The Painted Ladies are a wonderful row of victorian houses photographed here by Mark Jansen in San Franciso

San Francisco is an amazing photographic destination. With the new Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate that anchors the gateway to the Pacific, this place, along with its Victorian homes, thrives in restored elegance in diverse neighborhoods perched along dramatically steep streets.  

The San Francisco City and Street Photography workshop will give you a whole new photographic vantage point of this incredible destination.

Each day you’ll be assigned a different task as we venture into closely tied, interesting neighborhoods, highlighted by the bustling Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf with its exotic ornamentations. The streets of San Francisco have many opportunities to capture craftsman practicing their daily trades.

We’ll venture into the farmers market at the Ferry building packed with bustling vendors of all kinds. Street musicians abound all through the city and restored cable cars and trollies run throughout, making this modern city seem like it’s encased in a patina of old. San Francisco is a joy to navigate for the imaginative street and architectural photographer.

San Franciso is a great place for street photography. Enjoy the great underground Barbershop photographed by Mark Jansen in Chinatown.
Nob Hill, with its graceful turn of the century homes climb the steep streets providing amazing views of historical Lombard Street, Coit Tower, and Alcatraz Island anchored in San Francisco Bay. We will be exploring the inner and outer architecture of the city.

For late afternoon, we will shoot the Victorian “Painted Ladies” and spend time in the famous Haight-Ashbury neighborhood with it’s historic relics of the 1960’s.

Our class discussions will be centered on the best techniques on how to best use single focus lenses and how to best handle your camera to the best advantage in tightly woven neighborhoods.

As with all our workshops, Digital SLR, Mirrorless, Smart Phone and Analog 35mm Film Photographers are welcome!

All of this taught by our two expert instructors, who are professional photographers with years of applied photographic and travel experience under their belts.
