Join My First Photowalk at Golden Gate Park!
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!

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.
