Film Photos | Pacifica, California

Using film to create film photos was a favorite pastime of mine. These photos are taken in Pacifica, California shortly after I moved to San Mateo. I used black and white film loaded in my Canon A2 camera. This might have been my second ever visit to Pacifica. Anyway, it was my favorite spot.

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve | Moss Beach, California

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve was one of my favorite oceanside places to go while I was living in San Mateo. During low tides Fitzgerald Marine Reserve offered tidal pools that would produce the occasional starfish. There were also hiking trails and overlooks. I had traveled there several times and each time tried to capture something unique. Here are two photos I took on one such visit. My wife posed beautifully for one of them. Here is more info on Fitzgerald Marine Reserve.

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve & Half Moon Bay | California

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve is located near Half Moon Bay, California. It is a great place for exploring tidal pools during low tide. I visited this area several times while I lived in San Mateo. It has a few hiking trails and is a great place to take photos. This would also be a good place for portrait photographers. These photos are highlights from one such visit.
