1-On-1 & Small Group San Francisco Photography Workshop

Join me on an afternoon/sunset photo shoot where we can explore, scout and I can teach you all of my shooting techniques. Each class is tailor made to exactly on what you would like to learn and what subject you are looking to capture. Some popular options are Seascapes, Fog Photography and Coastal Abstracts. Each session lasts about 5 hours. If you have a specific request that does not involve sunset, please let me know and I would be happy to accommodate. Some places we can explore/shoot are Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, San Francisco & Marin County

Private San Francisco Photography Workshop

Each Evening Photography Workshop Session lasts about 5 Hours and is $800 in total. You can also add up to 2 more participants for +$300 per person.

 
To Schedule a session, please email me directly here: shainblumphoto@gmail.com
 

The $800 fee also accounts for the hours I put into pre-production/research/planning for our day as well as the 1-2 hours of driving that is required before & after each workshop.

How It Works

  • We will first schedule a phone call to review all the details and potential subjects you would like to shoot. I will then make a custom workshop/location plan for us, accounting for the weather and conditions. 
  •  We will meet up at a location that is convenient to reach. From there, I can drive us from location to location. Or we will be doing short walks in-between spots. This is also an excellent way for us to chat about anything you would like related to photography. 
  • Once we arrive at our first location, we can cover scouting, planning, and capture some afternoon light.
  • Depending on the time between locations, we may be able to visit more than one before our sunset spot.
  • Before sunset, we will make sure to be in a spot ready to capture the light at a new location.
  • After sunset, we will stay out capturing twilight, blue hour, and potentially some night photography.
