Out + About
Along with excellent Bay Area photographer and educator, Doug Kaye, I am thrilled to be leading my first Photowalk – yes, in my 5 years working as a pro photog!
Join us for a scenic walk through and around Golden Gate Park, one of the most visited city parks in the U.S. and home to gorgeous architecture and picturesque naturescapes. This will be an easy trail meandering around famous city landmarks, such as the De Young Museum and the Japanese Tea Garden.
You will get wonderful opportunities to capture a diverse range of images of fine architecture, buildings, flowers, trees, people and nature. Of course, Doug and I will be on hand to dole out tips on technique and style and share our real world experiences.
MEETING LOCATION & TIME
Sunday, October 2nd (03:45pm – 06:00pm)
Location: At the entrance of the Japanese Tea Garden
After the walk, meet at: Drinks at Little Shamrock on 807 Lincoln Way!
• Japanese Tea Garden. We will meet at the entrance at 3.45 p.m. There is an admission fee of $5 to enter the garden.
• De Young Museum complex
• Music Concourse Bandshell
• California Academy of Sciences
• Shakespeare Garden
We will select exceptional photographs taken during the Photowalk based on their technique, composition, impact, creativity and visual appeal. The winning images will be published on Catherine Hall Studios blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+!
The weather in San Francisco can change at the drop of a hat, so be sure to dress in layers or to bring a jacket just in case. Wear comfortable shoes that you won’t mind getting dirty (there’s a chance we may go off the path in the park for a bit). You also may want to wear sunscreen, and bring a hat and/or a pair of sunglasses as we will be working with the evening light and sunset.
GETTING TO GOLDEN GATE PARK
Parking can be a challenge in the weekends in San Francisco. You may wish to consider carpooling with another participant of our Photowalk or commuting to the Park via public transportation.

The WPPI is always a fun week for me – seeing old friends, playing with new toys from awesome companies, judging albums and discovering new artists. This year, it will be especially fun, because I have the chance to learn the secrets of success from other top women photographers!
I am part of an amazing group the WPPI dubbed “top women in professional photography” that will be discussing how we have succeeded in an extremely competitive market. Don’t miss tips, ideas and philosophies from Lindsay Adler, Jules Bianchi and Joy Bianchi Brown, Jessica Claire, Kay Eskridge, Sarah Petty, Dawn Shields and Jasmine Star. And me, of course!
I am so honored to join them and those of you attending to talk about the challenges facing women in photography today as well as how to emerge as notable leaders in our extremely competitive field.
If you see me at the WPPI, please say hi! I’d love to connect with you. My schedule is as follows, but it’s not just all work; I’ll be at many of the fun parties of course!

Leather Craftsmen Booth
Women of the 40s – with their picture-perfect luscious curls, blood red lips, porcelain complexion – always represented to me the dawning of the strong, independent female. Despite their stark silhouettes, these women embodied the feminine, bringing the sexy to boxy, shoulder-padded jackets and knee-length skirts. They also inspired iconic starlets, such as Bettie Page or Dita Von Teese.
Inspired by high-society women during World War II, I recently completed a passion project with a talented Bay Area crew who volunteered services on hair, make-up, wardrobe, styling and art direction. Thanks to the collective effort, we recreated a series of images reminiscent of the 40s. I promise to post the images soon and I’m excited for you to tell me what you think!

At the PDN PhotoPlus Conference and Expo 2010, I dropped by Epson’s booth to check out my new-favorite Exhibition Canvas Satin, on which they featured some of my wedding-photography images (look in the upper, right-hand corner of this picture to view the goods!).
It’s been under wraps long enough. Epson will soon release its Exhibition Canvas Satin, one of its specialty, signature-worthy papers the company is promoting in conjunction with some of its favorite photographers. I am completely blown away and humbled to be included in this elite group. I’m going to keep you guessing for now, but they include some very, very awesome (and famous!) people.
So, what does it all mean? Aside from decorating my studio with images printed on the new canvas, my wedding art is also the focus of a short Epson promo, which was filmed right here in my San Francisco studio. Look out for more details about the film in another blog post!
