We recently photographed an amazing events industry networker at Hack Temple in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco. Hack Temple is a new event venue in 100-year-old church. It is a must-see venue! The event was sponsored by a large number of local bay area event vendors.

Hornblower Cruises has been one of our favorite partners for several years. Their yachts are amazing and the bay they ride upon is always breathtaking. Recently, they held an event for all of their industry partners which took us on a dinner cruise to Alcatraz Island. The weather was perfect and Hornblower did an amazing job with the food and the hospitality.

Hornblower recently acquired the motorized streetcars adapted from the original San Francisco cable cars. Here is one of them below.

The event was held upon the Hornblower San Francisco Spirit Yacht. It was beautifully decorated and furnished as you see here.

Thank you, Hornblower for a fantastic event!

We have been a member of the International Live Events Association (ILEA) for several years. They are an events industry association that brings together event professionals from all over the world to facilitate collaboration and communication. It is a fantastic group to be part of and its filled with wonderful people.

Each year, ILEA throws a huge party in San Francisco for its members and other industry professionals. This is an amazing event – not only because it is spectacular to experience – but also because it is completely sponsored by in-kind donations from all of the event vendors.

I was the photography chair on the gala planning committee this year and also photographed the event with several other photographers and videographers. Once again, this was an incredible event and I’m so grateful to all those who made it possible.

To give you a taste of what it was like, here are a few of my images from the event.
