Vancouver, with its scenic views, mild climate and friendly inhabitants make it one of my favorite North American cities for shoots. A coastal seaport, it is surrounded on three sides by water & breath-taking mountains in the distance. The variety of locations make it an ideal shoot destination. On offer is everything from mountain peaks, lush parks & waterfronts to urban cityscapes. Talent is ethnically & linguistically diverse and in my experience, the crews have always been super-friendly (in that almost stereotypically Canadian way) & top-notch.
Vancouver is a nature-lover's paradise. Explore Stanley park, the 1,000 acre public park directly near the city's downtown.
Take a scenic ferry past colorful houseboats and head to Granville Island to the Public Market for an array of food vendors.
Check out the cobblestone streets, beautiful brick buildings & eclectic offerings of Gastown, one of Vancouver's oldest neighborhoods. Downtown Eastside, Chinatown & the Gastown neighborhoods all offer a vibrant community with a variety of shops, galleries & eateries.
