What we're about

Welcome to the Pacific Photographic Society of San Diego. We are an active hands-on photography group for all levels of photographers and for photographic expertise from novice to expert.

Our emphasis is on photography in the field and in the studio, as well as photo finishing, education and networking.

We offer our members a wide range of photography related events including several monthly photo shoots at various locations, seminars, classes, educational shoots and networking opportunities with other photographers.

We welcome all photographers from beginner to professional and seek to provide an environment that is friendly, professional and enriching for all.

Raptors at Ramona Grasslands

Ramona Grasslands Preserve

Please note, I have changed the date and time on this event. Stay tuned, the Governor's stay at home order may cause future changes, but your rsvp will be honored, or your wait list reply kept in sequence. I changed the name of this PPS event to avoid confusion with the Hawk Watch sponsored by the Wildlife Research Institute. This event features wild raptors not captives. Photographing them will be challenging. There will be two hiking opportunities. A shorter loop is located near the parking area and there is a longer hike for those who would like that. After the hike, I will be heading down Rangeland Road for the burrowing owls, bald eagle nest and other raptor pics. Bring your telephoto lenses, tripod, binoculars and spotting scopes. H2O and a snack or lunch if you're doing the longer hike. Rain or stay at home order may cause cancellation/rescheduling. Also be considerate and not be a "no show", especially if there are members on the wait list. Please Note: By submitting a YES RSVP and participating in any PPS event, you agree that PPS, Organizers, and Event Hosts are NOT responsible for your safety or for any injury or damage to your person or your property, or that of your guest(s).You agree that you have read the instructions of the announcement and that you and your guest(s) are assuming all risks of participating in the event.
