Joe Ercoli Year in Review – My Top 7 Images From 2014

Joe Ercoli Year in Review - My Top 7 Images From 2014

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] This has been an incredible year for me, photographically speaking, and while I may not have gotten out to shoot as much as I would have liked to, I feel like I made the most of the sessions that I had and came away with […]



Night Image of the New San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge!

Night Image of the New San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge!

As soon as I heard that the bridge was open, I was out the door like a shot with my gear in hand so that I could capture this little piece of history.

See the original exposures and get a peek behind the scenes to see how a composite image can be made from an HDR and strobist images.



San Francisco Seven Sisters – Girls Night on the Town

San Francisco Seven Sisters - Girls Night on the Town

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I could almost hear the 7 Sisters laughing at us as we visited them for a shoot. I ran up to San Francisco one night with Tom and Paul to shoot this row of Victorian houses that has graced magazine covers, postcards and the opening […]



Escaping My Grasp – Golden Gate Shrouded in Fog

Escaping My Grasp - Golden Gate Shrouded in Fog

[fb_like] I’m still waiting for that elusive shot: the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge completely covered in a thick blanket of fog with only the tops of the two towers peeking out. As many times as I’ve shot this bridge (many, many times!), the conditions have never been just right. Last night I […]



Azeneth and Willie – Honeymoon in San Francisco

Azeneth and Willie - Honeymoon in San Francisco

[fb_like] I got the call from Azeneth letting me know that she and her husband, Willie, would be on their honeymoon in San Francisco and that she wanted to surprise her husband by hiring a photographer for portrait session as a wedding gift. Being from New York they didn’t know



Entering the Concrete Jungle

Entering the Concrete Jungle

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] Remember on a hot summer day you’d run through the sprinklers or maybe you had one of those toys that hooked up to the hose that was a fountain that had a bunch of hoses whipping about with water shooting out of the ends? The […]



Hand-held HDR and SF Financial District

Hand-held HDR and SF Financial District

Hang This on Your Wall – Buy a Print! [fb_like] I’ve been hearing it from the so-called self proclaimed experts on internet forums that hand-held HDR is impossible or “you won’t get good results!” Just the mere mention of hand-holding



Another Merit Photo @ the Print Competition

Another Merit Photo @ the Print Competition

It’s a win in my book! While it may technically be second place again, an 82 point merit print is another good effort for my second time in print competition. I went with the HDR above …



San Francisco City Hall in HDR strikes again!

San Francisco City Hall in HDR strikes again!

[fb_like] It’s time for celebration over here at the Anvilimage compound! My image of San Francisco’s City Hall (shown above) won second place in an HDR photo contest hosted by Rick Sammon! I want to



It’s Raining Stars!

It's Raining Stars!

Raining Stars, original photography by Joe Ercoli. No, it’s not a meteor shower or anything else falling from the sky. This is a long exposure that I shot on yet another one of my late nights out and trails of light in the sky are the stars as the Earth moves. In fact, it was […]



Takin’ It All the Way to City Hall

Takin' It All the Way to City Hall

[fb_like] Expecting to see pics from the drag races? Nope, sorry. As has been happening with increasing frequency, my Friday night last week was another late night shoot-o-rama and I just didn’t have it in me to head out to the track in Sonoma with only 3+ hours of sleep. It just wasn’t going to […]



Giants Baseball and Panoramas

Giants Baseball and Panoramas

So, when the rest of traffic won’t let some guy in from a parking spot that has his signal on, I jump on the oppurtunity to grab a space and walk a block and a half to the entrance to the park unencumbered by a throng of people. I couldn’t believe it when the parking meter only gave me something like 29 minutes for the 60 cents that I put in! How do people work and park in the City?



Welcome Home

Welcome Home

On the way home from a day at the supermoto races, I’m driving through Marin and the daylight is just starting to fade. Colors are popping and I start to think (like every other person with a camera that hasn’t done it yet), “This would be an awesome time for a shot of the Golden […]



Post St East

Post St East

Those of us that live in the SF Bay Area are pretty surprised when we get such perfect weather on a visit to San Francisco. Anyone remember the movie “So I Married an Axe Murderer” with Mike Myers? I swear they must have made a deal with the devil
