I am meeting the SF Bay area Large Format Photography group for a Meet-up at Sutro Baths on Sunday June 10, 2012.
Sutro Baths opened March 14, 1896 with a $1 million pricetag — an extravagant public bathhouse envisioned and developed by the eccentric one-time mayor of San Francisco, Adolph Sutro. After working its way through its many lives (Playland, 1960s ice rink, etc..)— burned down while being demolished on June 26, 1966. In 1980 the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) bought the land for $5,500,000.
Sutro Baths is on the ocean on the far west edge of San Francisco, just north of Ocean Beach and south of Land’s End. It’s immediately north of the legendary Cliff House.
I will have the Arca-Swiss 141 4X5 Field Camera, D4, C1 Cube, and Z1 tripod heads, plus other accessories. If anyone is interested, I will also have the new RL3d 4×5 technical camera for demonstration.
Please contact me if you need more details, otherwise, hope to see you there for a great day of photography!
