SAN FRANCISCO THROUGH THE LENS
- Learn how to “make” photos rather than just “take” them. Featuring one of the best vantage points to view the San Francisco Bay and skyline, Four Seasons Embarcadero becomes a launching point from which to discover the city during a private photo class with award-winning photographer Adam Jacobs. These sessions will teach you how to capture images of the iconic landmarks near the Hotel. Whether you want to learn about landscape imagery, focus on food photography or capture frame-worthy family shots, Adam will lead you on an exciting, personalized lesson. No matter your level of expertise (beginners are encouraged!) and equipment (from iPhones to the latest DSLR), Adam will equip you with tips and tricks for when you explore the Embarcadero or Golden Gate Bridge, so you can take home lasting memories of your San Francisco experience. Sessions can also be customized for families. Choose from two options:
Embarcadero Photo Adventure
Learn photographic techniques as well as pro tips and tricks from Adam, before venturing out and capturing specific landmarks (and some hidden gems) on a one-hour, walking tour around the city. Back at the hotel, review your photos with Adam, learn best practices and fine-tune your own set of images.
SELF-GUIDED EMBARCADERO PHOTO ADVENTURE
Learn photographic techniques as well as pro tips and tricks from Adam online before venturing out and capturing specific landmarks (and some hidden gems) on a one-hour, self-guided walking tour around the city. Then, reconnect with Adam online to fine-tune your own set of images.
