Get yourselves ready, Bay Area. We're going to swoop into the city like the classic San Francisco fog - in fact, cooler! Our team has been working to open our doors this Thursday, and with our superb architects in from Vienna, the shop is really starting to come to life. Check out the teaser video below to get a quick glimpse of Lomography San Francisco in the early stages...
The Store’s Opening Party begins at 7 PM at our 309 Sutter location (cross street is Grant) and it is sure to rival the city’s fervor during the original Gold Rush – especially with food provided by The Rib Whip and custom sweets from Mission Minis. To burn off those gluttonous indulgences, we’ve got a line-up that will make you want to dance all night with DJ Carnita spinning top-notch vinyl as one-half of the famous Hard French experience and a performance from the award-winning traditional bluegrass band Windy Hill. Obviously, it wouldn’t be San Francisco without a cocktail, which is why we’ll have the scientists over at Cocktail Lab rocking some moonshine punches just for us!
Want to come? Of course you do! You won’t get in without your name on the guest list. So be sure to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure that you can get in to our big event.

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
