Experience the sights, sounds, and smells of San Francisco from the point of view of a travel photographer & blogger & local resident.
Hello visitors to San Francisco. My name is Elle Gamboa, your San Francisco photo tour guide. I have been asked by many photographers & first time visitor to S.F. Bay area on where to go. So here is my list of recommended shooting locations.
Transportation Recommendations ( for longer tours ):
On my 4-hour walking photos tours. a car is not required and all you need are good walking shoes and a light sweater for July weather ( it get’s chilly late afternoons & evenings ). On longer tours, we do a combination of walking and Uber/Lyft ( fee paid by client). For example instead of walking 30 minutes to the Marin County site of Golden Gate Bridge from the south site. From experience, it’s a lot easier to take the San Francisco Muni Bus, the Cable Car, or the Street Car. Just to let you know, San Francisco is 5th worst city in the world for traffic congestion and parking is horrendous. Average parking tickets are $ 100 and red light tickets are $ 500.
