Sometimes the Clients You Don’t Book Share with You the Highest Regards… San Francisco Bay Area Family Photography Surprises and Delights
How to flatter your would-be photographer… It’s been a while since I blogged a personal story, and this was one of those “have to write about this” opportunities.
This is our office, our place of business, our boardroom, our City.
Not bad for just looking out the window at sunset. I love this place.
A Foggy San Francisco Sunset | View of the Golden Gate Bridge and the City
Sunday May 27, 2012 marked the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. In celebration of this American icon, there was a whole day of celebration at key sites along the waterfront along the San Francisco Bay and plenty of revelry around the city. The most exciting of which, were the 75th anniversary fireworks show! It was super special as they organizers added a special dose of a fantastic light show to go along with the fireworks. We had a key vantage point from the top of Nob Hill, and of course my camera, tripod and I happily joined in the celebration. Here’s my ode to this amazing icon of San Francisco, America and human ingenuity! Happy Anniversary GGB!
See all the juicy details in my previous blog post about the solo gallery show of my landscape photographs being shown at Whitetail Wine Bar here: https://nialldavid.com/blog/solo-gallery-show-at-whitetail-wine-bar-in-guerneville-ca-throughout-the-month-of-may/.
If you can’t make the trip to Russian River Valley wine country to visit Whitetail before we take down the show, take a virtual look at the gallery through images captured at the opening below, or see some of the images on Facebook.
Spent a little time on the Santa Monica Pier while visiting some friends in Culver City in Los Angeles this summer. I love this pier because not only is a classic boardwalk with a great history, but it’s got the fantastic family amusement park, Pacific Park, right on the pier. Since we hit the place in broad summertime 12-noon sunlight I decided to make 3-7 captures 1-stop apart for each photo I wanted to make as we wandered the pier. There’s so much character in the buildings, structures, art, and people on the pier, it’s hard not to want to photograph…
On a lonely foggy eve, I stumbled into Fort Point National Historic Site and the archway truss of the Golden Gate Bridge. From Fort Point you get an original view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay. It’s pretty unreal down there, and very easy to get to. I wish the building at the point was open, and it’d be cool to wander closer to the bridge, but it’s gated off pretty well (the first shot here is actually taken with the camera lens poking through the hole in the fence). I’ve seen some photogs get…
This was one of those sunsets you can’t believe you got to witness and all you have to do is look out the window. JPEG file straight from the camera. I love when I don’t have to process an image 🙂
This past weekend I was honored to host as the City Representative for Zack Arias‘ One Light Workshop here in San Francisco. Repping meant organizing and booking the studio, models, food, catering, supplies and other logistics. Though I understand more now why good planners are well paid for taking care of business, it was more than worth the adventure to become part of the experience at this incredible workshop. If you know anything about me, you know that Zack is one of my icons of photography, so you know I was living on cloud 9 all weekend. He is a…
A few images from a recent jaunt and scouting trip in San Francisco’s Central Waterfront, Dogpatch, Bayview, and Hunter’s Point neighborhoods. I love the industrial feel of these places and definitely expect to use every little nook and cranny at some point for some really cool gritty photoshoot locations. Broken down rusty truck trailers, decommissioned factories, rotting buildings and shipyards abound. It’s a treat for the urban/industrial decay connoisseur. See the full gallery here.
