PhotoWalk Presents opportunities for creating stories with pictures.

A photowalk is an opportunity for photographers, tourists, and visitors alike to exercise their imagination and creativity. The activity involves a lot of moving around and plenty of opportunity to take pictures and have fun. In order to maximize the experience, we typically plan two rest stops along the route. At these stops, we will discuss ideas, tips, and tricks. Oftentimes, the route includes a portrait stop by Alex Vakulin, where basic photography tips for great portrait shots will be discussed, followed by a few practice shots. My photowalk is not only a social event to share your passion, but it is also an opportunity to learn new techniques and hone your skills. This is a fun and creative way to capture scenes in the beautiful city of San Francisco. What matters most in photography are the images that you capture and how you go about capturing them. Whether you're out exploring the world or tucked away in a cozy studio apartment, these ideas should inject some new inspiration into your photography or allow you to brush up on basic skills that you may have let slip away. Get your camera and let's get going - have fun with it! Of course, it's not just about snapping the perfect shot - it's also important to know the fundamentals of photography. This includes getting familiar with the basics of exposure and composition, such as the rule of thirds, leading lines, and the use of colors. It's also helpful to understand more advanced concepts like depth of field, shutter speed, different angles, lighting, and settings, and don't be afraid to take risks. The most important thing is that you enjoy the process and find satisfaction in the results.


Alex is a superhost. The golden gate bridge photo walk was amazing. i was the only person he toured so it was more like a quality time spent with a new found friend. His photography skills is impressive but he was able to give me practical tips in a way that I understood. i thought our tour ended after our walk around the bridge but little did i know that the best was yet to come. we went to a pub at Ghirardellis and next thing, he was already showing me to some of his favourite microbrewery bars around Alameda. None of these i would be able to enjoy without Alex's hospitality. its my best experience ever!

Good experience

It was great! Remember to wear comfortable shoes because it’s a really long walk

Oleksandr was a delight to talk to and he knows his craft well. We walked (a lot), talked (a lot), discovered new angles, new settings. I would recommend it to everyone who wants the explore the place and is really interested in taking good pictures (and not only selfies with the Golden gate:).

One of the best experience I've ever had. Alex is very passionate about photography and he's very happy to share his knowledge and experiences with me. He took me to the best spots at the Golden Gate for photos and took some of the most amazing photos for me as well. Can't wait to experience the next walk.

He was very patient and a good teacher when it came to learning. It was an enjoyable walk and time taking photos with him!

Really helped my skills in photography as I have only just started out! Recommend for beginners and anyone who wants to learn more about photography! Great walk too!!

Would recommend this photo walk to anyone visiting SF or with an interest in photography. A great guide and a great host, Oleksander helped us take some truly stunning photos. And taught us a lot about photography. What an awesome experience! Thanks!

This was an exceptional tour. It gave me the opportunity to explore the Golden Gate Bridge through the eyes of a photographer. The tour started with the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance and after a guide intro to camera use we slowly made our way to the bridge snapping pictures along the way. We ended on the bridge with the opportunity to take some details shots and some portraits with the bridge. At every chance I were given tips and tricks to enhance my skills that I know I’ll use again and again. I left with at least a dozen unique shots of the Golden Gate Bridge that I love!
