EBPCO Executive Team
Meet the folks who are making it happen
Vince Donovan - Co-Executive Director
Vince is a photo mad-scientist, exploring, experimenting, and teaching traditional photographic media, techniques and processes. In 2011 he co-founded, with Michael Shindler, Photobooth SF, the first West Coast tintype studio in over 100 years. Vince also worked in the Gallery at Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco, and was in-house event photographer. His long-term portrait series, Cities of Faith, now extends to four different houses of worship in San Francisco and incorporates nearly a thousand individual portraits.
Anita Gay - Co-Executive Director
Anita has had a passion for cinema and photography her entire life, and has been involved with the Bay Area photo community for nearly two decades. She worked at Berkeley's Looking Glass Photo for much of that time, alongside a wide variety of artists and interesting characters. Anita loves to walk around Oakland with her Holga (either solo or as part of EBPCO's monthly photo walk) and is always excited to build upon her ever-growing collection of photography books.
Kendra Luck - Membership Coordinator
I’ve always been a photographer and a keeper of moments. As a child with a 110 camera photographing family vacations, with my first Nikon SLR in high school, learning B&W film processing and printing; then pursuing degrees in journalism and art from SJSU. I spent 13 years as a photojournalist all around the San Francisco Bay Area; including as staff photographer at Antioch Ledger, Valley Times and San Francisco Chronicle.
In 2002 I shifted my focus to dogs as the Dogumentarian, creating black and white documentary style dog portraits, mostly analog. Since then I have photographed hundreds of dogs, both for private commissions and book and magazine clients. I’ve had solo shows of my fine art dog photography in SF, Oakland, Palo Alto, Jackson WY and Scottsdale AZ.
Emil Petrinic - Equipment Coordinator
Emil is a designer, illustrator and photographer. He’s worked professionally as a music, theater, event and unit still photographer. For his personal photography, he often draws inspiration from great photography from the 1930s, often looking for strong contrast and graphic elements. He enjoys a variety of photographic pursuits, from urban exploration to nature macro photography. Having started with a technical background, he’s also fascinated with historic cameras and their design and workings.
Matthew Brown - Education Coordinator
Matthew Brown is an artist and teacher who lives in Berkeley, CA. He received a BFA in Film from the University of Colorado. In addition to photography, Matthew works as a freelance video editor and filmmaker. Selected Exhibitions include the Minnesota Street Project, Denver International Film Festival, Frameline International Film Festival, Outcast International Film Festival, Flatland Gallery, Another Cafe, and Looking Glass Photo.
Mario Henriquez - Membership Committee and Family Scan Coordinator
I have always been interested in photography. Whether it was a simple point-and-shoot or my father's Olympus OM-1 (which I still own), I always liked taking pictures. What took me so long to learn photography more in depth I'll never know, but now I'm trying to make up for lost time learning as much as I can and taking as many pictures as possible. Whether they are portraits or street scenes, I enjoy photographing people or places where people have somehow left their mark. I use a large format (4x5) camera with film and almost nothing else. You will recognize me when you see me with my Crown Graphic aimed at someone.
