NOTE: There is a minimal charge for this event to cover the restaurant cost.

Join ASMP-SD on Tuesday August 19th as we take to the streets of Old Town for an old favorite - the Photo Safari Shootout! During this time-limited exercise, you get to challenge your creativity and test your photographic eye. The rules are rather simple:

• At the beginning of the Shootout you will be provided with a super-secret prop which must be included in your photo.

• You will have a mere one (1) hour to create an image incorporating that prop.

• No Photoshop - you will shoot JPGs and what you create in-camera is what you submit.

• The JPGs will be randomly renamed for anonymity and all contestants vote for favorites from a slideshow of entries.

• The winner receives a $ cash prize!

Are YOU up to the challenge?

This event will be based from La Piñata Mexican Restaurant ( in Old Town, 2836 Juan St, San Diego, CA 92110 ( We will meet at 6:30pm to review rules/etc., and will shoot for 1 hour (approximately 7pm-8pm, allowing a little daylight and twilight images). We are keeping the cost minimal to keep the emphasis on the fun, so ticket prices go to cover the use of a private room and some appetizers. You are free to order your own dinner or drinks. NOTE: Tickets are only $5 for ASMP members and $10 for guests ($20 if you wait to register at the door), and discounted pre-registration ends at 6pm the day before -- so PLEASE register early so that we can give the restaurant an approximate head count before the day of the event!
