Jonathan Mandel attributes much of his current success as a photographer to the people who gave him his start at 8 years old. There was Mr. King, his photography teacher, who taught him how to develop pictures. And his father, who gave him his first camera and patiently allowed a bathroom in their apartment to become a darkroom. That was a while ago, and yet something he learned early on still lives on in Jonathan's work today: a sense of discovery and play. His clients often credit the visual artist with making his sessions fun, bringing out natural moments, and demonstrating a rare talent for steadying a tripod inside a bouncy castle. Whether capturing happy families for portraits or documenting wedding days, his unique eye for light casts each shot in unexpected, striking tones.

Cruise around the city while brushing up on basic camera skills and honing an eye for composition during a two-hour photography workshop led by professional photon-wrangler John Ater, who has shot for the likes of Modern Luxury magazine and Dillard's. The workshop requires snap-happy shutterbugs to bring their own personal cameras, which may include traditional point-and-shooters, digital SLRs, or parlor-sized camerae obscurae. During the course of the photo trek, students are guided through the Mission, the Castro, the Embarcadero, or Chinatown, so comfortable clothes, shoes, and tracking devices are highly suggested. Check out the FAQs and view the current schedule and sign up for the workshop online.
