A Field Photography Workshop

The Nitobe Memorial Garden is about a 2-acre traditional Japanese garden located at the University of British Columbia, just outside the city limits of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is part of the UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research.

The Nitobe Garden offers a year-long scenic landscape to photograph. Regardless of the time of the year, you can always find locations to capture fabulous images.

In this four-hour workshop, you learn how to spot a location, set up your camera, and use special techniques to enhance photos.

Your instructors, Ted Karlsalr and Brett Michaud teach you unique skills and tips to take amazing pictures and be proud of your achievements.

We pay the park admission fee.
