Photo Walks

Registrations begin May 6th!

This may be what we do best. Every year we host free photo walks every day of the festival in different neighborhoods throughout the city, and we get fantastic feedback about them. This year we’re adding more. We’ll have the signup page ready soon.

Places to Shoot

We’ll show you all over town with our free photo walks, but if you’re itching to go it alone (as a lot of us are), find lots of people on the streets in these areas:

  • Market Street from Civic Center to the Embarcadero
  • Union Square
  • Financial District
  • Embarcadero
  • Chinatown
  • Haight Street near Golden Gate Park on 6/10 (for the Haight Street Fair)
