California Academy of Sciences

Field Trip on Sunday, 13 January, 2013
With Caroline Lambert
- persons have RSVP - RSVP now!


The California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco provides opportunities for a variety of photographic genres. Whether you like architecture, people, nature, or interesting lighting, you'll be sure to find something here to become immersed in. The building was recently remodeled; remnants of the old building and exhibits still remain, but the new sections are quite remarkable, from the depths of the Steinhart Aquarium to the green Living Roof.

Depending on the weather, parking can be an issue in Golden Gate Park, so carpooling is strongly encouraged.

If there is interest and the weather cooperates, there will be an option for going to the coast for the sunset.

Special Instructions

Tripods are *not* recommended for this location, because of the large number of people who visit the museum on weekends. If you need stabilization, a monopod should work, or a higher ISO if your camera can handle it. Most of the exhibits are well lit. Flash photography is allowed in most areas; areas where photography is not allowed are marked.

  • comfortable walking shoes
  • entrance fee ($30 adult, $25 senior)
  • lunch or money for buying lunch
