Smartphone Citywalks

Choose from these three stunning walks that guarantee superb photos!

Industrial Walk

This route leads you to the IJ, the river that separates Amsterdam Center from Amsterdam-Noord. Large ships and heavy industrial architecture alternate with modern construction and long quays. This route is perfect for people who love black and white photography and strong compositions in which clean lines play a dominant role. From Felix Meritis you can start this route within a 15 minute walk to the free ferry across the IJ at Amsterdam Central, on which your Industrial Walk already begins.

Red Light Walk

The famous and infamous Red Light District of Amsterdam! The beating heart of tourism in this old world city. Amsterdam once started here and you can still see that in the beautiful architecture and the houses that sometimes go back to the 11th century! The people of Amsterdam and the reportage style are central on this route. In the narrow alleys of the Red Light District you will encounter typical Amsterdam scenes and on the canals boats sail and swans swim. A 10-minute walk from Felix Meritis you can see Amsterdam in all its glory.

Canal Walk

Walk out of the door at Felix Meritis and immediately find yourself on one of the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam: the Keizersgracht! From here you walk via Herengracht, Leidsegracht and Prinsengracht towards the serene Amstel river. The fantastic buildings and magical canals with their houseboats guarantee special photos. The entire route is packed with curious little shops and Amsterdammers who are busy with their daily chores in ‘the 9 Streets’. Aesthetic photography at its best!

I really like the class and the energy you bring into it. I really appreciate this activity with the team and participate gladly

I really enjoyed participating, being triggered to think carefully about your choices. I'm sure my vacation albums are going to be a bit nicer after PhotoClass!

The best thing about the assignment was asking permission. In conversation with each other. People are happy and open. So personal connection. Equipment used: Huawei mobile phone.
