On Our Radar: Capture the natural beauty of Port Moody's Rocky Point Park

Professional photographers are set to lead a free guided tour of the popular Port Moody park this weekend.
Rocky Point Park's famous water dock stretches out into the Burrard Inlet bordering Port Moody.

Anyone can be a photographer — especially with that 12 megapixel camera on your new smartphone.

And many Tri-Cities residents fancy themselves as amateur or budding photographers regardless of which mobile device, DSLR, GoPro or other camera gear they have.

Those wishing to harness their skills even further are being invited to join a free walking tour this weekend at one of the region's scenic outdoor destinations.

Experts from Sony are hosting a landscape photography photo walk at Rocky Point Park (2800 Murray St.) in Port Moody on Saturday (May 20).

It's part of Photo Month at London Drugs, which has hosted other similar events across Canada in May.

"Turnout has been really good," said Sony photo expert Jin Cheong in a statement to the Tri-City News.

"Participants with all skill levels and different gear are sharing ideas, different ways to shoot, and are all learning from each other."

Popular Rocky Point Park photo-ops include at the end of the boat dock, from the performance stage, along the Shoreline Trail or from the middle of the Burrard Inlet.

The free photo walk, organized by London Drugs representatives at its Coquitlam Centre and Lougheed mall locations, is scheduled for May 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Residents of all skill levels wishing to attend are asked to meet at the picnic shelter in the main area of Rocky Point Park.
