Bruce's Story

Bruce Getty lives and breathes San Francisco. A New York native, Bruce Getty moved to the Bay Area in the late 1970s. In 2000, Bruce opened Getty's Vintage Lighting where he would restore, hang and repair antique light fixtures. Here is where he realized creativity can be sparked from anywhere and anything.  This passion Bruce had for lighting antiques fueled his creative energy. In 2013, Bruce found Instagram, a community of people that liked to take pictures. He knew then it was time to take things to the next level. Learn the compositions of the land, learn how to read the weather, learn how lines change as you angle your camera, tactics of chasing light. His first camera was a Nikon D7000. Bruce has travelled internationally to shoot photographs. Some countries including Canada, Argentina, Turkey, and Australia. He has worked with companies such as Nikon, Nisi Filters, and Eizo USA. Over the years he has worked with hundreds of clients for photo workshops, lessons and photo tours in the Bay Area and across the United States. Photography changed Bruce's life for the better. He continues to share his knowledge and love for photography every chance he gets! He loves helping others bring out the best in themselves and push the boundaries of photography.
