Instameet002: BOSK, Broadway, Eat Real and Town Eats.
We had a blast during the 2nd Oaklandish x Explore Oakland Instameet this past Saturday. We began the night with a meet-up at BOSK in Old Oakland. After everyone got to meet each another and check out some of the great brands we have at BOSK, we headed out on the Town and gradually made our way towards Jack London and the Eat Real and Town Eats festivals.
The turnout was great, with a lot of new faces finding their way to Old Oakland for the very first time. As we made our way down Broadway and chased the sunset, we found ourselves shooting everything from Amtrak trains to those famed cranes at the Port of Oakland and all the delicious eats from the two food fests happening on the waterfront. The walk was an ideal way to experience these once-a-year festivals in one of the best corners of the Town.
We are very happy to help convene the photography community in Oakland and the East Bay. A special thank you goes out to BeholdCreators for the recap video from the event! If you want to see more pictures from the event, search the hashtags #INSTAMEETOAK002 and #ExploreOAK on instagram!
We also wanted to thank a few partnering organizations for providing giveaways for the raffle that took place Saturday evening. Special thanks go to Chrome Industries for providing great camera baga, to Cooph Clothing for providing a sweatshirt, two tees, a hat and a beanie, and lastly to Purity Organics for providing plenty of healthy beverages!
