|The purpose of the ABDNHA Anza-Borrego Photographers group is to build a library of quality
photos to be used over time to promote education and enjoyment of the
Anza-Borrego area. It does not matter if you already have a collection
of images from Anza-Borrego or if you just enjoying shooting and want to
share your future work. It does not matter if you consider yourself
amateur, advanced, or professional; everyone is welcome to submit images.
This is entirely a volunteer program. You will receive credit for any
photos that are used and the satisfaction of knowing that your images are
being used to educate people and spread the word about the Anza-Borrego
region, but there is no payment available for the use of photos.
- From time to time we will send emails to the group describing specific
photos, or photos from specific areas, or certain events that we are
looking for for our website, Facebook, or The Sand Paper, ABDNHA's
- We are always interested in photos from ABDNHA-sponsored activities.
- We are interested in photos of people enjoying the desert, engaged in
activities, enjoying events, camping, hiking, driving, biking.
- We are interested in dark sky photos.
- As our group develops we will create an online gallery of selected
images that are submitted to us.
Please understand that we cannot use all of the images submitted to us.
Photos will be selected for future web pages, trip descriptions, articles,
and publications as those pages and articles are developed.
Images for the website or publication will be selected which are well-focused, properly exposed,
and well-composed; photos that are suitable for display on a professional
website. Images submitted for our Facebook page do not
need to meet these same standards.
As our group grows we may feature a web gallery of submitted photos.

Submission instructions: Some
information about your photos will be collected in the form above.
- If you have pre-existing galleries on Flickr, Smugmug,
Shutterfly, snapfish, picasa, any other photo sharing site, or personal
blogs or websites, that will be an easy way for us to view your images and
select them over time. You can email us when new work is added.
- If do not have pre-existing galleries, or if you wish to send a
small number of photos to us directly, you can email photos directly
firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need
instructions on emailing photos, just email us.
- Photos for Facebook. We are always looking for
interesting photos for our Facebook page. Facebook photos often
depict things that are happening at the moment or just happened.
Examples of good Facebook photos would be images from an ABDNHA activity that just
flowers currently in bloom, wildlife recently seen, some natural event, and things of that
nature. Images for Facebook do not need to be high resolution.
Shots you take with your phone are generally just fine. You can
email these photos to us -
email@example.com or you can send them directly from your phone
- Please send no more than two
photos in an email or text message, and please send only your best shots.
