Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary with Pyro Spectaculars
May 27th was the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. The city of San Francisco put on a pretty elaborate festival in honor of the event that culminated with an epic fireworks display. The fireworks show was put on by Pyro Spectaculars, which is owned by the Souza family who have been in the business for five generations. The show was the result of a year of planning and engineering, and it took a seventy person crew four days of set up to have everything ready for Sunday night’s show. One of the highlight of the weekend for me was a trip to the top of the North tower of the Golden Gate Bridge to shoot the Pyro Speculators crew installing the pyrotechnics for the show. Here are a few images.
