The Golden Gate Bridge is a Bay Area symbol, an engineering wonder & the most photogenic structure in San Francisco. As a resident photographer at Light, I’ll show you my favorite angles, vantage points, and teach you a few camera techniques for capturing the ever-changing personalities of the bridge on this photowalk. So whether you're using a Light L16 camera, DSLR, or your phone, we'll snap postcard-worthy photos and discuss the bridge’s art deco aesthetic, historical significance, and the reason why its construction nearly failed.
Hi, I'm Brian! I'm a photographer based in San Francisco. I originally hail from Pennsylvania, but have called California my home for the past five years. A recent graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute with a degree in photography, I now work at Light, the creator of the L16 Camera - which features 16 lenses in one compact frame. When I'm not out shooting with the L16, you can find me on a road trip, traveling, playing guitar, hiking, photographing deep space objects through my telescope, or catching up on the latest astronomy and camera news.
We’ll kick off our photo walk at Fort Point, the 19th-century U.S. Army stronghold designed to protect the Bay.

I’ve lived in San Francisco for over 10 years and I’d never been to many of these spots. I have a new appreciation for our iconic bridge and a bunch of great photos it it in all her glory. Thanks Light! 🙏
