Photography in Sacramento

Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Standing on J Street during the latter part of the 19th century, it seemed you could throw a rock in any direction and hit a photography studio. On this interactive tour we will be delving into the lives of local photographers and their subjects. We’re asking for shutterbugs of all levels to participate. Working together, we will have an album on Facebook dedicated to this tour and everyone’s perspective of some of the most beautiful works of art that the cemetery has to offer. Bring your Point-and-Shoot, DSLR, or cell phone and get ready to have some fun! 

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Meet at the Tenth Street gate. There is free street parking on surrounding streets. Tours are free; however, donations are appreciated and benefit cemetery preservation. For more information, call 916-448-0811.
