FAQ:
  • Are the tours private? 
    • No, but private tours can be arranged for $460.00 per session. There is a maximum of four members available for the tours. Usually most tours only include one or two photographers.
  • What does the tour include?
    • Tripods and remotes are available at no extra charge. Remotes are fit for Nikon only, but the timer on cameras are sufficient.
  • What clothing should I bring?
    • The weather can be chilly. Bring a jacket, a knit cap and , if possible, light gloves. We have jackets in Men’s medium for use if needed. Shoes are important. Hiking shoes are preferred or cross training shoes.
  • Is there hiking involved?
    • Some short walks to the location. If you have any back or knee issues, please let us know and we will eliminate that part of the tour. The Sunset tour may (weather depending) include a set of long stairs to Baker beach. Again, if this presents a problem we can walk in from the beach parking lot.
  • How long are the tours?
    • The Sunrise tour starts before dawn. The Sunset Tour starts an hour before Sunset. Both tours last about 4 hours.
  • What locations will we shoot?
    • The Golden Gate Bridge is the main focus with several iconic places in the city. They are listed on our website.
  • What skill level is required?
    • The only requirement is that you have a camera and know the basics. If you do not have a camera, we can lend you one. All you need is a memory card.  We coach, if needed, to get the right settings. If your camera is new to you, we suggest tips on http://www.mattk.com  or sign up for Kelby One   http://kelbyone.com.
  • What if the weather is not suitable for photography on the day I am scheduled to shoot?
    • We can reschedule or cancel. No deposit or penalty is stipulated for the tours.
  • How do I pay? 
    • You pay at the end of the session(s). We take MC, Visa, AMX or cash. Most international credit cards work fine. If you need cash, we can take you to an ATM for payment. Cards with digital chips work best.
  • Are you shooting with the clients?
    • No. I generally do not shoot, but bring a camera if we need to take readings and see what setting are best.
  • Are there multiple day tours available?
    • Yes. With so many locations in the SanFrancisco  Bay Area that are spectacular for photography, we have many places to fill up additional days.
  • Do you pick up and drop off?
    • Yes, if you are in San Francisco proper. If you are in the East Bay or South Bay, we pick up at the nearest BART station.
  • Do I need to bring water and food?
    • No. We provide water and energy bars, but it is suggested you have a meal before the Sunset Tour, as restaurants close around our finishing time.
  • Can I bring a non-shooter as a “ride along”?
    • Yes, if space allows. There is no charge.
