San Francisco’s Best Locations for Pet Photography


One of the things I love about living in the Bay Area is its endless beauty! From rolling hills with spectacular views, to beaches and glowing sunsets, and of course the famous Golden Gate Bridge. With so many options, how do you choose the best location for your dog’s photo shoots?

There may not be a right or wrong answer, but to help you out I put together my favorite places for Pet Photography in San Francisco.

Fort Funston – Stick me on a beach and you have made my day, but stick me on a beach with tons of dogs and I am in heaven. I may be biased, but from a photographer’s perspective this location is excellent because of its versatility. You have beach views, aloe covered hills and plenty of trails to get lost in.

Baker BeachBaker Beach has several winning factors including its fantastic view of the Golden Gate Bridge! So if you’re looking for an iconic San Francisco shoot, this is the place to go. Not only does this location offer great beach shots, but if you venture up the hillside the redwoods make for breathtaking scenery as well.

Crissy Field – What dog doesn’t love Crissy Field? This is another great option if you’re seeking those beautiful Golden Gate Bridge shots! With green grass all year round and sandy beaches with rolling waves, there are plenty of great options. As with much of San Francisco, this location is sometimes susceptible to Karl the Fog.

Albany Bulb – Looking for something a little different? Albany Bulb might be your spot. This peninsula just to the west of Berkeley, CA is known for its waterfront and a mixture of nature and a grungy (but not dirty) atmosphere filled with concrete slabs featuring beautiful street art.
