I have been involved with the northern California International Live Events Association (ILEA) for several years and its been a great professional network for my business. I recently sponsored one of their events by photographing it.
This event was at Tank 18 in San Francisco. This is a cool venue with wine barrel racks, a stainless steel bar, walls of wine bottles. Kind of a raw space but that makes it a great canvas to create your event.
As an SF Bay Area Wedding and event photographer, I love discovering cool new venues and this is one of them!
