Are you looking for inspiration and great locations for night photography? Need some new long exposure photography tips? Just want to get out of the house and photograph for a few hours? Join us for one—or all!—of our Night Photography Workshops. Locations include Sutro Baths, Old St. Hilary’s Historic Preserve, Mount Tamalpais (Mt. Tam), Chinatown, and the Ferris Wheel at Golden Gate Park.

On the Wednesday before each Night Photography location shoot, there will be a 30-minute Zoom pre-outing discussion where we will go over gear, expectations, and layout of the location.

On the specified Sunday, we will meet at each predetermined location for the photo excursion.

Everyone will be able to photograph at their own pace, while our instructor goes to each individual offering help and tips with your night photography settings. Masks are required for Covid-19 safety.

Following the excursion, we will hold a group critique via Zoom on the specified Thursday evening to share your best photos with everyone in the workshop.
