Harvey Milk Photo Center offers a wide variety of film and digital photography classes and workshops for all skill levels, as well as photography exhibitions, photo lectures, and a large membership-based darkroom and digital editing and printing lab.
Celebrating 75 years in 2015, the Photo Center is the oldest and largest public darkroom west of the Mississippi and is a jewel of the San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department. Harvey Milk Photo Center, which is run by Dave Christensen, Director, is located at Duboce Park in the basement of the Harvey Milk Center for the Arts building and is a non-profit agency.
All Photo Center programs are offered to the public, and classes and workshops are taught by working professionals within the industry in both fine arts and commercial photography. A scholarship program is in place for anyone interested in taking classes.
