A great way to see some of Stanley Park and learn about photography at the same time is to take a Photo Walk tour. These tours will usually take you into Stanley Park to take photos of some of the attractions.
You are usually required to bring your own camera, preferably a DSLR camera with zoom lens but smartphones are usually also allowed. Also, a tripod is usually recommended. You may be able to rent a camera and tripod, but that depends on the company. The guide will give you tips and guidance on how to take great photos in the particular environment.

Make sure that your camera batteries are fully charged BEFORE going on the tour!
