I’m a SF Local. Been here since ’97. Moved up for art school and stayed. I should know the good shops. They all have their quirks, but each shop on this list has something valuable to offer a photographer in its own way. I’m not going into detail but I’ve provided websites and Yelp reviews to help you figure it out. Now aren’t you happy? I just weeded out the crap and gave you a solid list to work with. Good luck in your photo adventures.
