O que você fará

“Hike with Mike- Photography Excursions” are a discovery adventure! Discovering the beauty of the Okanagan Valley while also learning about yourself and how to improve your photography. We’ll meet at one of three scenic locations – Naramata Falls, Giant’s Head Mountain or Skaha Bluffs. We'll review your camera, talk about composing a photo, and find inspiration from the encompassing landscape to the smallest details. Mike (sometimes joined by Meghan) will be there by your side to guide you on the trails and through capturing your photographs. We will share insider knowledge of our stunning valley while shooting. Hikes are approximately 2.5-3 hours and although our focus (pun intended!) is on your photography education more so than site seeing, we’ll take you to some of coolest “off the beaten track” photographic hot spots in the Okanagan! Photography is about learning how to use your camera, finding unique subjects, capturing the moment and documenting your environment with an artistic eye and then sharing your art with others!
Meghan looks after your bookings and we are quite flexible, let us know a time & day and we can usually open a time slot for you to book. We'll confirm which location to meet at (1 of 3 pre-determined locations - only 1 per day). If you have a preference please let us know so we can coordinate with the group. We look forward to connecting with you!
Other things to note
Please bring a DSLR camera for the workshop/hike. The hikes are easy to moderate and guest's should be used to physical activity. A pre-activity screening Par-Q form will be sent out with the information package, please return it or bring it to the hike. Thank-you! Happy trails! :)

This was an absolutely horrible experience. I paid 198 for Mike to take photos of me and my son- we were visiting Penticton and instead of the “hike with mike” we asked if mike could do a photo shoot with us and take our photograph. As a single mom, it’s hard for me to get photos of myself and my son, so I thought this would be great to get some photos taken. Megan agreed they could do that for the $198 otherwise charged for the hike with Mike. I later received a link to the photos and an invoice which would charge me an additional $15 per photo and was advised that if I wanted any of the photos, I’d have to pay additional money for the photos - which means I paid 198 for the experience of having my photo taken. Later Megan said she’d include a few photos when I asked Airbnb for a refund as this was not agreed. Megan then blocked me when Airbnb did not do anything about the situation - so I have paid $198 for absolutely nothing, I don’t have one photo of my son and I and I paid $198 to meet with mike for 30 minutes while he took our photos- and never actually received even one photo. I’m very disappointed and this was just a horrible experience

An interesting afternoon with a professional photographer. I learned a few tricks on composition.
