Marin Headlands Landscape Photography Workshop Meetup Information
Date: August 11, 2010
Time: 1:00 PM
Welcome fellow photographers,
Thank you for signing up for the workshop. Marin Headlands is a wild and beautiful location with high coastal bluffs overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. There are plenty of photo opportunities from seascapes to urban decay/graffiti. We will try to get as much in as possible and end up at Battery Spencer for some night photos of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Attached is the information for where to meet and what to bring. Several participants have asked about carpooling. If you are interested in carpooling check for messages in the comments under this meetup or post a message yourself so that someone can contact you if they are interested. Once we arrive at Fort Baker I recommend that we arrange carpools for around Marin Headlands to make transportation and parking easier.
This heat wave is supposed to pass, thank goodness and the weather should be great.
We will be meeting at 1 PM in the parking lot across the street from the Bay Area Discovery Museum (see map below with circle and arrow following the driving instructions). If you need to call me my cell number is 510-364-9499.
