Photograph the Golden Gate Bridge like you've never photographed it before!

Battery Spencer (http://www.nps.gov/goga/parkmgmt/fortbaker.htm) Kirby Cove (http://www.parksconservancy.org/visit/park-sites/kirby-cove.html) Baker Beach (http://www.parksconservancy.org/visit/park-sites/baker-beach.html) and nearby Sausalito (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=sausalito&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x8085845331c92675:0xb903aa6d828f51ee,Sausalito,+CA&gl=us&ei=5_NTTqKbHdGBsgKDuK2EBw&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CCgQ8gEwAA) Upon conclusion of photography, join Harold for a Dutch-treat dinner in Mill Valley to discuss the shoot.

Note: This workshop is being offered well in advance because it is timed according to sunset and moonrise, and to help you plan. Due to limited size, our experience is that it will fill up---in other words, to avoid disappointment please don't delay!

"The workshop was wonderful!!! Harold is a fantastic teacher and photographer. I love the small group size as it allows everyone to ask questions and get the help they need to learn." "Fun, informative, well organized. I had good time and got some great photos. Harold really knows where to go to get the shots you want." "Very helpful to have the evening planned on where to go and what settings might work." "Very enjoyable and informative session....Shooting the bridge after sunset resulted in spectacular images, as did the reflections of moonlight on the water." "What a great experience! The small group, the individual attention from Harold, the incredible locations, and to top it all off - the most perfect weather anyone could possibly want surrounding the Golden Gate Bridge. The entire event was so well organized and executed."
