Photo Ops Guide with screenshots and maps GTA: San Andreas


GTA: San Andreas Photo Ops Guide

- by IKHAM

The photo ops are pretty simple to find, but first you must understand how to get a photo op, SO READ THIS NEXT BIT BECAUSE IT'S IMPORTANT.

The main idea behind a photo op is to take a picture, using your camera, of a target. These targets are dotted about the city of San Fierro at certain points of interest. The target is a small blue/purple sphere with a camera icon on it. It can only be seen through the camera, not by simply looking. Don't worry about what the target looks like yet, it's pictured in the screenshots of this guide.

If you need a little help finding a target then you will be plesed to know that between midnight and 5am, the photo ops glow without the camera when you get close to them.

When you successfully take a photo op, you will know because a message will popup telling you how many you have taken.

Click a number to be taken to descriptions and screenshots of the Photo Op location.

You can take one snapshot before opening San Fierro. It's #50. Just get to the yet closed bridge and get to the barricades as close as possible. Then take your camera and zoom it on the Easter Bay Chemical compound pipes and you should see the icon.

Hey, i have all of the photo op's except for #36, i've checked to make sure on my radar that it was the right location but for some reason the circle doesn't appear, i figured since it was a courier mission building maybe i had to do the deliveries first but still no go.

I was stuck at 49 for a while too, but SAMA told me I was missing #2.

For completing all 50 Photo Ops, 4 weapons spawn outside your garage in San Fierro (the one with the save, near Wang's Auto), grenades, a Tec-9, Sniper Rifle, and Shotgun. I think you get 100,000 in cash as well (someone else mentioned that), but I didn't pay attention honestly.

One that i found fairly hard was the Big Donut inkings i think it is i mean it was very easy after i seen it the easiest way i found to get the snapshops is set the time to midnight where it is dark the places you need to take pictures of have like a bright ball of light around them.
