What you'll do

You'll learn how to take amazing photos even if you've never picked up a camera before. We'll meet in one landmark neighborhood and suddenly you'll discover the secrets of shooting in Chinatown, the Embarcadero, or Palace of Fine Arts, taking a ton of shots with me at your side. We'll capture street photography, dogs, architecture, and how to take a great photo of a person in less than a minute. It's guaranteed you'll get one on one guidance on light, angle, composition, and timing as we shoot together. You'll be inspired with advice on how to see differently and learn how to absolutely shoot your best angle and composition. Ask any question and I'll answer it to the best of my 35 years shooting professionally in Palo Alto, Asia, India, South America, Central America, Europe, Hawaii, and Indonesia. After we finish shooting, I’ll review your photos on my Mac Pro advising you on what makes your best photos great so you can be successful after our shoot. And how to improve the photos that don't grab you. The Ferry Building on the Embarcadero and the Palace of Fine Arts are architectural wonders. You'll learn how to use any camera or phone you have and leave with your own incredible photos to share with your family and friends.

Mary

I'm the founder of my award-winning photography business, in Palo Alto, the heart of Silicon Valley, for 35 years. I've photographed angel investors, 724 weddings, CEOs, families, wild rhinos, and the Dalai Lama. I love what I do. I've led programs at Apple, Stanford, Intel, and humanitarian foundations worldwide . I'm an author of 4 books and a world traveler. Sharing photography secrets that clients pay me $500 an hour to capture is my passion. My simplified method is fun! You can use any camera or phone, even if you've never picked up a camera before.
