It's time once again for a first-Sunday photo walk. This month we'll meet in the entrance of the Oakland Museum, a short walk from Lake Merritt BART - we will then walk along the West side of the lake, perhaps ending at Heart & Dagger.
Bring your camera(s) and wear some comfy shoes. Friends, kids, and dogs welcome!
This is the first of our informal EBPCO photo technique demos. Come see a simple and easy method for processing color slide film at home. (Or cross processing color neg film!). Bring a roll of film if you'd like to try it.
Join the longest-running monthly instant camera walk in the whole wide world. Polaroid, Impossible, Instax, whatever. Bring it and shoot it. Great fun, wonderful photos, and a level of photo nerd-ry not to be found anywhere else.
Join your fellow photo fanatics at EBPCO's first-ever holiday social. We'll sip, shoot, and socialize and, best of all, there'll be a Photo White Elephant Gift Swap. Bring your strangest item of photo gear and you may end up swapping it for something even stranger.
Bring a bottle of something to drink and a snack and, of course, your gift-wrapped Photo White Elephant.
This month we are teaming up with our friends at Glass Key Photo for our November Social. Glass Key is having a grand re-opening party and we'd be fools not to crash the party!
From Glass Key: We are having a grand opening for our new location and we are going to make it a Luau themed party! Come join us in celebrating our new space! There will be live music, food, drinks, raffle giveaways, etc.. We are also planning on having an auction of donated work to benefit the fire victims of the North Bay fires (if we can get this organized in time). Save the date and stay tuned for more info
What photo projects are you working on? Not a critique, just a chance to share your latest work with friends. We'll have video and movie projectors, as well as plenty of space to lay out prints. You avant-garde types out there, comment or email if you have special requirements.
Snacks provided. Please bring drinks, non-alcoholic and otherwise.
New EBPCO sponsor Studio Fab has an interesting workshop coming up.
We are once again hosting another Fashion Photography Workshop, hosted by Studio-FAB. We will have a BEAUTIFUL fashion model (TBD), an AMAZING location, and some wonderful designer clothes from a celebrity fashion designer: James Head.
WHEN: Sunday, October 8th, 2017 from 2-6pm
WHERE: We have access to an amazing home in the Piedmont hills that I like to call a "Mini-Mansion" (exact address will be given to paying attendees via email)
Bring your DSLR or Mirrorless camera, or hey maybe bust open a roll of film for this wonderful event. We'll have a beautiful fashion model and another great location to shoot her in. Get ready to have some fun! This will be a mentored educational photography event led by the internationally renowned fashion photographer: Leon Saperstein from Studio-FAB. We will spend the first hour of the class giving our attendee's a mini review of 3 of your best images, and then we will discuss some speed-light techniques for shooting amazing editorial style fashion photos using just a couple off camera speed-lights.
It's time once again for a first-Sunday photo walk. Let's meet in Jack London Square and wander up thru the produce disctrict and Chinatown. Bring your camera(s) and wear some comfy shoes. Friends and kids welcome!
We will start at Arthur Mac's, which is a) one of the area's newest beer gardens and b) is right near BART. We'll end at the Kingfish, which is a beautifully old-school bar.
Bring your camera(s) and your excitement for wandering and shooting! Kids welcome at Arthur Mac's and on the walk, but I'm not sure they'll be allowed into the Kingfish.

Hey fellow-photogs, let's meet up for beers, snacks, conversations, and general nerdery! It's our once-monthly get-together to catch up on where the Collective is at (resistance is futile, after all) and to chat about what we're up to, whether or not it's related to photography. Everyone is welcome! Bring your friends!
