San Francisco photography workshop

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 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 are venturing into new closely tied, interesting neighborhoods.

The highlights of the  San Francisco photography workshop include 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. You will have a chance to photograph street musicians all through the city and capture restored cable cars and trollies throughout. These remnants of the old days make this modern city feel like it’s encased in an antique patina. San Francisco is a joy to navigate for the imaginative street and architectural photographer.

You will photograph Nob Hill, with its graceful turn of the century homes climbing the steep streets and 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 its historic relics of the 1960’s.

Our class discussions cover the most up to date techniques on how to best use single focus lenses. We also teach you how to handle your camera to capture the best images in tightly woven neighborhoods.

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

This photography workshop is taught by our two expert instructors, who are professional photographers with years of applied photographic and travel experience under their belts. This San Francisco photography workshop will take you and your photographic creativity to a higher level. Color and Black and White processes are covered as well. This is a walking and public transportation workshop. You must be in good physical condition for your age to participate.

Our San Francisco Photography workshop is open to all photographers with a digital SLR or an iPhone / Smartphone.
