It’s Friday! It’s San Francisco Beer Week! In honor of that earlier this week we hosted some of our Associate Photographers at the studio for a photo booth and happy hour gathering. As we’re evolving our program, we brought together some folks to chat about the changes that are happening with the program and some [...]
Last night we had a blast at The Bold Italic‘s 2nd microhood event here in the Dogpatch, 3rd Base. If you stopped by the Dodocase space, then you probably hopped into our photobooth and tried some samples of delicious Almanac Beers, or maybe some Spicy Vines Spiced Wine? Of course there was the addictive Bacon [...]
We had the honor of shooting the Sno-ball party, one of the many joint birthday parties we’ve shot over the years (remember April Mistakes?!) and it was quite a blast. People dressed up in many ways, and we’re honored that Betabrand has decided to use a few shots on their website (above). They’ve got some [...]
We love Bay to Breakers and since our studio moved off the race path we hadn’t done a photo booth or photostation like we had in the past so this year we had access to a perfect street spot on Hayes Hill where we set up an impromptu photo booth and enjoyed our Sunday morning. [...]
We’ve already done a bit for the America’s Cup and are pretty excited for more events to photograph. We also have some special offerings including marine photo booth options and other cool ideas that can make America’s Cup events unique. Our Polaroid coverage is also pretty popular and we’ve been shooting Impossible Project film quite [...]

An epic event! We were honored to be a sponsor at this year’s gorgeous bash at Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion. Over three days, Hartmann Studios completely transformed the raw space into a sort of multi-room fantasy world. Each room had stunning room settings, floral design, lighting, music, and food & drink. The above time lapse [...]
Selecting images for this post brought to light the variety of photography we provide for our business and corporate clients. From photo stations and big bashes, to photographing notables and multi-day conferences. Here’s a smattering of favorites from recent months!
So one of the things we’ve had a great time doing are High Concept Photography photo booths (we now call this our Studio Booth). Although they aren’t always actual photo booths, but more photo ‘experiences’ most people just know the term photobooth so we use that. Anyhow, we’ve produced some of these on our own [...]
Recently, Zenfolio posted a blog entry where they interviewed me about event photography. It was fun talking to the Zenfolio team, whom we’ve developed a close relationship with since we use them for online hosting and sell prints and other photo-products through their service. They are a really solid platform and they have a great [...]
We had a blast at the “Summer Picnic” industry event for our friends at Fort Mason Center in the old Firehouse. Kara’s Cupcakes, Best Beverage Catering, Classic Party Rentals, Winery Collective, Global Gourmet Catering, McCalls Catering & Events, Beautifull, and Fingersnaps were all there to partake in the picnic splendor -lavender lemonade, hot dogs, sunshine and more. Everyone [...]
More Photobooth fun at SOM bar in SF! We debuted our new props. They make the faces for you! That’s right, all you lazy facemakers, it’s instant license to get silly.
We got the chance to use our spankin new photobooth last night at MPINCC’s holiday bash at Teatro ZinZanni. It was a big hit. Who doesn’t love instant gratification? Its reputation is preceding it as we are already pimping it out for upcoming event shoots. Some cool features: it prints either b/w or color, photo [...]
Last Friday, KCBS celebrated their 100th year right here in San Francisco at the beautiful Palace Hotel. We were there to photograph the attendees as they stepped into our green screen photo station. The room was filled radio celebrities, old and new. It was a lot of fun indeed. Below are some of the pictures [...]
With Holiday Parties around the corner, photo booths are always a lot of fun. We have our regular photo booths that people like where prints come out in strips as well as our super stylized ‘live’ photo booths which are really more photo stations. Either way, we set one up for our friend Eris’ super [...]
Thanks to all who came out and made it special. It’s good to know the studio doesn’t smell like a dive bar this week for nothing! As usual, we came away with a mere couple thousand photobooth images. Here’s a fun handful. Bert & my arm! Stacey & Kevin! Vicki. Cue the hair wind! Gene [...]
Yep, it’s that time of year again and we’ll be back out on the street to help you celebrate Bay to Breakers! With orange the official color of the race, we expect to see you all out to enjoy the day. We’ll be in front of our studio in our usual spot across the street [...]
A few selections from the party we hosted on Friday night – good times again – thanks to all who made it out!
