To:      All My Friends and Fellow Photography Enthusiasts 

From:  Joe Lippeatt - HoustonPhotowalks and 24Moves.com

I invite you to join me on the HoustonPhotowalks Pacific Coastal Cruise By Land & By Sea, April 28 - May 6, 2018.

We'll have fun and photo workshops on the Island Princess, a photowalk in Victoria, topped by FOUR  days exploring the amazing landscapes of  Vancouver with our own personal photographer guide.

HoustonPhotowalks is a fun-loving group of amateur and professional photographers.  I organized this group in 2009 and we simply LOVE getting together to explore our love of photography.  

Together with Dancing Moon Travel in Atlanta, Georgia I have arranged to make this a VERY special, can't miss photographers "event".  You do not need to be a member of Houston Photowalks to enjoy this very special photo excursion...so grab your camera and join us! This will definitely be the photographic event of 2018!!  

Space is EXTREMELY limited.
Maximum group size: 24 photographers !! 
This journey will sell out VERY QUICKLY.

Victoria, British Columbia Photowalk
In port from 8am - 11pm

A perfect balance of time to explore your own interests and a 5-hour sunset local guided sunset photowalk of charming Victoria.   At your option -- visit famous Butchart Gardens, Hatley Castle or Fort Rudd -- or take a whale and eagle spotting expedition -- the first part of the day is all yours.   Later, we meet our guide for a 5-hour twilight photowalk of the stunning downtown landscapes of this beautiful city. We'll be in port from 8am - 11pm.


Wednesday, May 2 - Saturday, May 5
Vancouver, British Columbia

The beautiful Park Inn & Suites by Radisson will be our home base for the next four days as we explore Vancouver and the surrounding area. Vancouver is a veritable photographer's paradise.  Whatever your passion, you will have the opportunity to indulge in this unique destination -- endless urban landscapes, parks, street photography, gardens, and architecture -- graffiti alleys -- waterfront vistas -- and on into the surrounding countryside for cool mountain vistas and stunning waterfalls.
