Photo ops for the serious photographer


A tour designed for the photographer who wants to get the best pictures in the shortest time. As a seasoned photographer, I have scouted out the best venues, angles, and vantage points for all of the hot spots in Ottawa. If you don't have the luxury of time to chase down the best spots, let me take you there. I have photographed in all seasons and in all light conditions. I will take you to Parliament Hill, the Market, the Sparks Street Mall, the Chaudiere Falls, the Experimental Farm, amongst other places. I will take you to the back area of the Supreme Court (great view of the Hill) and other places where tourists don't usually go. All you have to provide is your equipment. I can bring along a step ladder on the roof rack of my car. The ladder will aid you in getting the higher angle shots that ordinary pedestrians don't see. This is the ideal tour for events like the Ottawa Tulip Festival or Winterlude.
Of course you will also get the running commentary guided tour of the city as we go between sites.

Itinerary

Parliament Hill, the Experimental Farm, all of the sight lines toward Parliament, transport to the best venues. If you have any particular place you want to go to (e. g. the ornamental gardens at the Experimental Farm) just let me know.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Pick up at your hotel or location of your choice.

End location: Wherever requested: your hotel, the train station, airport, etc.

Duration: 7 hours

The tour can be as short or as long as you want. Start time is flexible. Price of the tour is based on time, at $80 per hour, so you can plan accordingly. We can even split the day so you can get early morning or evening light, or after dark pictures.

Transportation

I will provide transportation for up to 4 people in my Ford Escape.

What’s Included

Other: Transport to all the good venues. Tips on vantage points, admission to the War Museum if you wish some indoor shoots.
I can get free tickets to the Parliament Bldg tour.

What’s Extra

Other: Bring lunch money. I will cover the cost of gas and parking.

A Recent Review of this tour

I spent an extremely productive day with Conrad. He has extensive knowledge of great photo spots and the history of Ottawa. He is very courteous and helpful and goes out of the way to make things happen for the client in order that great photo opportunities arise through out the day. He picked me up at 5 am so that we would be on time for a sunrise ! And he is willing to go the extra mile to make superb photos happen. It was an excellent day spent taking photos to my heart's content with timely pointers
