On March 17th 2018 our club met at the Motor Transport Museum in Campo – the weather was not very cooperative that day, but five of us braved the elements and had photographic fun with the old decaying vehicles in the yard, and in the shop were they are restored.
Every month we have a planned activity on the third Saturday (following our monthly meeting on the third Thursday – you can see all meeting and activity details on our calendar page). In March, we’re heading to the Motor Transport Museum (MTM) in Campo, guided by long-time club member Jim McGinn.
You are invited to the March 15 meeting of the San Diego Photo Club featuring portrait photographer Siobhan Gazur.
The March 2018 Photo Quest for our members is “Tide Pools” – a narrower theme than our two previous ones, but one that should be easy for everyone in San Diego: all you need to do is get out to the coast and explore the tide pools with your camera!

You are invited to the February 15 meeting of the San Diego Photo Club featuring landscape photographer Larry Vogel with his presentation: “Shooting and Processing Award Winning Landscape Photographs – What Would Ansel Do?”

Nevertheless, please be extremely respectful to both people and animals.
UPDATE: due to an illness Monica had to cancel and Steve Cirone filled in for her with a presentation on mastering bird and insect photography. We are working with Monica to reschedule her for a later date. Please check our 2018 Calendar to see who else will be presenting at the club’s next meetings.
You are invited to the January 18 Meeting of the San Diego Photo Club featuring Monica Royal. Monica Royal has held a long time fascination with the macro world. She sees things others don’t and she loves to share her vision!
