Travel Photography Workshop: SF's Mission District
Note: You may RSVP to this Meetup event, but you must register and pay via the Airbnb Experiences page here: Join a professional travel photographer as we explore one of SF's last remaining true neighborhoods for a fun photo workshop filled with historic, architectural, artistic, and cultural attractions. The Mission District, named for the Spanish mission built there in 1776, is a vibrant Latino neighborhood that in recent years has undergone some gentrification, overlaying a hipster vibe on top of the still strong bedrock community. We approach our exploration as true travel photographers, not as tourists seeking "postcard shots". I'll share my award-winning tips and tricks to help you capture amazing images regardless of your experience level. The skills we practice today--covering many photographic genres including architectural, cityscapes, street, and portraiture--will give you a toolkit to draw from during your future travels. We seek a "sense of place" that roots our images to the place and the people we meet. In the middle of our walk, we rest our feet at a local cafe for an included coffee drink and the chance to review some of our photos. Our small group size allows for plenty of interaction and the chance to get your questions answered. Guests should be prepared to walk about 3 miles, including some hills. Bring your gear (any kind of camera or phone) with a fully charged battery and memory card with room to spare for your photos. We'll visit and photograph these Mission District locations: - Misión San Francisco de Asís (Mission Dolores) - Clarion Alley Murals - The Women's Building - Dolores Park We stop along the way at a local cafe for an included coffee drink and photo review (and restrooms).

What we're about

Love to explore the world through a lens? Do you strive to capture authentic images of the people and places you visit? Excited about using your camera to build bridges across diverse cultures? Want to continually improve your photography in all genres? Then this meetup is for you!

Travel photography is thrilling because it's about discovery and adventure. Whether we're halfway around the world or a few short blocks from our home, our camera is a tool to capture the spirit of the places we visit and to share that spirit with our community. The travel photographer must be versatile, switching effortlessly among many genres including landscape, wildlife, cityscape, portrait, performing arts, nighttime, and street photography. Share your passion for travel photography with other like-minded enthusiasts, and build your skills in a supportive community.

We'll connect and learn in a variety of different ways. Whether through photo walks, hands-on workshops, classes, exhibitions, and photography tours to locations around the world, our goal will always be to fuel our passion for travel photography as we grow our skills. Please join us!
