Destination Tide Pools: A Day Trip with Looking Glass

Out of stock

With this 3-part experience, you'll explore and photograph Tide Pools with us on a Day Trip led by Looking Glass Photo’s Jen Waicukauski. Get all the details below...


Photography Day Trip & Adventure

Day Trips with Looking Glass have one core premise: Fun! They are designed to provide you with an interesting & accessible way to enjoy the social & educational joy of photography. They will bring us together while exploring unique places, sharing in our passion for photography and supporting one another as we go. Make new friends and create wonderful images as you get outside in the fresh air and explore.

Looking Glass Photo’s Jen Waicukauski is excited to lead and share this experience with you. The area along the San Mateo County coastline that she has selected offers something for just about everyone. You’ll find an abundance of sea life in the sprawling tide pools, bird life that is actively hunting fish at times, and of course beautiful and unique landscapes/seascapes. The images included here are just a few examples of what Jen has seen in the area. (PLEASE NOTE: Tide pools feature uneven, slick surfaces that require good balance and care when walking on them.)

Pre-Trip “Gearing Up” Session (online via Zoom) - Sunday, February 12th

Let’s prepare for a great day! The Zoom session will take place at 10:00am on February 12th. We will send the Zoom Invite link a few days in advance.

Jen will discuss the location (i.e., getting there, where we'll meet, various photographic opportunities that exist there, the gear you may consider bringing based on your personal interests, the location, etc.). She'll also provide recommendations regarding how to dress for the day. In other words, Jen will be discussing how to get the best experience from your time at the tide pools. Plus, there will be time for Q&A. This session will run for approximately 60 minutes.

The Day Trip - Friday, February 17th

Let’s explore and take pictures together! The Day Trip is limited to 12 people and will take place on Friday afternoon, February 17th. We’ll embark on on our tide pool adventure at approximately 1:30pm from the parking area. Plan to arrive a bit before 1:30pm so we can gather and begin promptly. We’ll get lots of time to explore as the tide finishes going out, reaching a peak negative tide at approximately 3:00pm. For reference, if you were to leave from Looking Glass on your way to the tide pools, Google Maps states the drive is roughly an hour drive to the planned destination. (please note: Looking Glass will not be providing transportation). Once you register for the Day Trip, we’ll let you know the specific location for the tide pools as well as any other useful details in our Pre-Trip session mentioned above. 

And what really makes this extra awesome - there will be no expectations placed on you. This is truly getting a group of us out in nature to enjoy one another’s company and enjoy a safe, beautiful walk/exploration. We want you to have the freedom to discover the tide pools at your own pace and focus on what interests you. It’s one path in and out, and you get to decide what you do on it! Jen from Looking Glass will be along to assist with any photography questions as they come up!

Image Review Show & Tell (online via Zoom) - Thursday, February 23rd

Share your favorite images from the day! This session will run at 5:30pm on the Thursday that follows our Day Trip. Jen will gather images that you submit to share in a slideshow and lead a group discussion about the day and the images.
