Dirtbagger Trail Sessions

In all my years of running trails, I realized that the one thing all trailrunners and dirtbaggers have in common is that we love what we see out there.  The gorgeous coastal view, the high peaks of mountain ranges, and those amazing sunsets.  All too often we are unable to capture these moments in a photograph and they end up as a fleeting memory.  

I have chosen a number of locations here in the Bay Area where I will be your guide on a trail run and take photos of you in some very scenic locations.  Typically, the best time to shoot is during the "golden hour", when the sun's angle produces magical and golden light. Perfect timing can be a challenge but we will try to capture our best shots to coincide with this time of day.  While not intended to be high-resolution print photos, they will be your favorites to share on social media and in any of your online galleries.

What you get

A dedicated and able trailrunning guide.
A series of beautiful trailrunning photos with an optional slideshow.
I will provide post run beverages and snacks.

Since it is a photo-shoot, we are not required to run at a fast pace or in inclement weather. Should weather be a factor, we can reschedule a new date.  Let's go out, have fun and enjoy our surroundings!

Locations I find especially scenic

Purisima Creek Redwoods ● Russian Ridge and Skyline Open Space ● Point Reyes ● Marin Headlands ● Mount Tamalpais ● Calistoga - Oat Mine Trail and the Palisades ● San Francisco - Baker Beach overlook ● Huddart Park ● Montara Mountain ● *We can also shoot at your favorite location

I travel light for these runs and my gear consists of two Canon G7X MarkII cameras and various tripods. Visit my Trail Photos page to view some of my work.
