If you are wondering about whether or not to choose this experience, I say "GO FOR IT!". Sean and his expertise helped to make my time here in SF unique. He took the time to teach me about not only instant film but the history of the city and he also shared many of his own personal experiences. I enjoyed it very much and even shared about my experience with my community and they all loved my photos! THANKS AGAIN SEAN!

This was such fun and special experience! Sean and I were walking around, talking about lives and taking photos like childhood friends. The best part was that Sean was not trying to take perfect photos but was capturing the moments instead. I’m one of the people who take hundreds photos so it so felt liberating! Thanks Sean for showing how to live in the present :)
