About shooting in San Diego

People always ask about shooting at the beach in San Diego. Did you know it's illegal without a permit? The one place they seem to turn a blind eye is La Jolla Cove for families and weddings.

The second most common place people inquire about is Balboa Park. Sadly, like all parks managed by our fair city, it also needs a permit and they won;t issue them unless it's part of a wedding permit.

So what do you do? You shoot at parks managed by the County of San Diego! They are easy to work with and have incredible park like the Los Pennasquitos Canyon Preserve with the famous Ranch House right on it. A permit is required but easy to get and the fees are resonable.

Lastly, you can also shoot at photography friendly Old Poway Park without permits!
