What you'll learn in this on location photography class:

Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate photographer, this workshop covers a variety of photography locations sure to teach you more about how to use your camera, how to get better images, and send you home with many new photos to be proud of!

The Golden Gate Bridge is the most recognizable structure in the west, which is why our San Francisco/Marin Headlands workshop begins and ends by photographing this amazing icon. Come spend a day shooting the "City by the Bay" from some of its best vantage points.

We'll start with a brief orientation in the Battery Godfrey parking lot. The afternoon is spent working in a variety of lighting situations and creative compositions at the incredible Battery Godfrey, which also provides more amazing views of the Golden Gate!

The afternoon is spent shooting the city from the Marin Headlands as we make our way to Rodeo Beach, to photograph the sea stacks as the sun goes down! Our last stop is the most breathtaking view of the Golden Gate the area has to offer, and we will make sure everyone comes away with that postcard-perfect image of the Golden Gate glowing over the bay as the city of San Francisco sparkles in the background.

This workshop is one of our most popular, and a perfect opportunity for beginners and intermediate photographers to hone their composition skills, learn about their cameras, and work with a variety of filters to help balance an area filled with both natural, and man-made wonders!

First we'll tell you what we are NOT about... we aren't going to lead you on a cookie cutter, photography-in-a-can style photo tour where the instructor is off taking his own pictures while students are left to their own luck hoping they can capture a good image. Our instructors don't focus on their...
