Welcome to the San Diego Outdoor Photography Group.
The mission of this Meetup group is to give San Diego photographers a place to meet and collaborate with fellow shutterbugs in the San Diego area.
THIS IS AN EDUCATIONAL PLACE. It is for photography and connections with those of us who love capturing images of the world around them. We will be planning outings and gatherings for photographers to meet and socialize, and also provide classes offered at a discount to our members. Our aim is to support the photographic community in San Diego.
We encourage you to post your photography for constructive feedback. If you have general photography questions, post them here too. Many Meetup groups don't provide any instruction or guidance, but this one is different! Our goal is not only to create great images, but to help educate and you along the way.
Please remember that each person is sharing their art and just looking for a bit of friendly constructive criticism or feedback… so please keep your comments positive, without putting down anyone's work.
Rudeness, profanity, and negativity will not be tolerated. Political posts will not be allowed, due to the problems they can create. Too many differing opinions lead to arguments, fighting, name calling and rudeness, which are inappropriate for this site. Also, while pictures of religious symbols and celebrations are allowed, discussions of religion will not be. Finally, this page does not promote or condone any illegal activity to get shots.
All spam and or inappropriate materials will be deleted, and the person who posts it can be removed and blocked from the site.
Please remember to leave any place you shoot as nice, if not better than when you arrived. Please be safe out there while shooting. As with any endeavor, there are inherent risks with shooting and it is always recommended to shoot with a friend if all possible.

Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center
Come join us for this wonderful opportunity to photography tens of thousands of wild animals and birds. Bosque Del Apache is a wildlife refuge along the upper Rio Grande river. Approximately 50,000 snow geese and 10,000 sand hill cranes migrate here each winter. These wetlands provide critical habitat, protection, and food for thousands of migrating waterfowl and a bewildering variety of wildlife. Ducks, hawks, eagles, blackbirds, ravens, coots, and other birds along with occasional mammals, such as mule deer, coyotes, bob cats, javelina and jackrabbits are seen regularly and up-close. All this and landscape photography locations. BTW, the sunsets are amazing! We will end this trip with a visit to White Sands National Monument.
