Upcoming Field Trips (with Social Distancing)

 

March 2021

Join us for a late afternoon shoot at the Albany Bulb where there is plenty to see and photograph. Located on the Albany shoreline behind the Golden Gate Fields racetrack you’ll see shorebirds, lots of urban art and a great views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge - wonderful for sunset!  Take the Buchanan Street exit just north of the Interstate 80/580 split, then head west on the extension to the parking area.
