A picture taken by Rey Rey is one that tells a unique story. As an artist, his passion, kindness and easy going nature make people feel relaxed and comfortable, allowing him to capture the purest essence and true personality of his subject.
A photo by Rey Rey is one that will be cherished for a lifetime.
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.
Having shot more than 30,000 subjects throughout his career as a photographer, including many Silicon Valley business figures, Eric Gould understands how to create a good photo in any setting. His adeptness at communicating with subjects carries into his photography workshops, where he conveys difficult concepts clearly and methodically, saving students from such rookie mistakes as shooting with the lens cap on or turning the flash on while taking pictures of your imaginary friend's third grade graduation. In his own photo sessions, he frames professional clients in business portraits and headshots, high-school seniors in youthful poses, athletes in midaction, and a wide spectrum of people and places encountered on international travels.
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.

Isla Studio's professional photographers expresses the world and its people through richly colored fine-art images. Whether dealing with landscapes, buildings, portraits, or UFOs, the team waits for a moment to reveal itself, combining the timing of photojournalism with a carefully considered emotional resonance. They also expand the shutter-snapping community with small classes that explore the ins and outs of digital photography.
I'm a people photographer and my goal is to capture who you are, not just what you look like.
I have the knack of getting the most camera-phobic people to relax and be themselves. It's like getting candid photos by hiding in plain sight.
Although I'm based in SF, I travel far and wide.
Looking back, Mischa and Brianne Purcell seem destined to have become photographers: Mischa was bitten by the shutterbug at the age of 8, when a family friend and photography professor first introduced him to the camera lens. Brianne started even earlier—when she was just 7, she put a camera on her Christmas list right when Santa had just secured the rights to manufacture celluloid. All these years later, the Purcells’ love of the art form hasn’t waned. They bring their enthusiasm and smiles to important events in people’s lives, including weddings.
As Mischa puts it in a video on his website, “It’s a true honor to be paid to create art around people’s love stories. It’s the best thing I could ever imagine doing.” This genuine passion comes through in his photographs. To capture the essence of each couple, the photographer thinks outside of the box. Aside from photos at the church, Mischa might have newlyweds pose in front of old buildings, on a truck bed, or simply in front of a bright blue sky. The photographers extend this sort of creativity to other types of sessions. They can photograph families in fields dotted by wildflowers or stay in their studio to carefully capture senior portraits. Mischa also shares his expertise during workshops, which teach the ins and outs of photography and postproduction.

The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.

Helmed by photo instructor Hal “Bull” Schmitt, Light Photographic Workshops simplify Adobe programs with single-day, eight-hour sessions designed to turn Photoshop neophytes into pic-enhancing masters. The course will delve into Lightroom’s powerful, easy-to-use sliders, tools, and basic editing functions for removing apparitional pic crashers. Though not required, students are welcome to bring their Lightroom 3–equipped laptop to the class to follow along with the lesson plan or a notepad and quill pen to take notes. Upon completing the course, each student takes home an instructional DVD with more than 8 hours of material for multimedia reminders of the class’s subject matter and a 40 percent discount on their first fine art, photo, or fine-art gallery canvas wrap print order through Light Workshops. Students are encouraged to bring either a bagged lunch or lunch money to save personal computers and fellow students from accidental ingestions.
Doré Studio is the oldest photography studio in San Francisco.
Founded in 1951 by the mother of the current proprietor, the studio specializes in capturing life’s most important moments through modern digital imaging technology and a sense of old-school glamor. A vein of 1930s Hollywood runs through the in-house productions here, where divas lay on the divans as makeup artists prep them as if for a would be screen test. The studio also provides tuxes and formal wear for guys. Be it senior portraits, quinceañeras or nostalgic re-enactments of grainy, sepia-toned photos, Doré shows its clients in the best possible light.
The diners at iThai might just pick up a history lesson while deciding what to eat. In the menu, blurbs about the dishes lend insight to their flavors and how some fit into the culinary landscape. It states, for instance, that American-style fried rice—ketchup-fried rice with sausage, chicken, and fried egg—was first served to US Marines stationed in Thailand during World War II. Or, more recently, that CNN selected massaman curry—a dish iThai bulks up with boneless short ribs and potatoes—as the world’s most delicious food in 2011. Despite wading through history, though, the menu’s focus remains on flavor. Chefs take creative liberties with their dishes, crafting quirky categories such as I’m Adventurous and Gotta Have’em Entrees to introduce fried rice with crispy pork belly and wok-fried vegetables with oyster sauce, both of which leave mouths happier than Humpty Dumpty in a super-glue factory.
Teresa Kennett believe that species shouldn't be a factor when it comes to friendship. Rather, she delights in observing the bond between people and their pets, whether you own a dog, a cat, or even a parrot. At Pet Poses Photography, Teresa captures digital snapshots of owners and their animals sharing both close and silly moments. She'll also photograph pets by themselves, leading to beautiful basset-hound portraits and freeze-frames of cats getting excited playing with a catnip mouse.
Although photo booths add pizzazz to a party, they often come with a line of recent picture-takers waiting impatiently for their snapshots. In & Out Photo Booth gets guests back to the festivities with high-quality picture boxes that produce high-resolution prints in fewer than eight seconds, or the time it takes a hummingbird to recite the name of every US president. With service areas that stretch all along the California coast, In & Out Photo Booth plunks down its memory-making apparatuses at an array of events such as weddings, family reunions, and corporate shindigs.
