening Barry. Gave me a chance to talk to some really nice folks, and get better acquainted with Yaletown on a beautiful evening. Thank you for organizing.
    Kind regards

    The totally chill dudes at the firehall sent me their email. [masked]. If you have pictures of them, consider sending them a link. I'm thinking of putting the pictures on Flickr with the tag "firehall08-Vancouver".

    To the group of late arrivals that made their own group - it was good meeting you all! I bailed early to eat pizza and do a time lapse on the bridge but I'll share my photos here soon. If you hear of any more great photo walks let me know[masked]

    Another new member. Looking to get out, be sociable and using my camera again. (not done much since my 365 last year) . 99% sure I can make this one, I signed up especially for it. Hope to see you Saturday.

    Awesome response to this photo walk! This is just a "friendly" reminder to contribute your voluntary annual donation of $10 if you haven't done so already. So many of us get such enjoyment out of these adventures and its not fair that Barry is covering the cost of that enjoyment...(there is a fee for having a meet-up group)... so scroll up the page and look to the left...you can contribute by pay-pal, or you can give Barry or any of the other organizers cash on Saturday.......see you there!
