The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is an oceanfront amusement park in Santa Cruz, California. Founded in 1907, it is California's oldest surviving amusement park and one of the few seaside parks on the West Coast of the United States.OverviewThe Boardwalk extends along the coast of the Monterey Bay, from just east of the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf to the mouth of the San Lorenzo River. At the western edge of the park lies a large building originally known as The Plunge, Now Neptune's Kingdom, which contains a video arcade, and indoor miniature golf course. Next to this is The Casino Fun Center which includes a laser tag arena and next to that (To the Right) is The Cocoanut Grove banquet room and conference center. A Laffing Sal automated character, from San Francisco's Playland, is viewable near the miniature golf course.East of the Casino, the boardwalk portion of the park stretches along a wide, sandy beach visitors can access easily from the park. The eastern end of the boardwalk is dominated by the Giant Dipper roller coaster, one of the best-known wooden coasters in the world and one of the most visible landmarks in Santa Cruz. The Dipper and the Looff Carousel, which still contains its original 342-pipe organ built in 1894, are both on the US National Register of Historic Places. They were, together, declared to be a National Historic Landmark in 1987 and the park is California Historical Landmark number 983.
The Santa Cruz Wharf is a wharf in Santa Cruz, California, United States, known for fishing, boat tours, viewing sea lions, dining, nightlife and gift shops. The current wharf was built in 1914, the last of six built on the site, and is operated by the City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation Office. The wharf is situated between Main Beach (which is adjacent to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk) and Cowell's Beach, on the westside of Santa Cruz City. With a length of 2745ft, it is the longest pier on the West Coast of the United States.A fish market on the wharf is featured in scenes from the film Sudden Impact.HistoryThe Santa Cruz Wharf opened on December 5, 1914. The original purpose of building the wharf was for shipping potatoes to San Francisco for mining camps in the Sierra Nevada during the Gold Rush. After the innovation of motor vehicles and improved land routes, the Wharf’s primary focus changed to be the base of the north Monterey Bay fishing industry. By the 1950s as Monterey Bay’s sardine and other fish populations dwindled, nearly every family owned a vehicle and had money to spend on recreation. As a result, the Santa Cruz Wharf became predominately a recreational destination. Today, the wharf is still a popular tourist attraction, nestled adjacent to the city's leading attraction, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Visitors flock to the wharf for a variety of restaurants, gift shops, wine tasting, candy stores, and just to stroll and peer down at the sea lions below. Annually, an estimated 1.5 million visitors come to the Santa Cruz Wharf to fish, shop, dine and sightsee.

I photograph at my studio located in Milpitas, your home or any other Bay area location that we agree on beforehand. If you need location suggestions, please let me know.
Sessions usually last from 1-2 hours, sometimes more if there's a location change.
I will go out of my way to get the "perfect shot". For a reasonable gas fee, I can be talked into going on a little roadtrip...
I don’t charge by the photo. You get every image in the highest resolution possible with full print rights. About one week after our session, you'll receive a CD with your best, fully edited and retouched pictures in the mail. I also include one 8*10 and your ten best shots as 4*6 prints.
I occasionally do TF* shoots of female models. If we do a TF* shoot, unless we agree otherwise beforehand, you will get 3 edited images for every 2 hours that we shoot together (good editing isn't quick).
My TF shoots are meant to be a artistic collaborations with the model. Don't expect me to take care of everything. Come with an idea and help out in any way you can!
