I live in the dog patch (east of potrero hill) There are some great abandoned warehouses, old buildings, etc. Let's capture them before they are turned into condos!

Bring your bicycle and camera and water. I'll be playing with long exposures and filters. So maybe bring your tripod too.

Meet for Coffee at 3 and then off on our bicycles bout 3:30

    I had a great time exploring the Dogpatch. I really like the look of the place. It was also nice to meet some other photographers.

    Just finished. Thanks to Ling, Sonny, Shelly, and Angel for attending. It was really fun and inspiring to do a photo walk with other photographers. I usually go solo. Like my next event suggestion so we can plan it out eh? I've got a horse head mask and unicorn mask on order. It will be a hoot!

    October 25, 2012

    • Elise

      Ya I'm still going. See you at 3. I'll be on a black schwinn, I put a yellow polka dot scarf on my rear basket

    Hi guys n gals. I've got two maps printed, email me if you want a pdf copy of your own. These are just google maps to write on. But I have two extras to share on site. I thought maybe we could go from the south and head north up Illinois so head towards 25th, and come back towards 18th, ending at "The Ramp" bar for a pint or food just before dark (or 6ish). There is an awesome house that has been dumped there, and is falling into the bay. Perty cool shots to end the day with and get some long exposures as the sun sets.

    I'm a cyclist but I don't want to bike in SF. Frankly, I think it is too dangerous. I'll be walking too.

      Elise, that's good to know but since everyone else seems to be walking, I think I'll join that group. Would a car work or is the parking too challenging?

      October 23, 2012

    • Elise

      Ya cars will work too, there's plenty of parking

      October 23, 2012

  • Tom & Marj G.

    Marco - Tom & I don't ride bicycles. From your description, we would love to photograph in Dogpatch. Would you be able to share your route with us? Marj

    Hello guys, I want a photo session of myself at some beautiful and unusual places in a Bay area :-). I would like to get somebody of you as a photographer for this. If you are interested in practice of this kind (the only reward is a good time) please email me!

    Who's biking? Anyone?

    October 23, 2012

  • Tom & Marj G.

    I thought Pier 70 had a locked gate. Will the group be ale to get on it or just shoot from a distance? Marj

  • Sonny P.

    Thanks Elise if you print the route for walkers. I ggogled Dogpatch and these are possible photo ops: old ship yards Pier 70, Hells Angels, boxing gym, Victorian houses, oldest school Irving Scott. I personally would want to meet the Hells Angels to photograph them and their Harleys. Can somebody provide me a personal introduction?

    October 23, 2012

    • Elise

      I'm a biker, I respect the hells angels WAY too much to ask to photograph them like exhibits. ;-) And I dont think they appreciate peeps taking pics outside. You've been warned. Other than that ya, there are some great things to wonder and shoot. Just note that it's a working hood, so some streets will be closed or busy with trucks etc. Ooo the boxing gym would be cool! I'm gonna shoot outdoors, but feel free to shoot inside the gym, I'm not rigid or all "planny plan stick to it". I will have several maps printed, and the leader of the walkers can decide on where to go. I'll take the bicyclers, if any.

      October 23, 2012

  • Elise

    Cool, 12 already? I'll have a map printed for the walkers, those on bikes can follow me and the walkers can make their own group. And we can rendevous if peeps want to. Will be great to see the different photos from each group.

    Like Angel, Tom, & Marj, I too don't own a bike but are hoping to join. Is it far to walk instead from the coffee bar to the site? Or could the organizer create two groups: walkers and bikers?

    October 21, 2012

    • Elise

      Sure, just meet me at the coffee shop and we can go round the dog patch you all can meet me on foot. I was just going to wander and see what strikes our fancy. Bikes tend to do that faster but you can come on foot too.

    Wish I could go. I'm in school.
