••• How to experience & photograph San Francisco •••

Create and collect your own postcard-perfect memories and photos of San Francisco!

San Francisco is one of the most enjoyable and photogenic cities in the world, but where exactly should you go and when to get the best experiences and photos? Even if you don’t photograph, use this app as a visual travel guide to enjoy the best experiences and collect them in your memory. This describes every attraction A-Z that would interest you, giving insider tips and essential details on what to see and do.

Award-winning travel photographer Lee Foster has selected photos for more than 100 top views and experiences of The City, from vistas to iconic details. He shows you how to duplicate them and capture a subject with nuanced approaches. Learn precisely where to aim your eye or your camera, what time of day and year offers the best light, and why the particular view or experience is significant.

Use the handy maps to find a cluster of photo/viewing opportunities in one area. See the map distance from your current position to the desired subject. If you’re just getting started, take a look at the “10 Top Photos.” Beyond that, you’ll find photo/viewing suggestions for time of day (Dawn-AM), type of subject (People), techniques (Low Light), and various lenses (Wide Angle). All the photos/views are assigned to a neighborhood (perhaps North Beach) in San Francisco or to the iconic-views-beyond-The-City category (Outside SF).

If you get intrigued with a subject, a further website reference with additional information is provided. If there is any access cost for the photo/view, that is noted, along with a phone number and hours open, when relevant. All the photos and write-ups in this app are by Lee Foster.
