Why Choose A Private Photography Workshop in San Francisco?

I’ve combined two of the best things in life: photography and coffee.

The Cafe & Camera workshop is a judgmental-free, enjoyable experience where you can learn at your own pace, develop the skills you want, and discover your love for photography.

Here’s How It Works:

The entire workshop is all about you.


We Meet

We will meet at one of my favorite cafes or parks in the city.



I will give a presentation on basic skills that cover the most common types of photography. This is NOT a boring lecture format workshop, it’s a hands on experience where I teach you on YOUR camera: discussing the basics of photography without the camera jargon, using the settings you need to get the most out of your camera, and answering all camera and photography related questions you have.


Practical Experience

After we’ve covered the basics, you’ll have time to practice what you’ve just learned.

What Are People Saying About The Private Photography Classes?

Anthony is an outstanding teacher and it was not only educational but also a really really fun evening! He took time to explain everything over and over and helped out with my equipment, which is quite new and I wasn't all acquainted with. He was very patient and extremely knowledgeable. After our meeting at the first stop, he took us around in his car so that we were able to take pictures of several different iconic SF places. The following day, Anthony sent an email with all the tips and tricks from the night before and with some advice on which tripod to purchase (which I am planning to do). The pictures I went home with are stunning and the money for this experience could not have been spent any better! Thank you again, Anthony!
I've traveled to many different places but I've never been able to shift my perspective from a tourist to a creative the way that Tony showed me. His instruction and knowledge of the city are world-class. I learned more as a photographer and as a creative in one night with Tony than I did in some graduate-level classes. Tony is not only a professional but extremely down-to-earth and fun to spend time with. I could not recommend this experience more to anyone interested in photography or San Fransisco, regardless of skill level. Perhaps the best part of this experience for me was that Tony was able to help me capture the best picture I've taken in my life. That to me is priceless.
I would have rated Anthony more than 5 stars if I could. Anthony spoke with me in a professional and personable way, shared his expertise with me at my level, and showed me some techniques I had not seen before. He encouraged me to take some pictures my way and then gave some suggestions that resulted in better pictures right away. Anthony not only knows where to go for interesting pictures but also conveys why they are good spots and how to change your perspective for different compositions. On top of that, Anthony provides a good historical perspective of the places we visited in San Fransico. I had a wonderful and educational time and highly recommend Anthony to anyone wanting to take more interesting pictures.
