April Weekday Photo Shoot: San Diego Zoo
Join us for a fun and exciting weekday Photo Shoot in the beautiful month of April at the San Diego Zoo! The temperatures should be comfortable and the crowds not too busy. Tourists are gone and the kids are back at school. We will meet to the right of the entrance in front of the membership booth at 8:30a.m. and do the group photo and get in line at 8:45a.m. We will enter the Zoo when it opens at 9:00a.m. sharp. Please be on time! If you are late or lost, do not worry, you can call me Walter on my cell phone at[masked], and I will tell you where we are, but try not be late. (As cell phone reception is not good in many areas of the Zoo, I may not answer) Maps are available at the entrance. If you're unfamiliar with the Zoo, take a map. Here is a link to the Zoo web site: San Diego Zoo ( Our Route. Our route will be determined a few days before the shoot and sent out to you. If anyone has any requests for animals they want to photograph, send me an email and I'll try to work it in. Some special notes (Please read this too): If you RSVP YES, please show up, otherwise change your RSVP to NO. Bring walking shoes, water, hats and sunscreen etc. or whatever you need. A long telephoto zoom is the best lens to bring. You can also pack your lunch if you like. Correct etiquette for Zoo Passes: If you are a member of the Zoo and have a guest pass that can be used by a non-member, please indicate so when you RSVP. If you need a guest pass, please contact the person offering the guest pas via personal message. If your offered pass has been taken, please indicate so. By following this simple procedure we will avoid generating hundreds of emails. Thank you! This generosity has helped quite a few people in our photo shoots in the past, as the current admission for non-members is now (gulp) $52.00. Thank you. Members needing assistance or who have questions can ask me or any other Organizers present. We will be glad to help. There will also be other experienced photographers present willing to help out. It should be another great day out. If you have any questions, suggestions or ideas you can email Walter by going to my member profile. If you get lost or separated from the group, call my cell phone,[masked]. See you there! Please Note: By submitting a YES RSVP you agree that PPS, Organizers and Event Hosts are not responsible for your safety, or for any injury or accident of your person or your property. You agree that you have read the instructions of the announcement and that you are able to participate in the event at your own risk.
