Washington Photo Safari™ is one of the largest photography training programs in the United States, offering 5-6 photo safaris every week, teaching over 280 participants per month how to take well-composed photos.
Safaris take place in the Washington DC area (twice a day during cherry blossom season!), and are also offered to multiple U.S. and international locations. Over 28,000 amateur photographers have improved their skills through Washington Photo Safari since we began the program in 1999.
Our basic "Monuments and Memorials" safari every Wednesday and Saturday in Washington DC includes such architecturally diverse sites as the White House, Lafayette Park, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam and Korean War Memorials, the Capitol Building, and Union Station, where we review interior photography w/o flash and teach you how to make all the moving people in the station disappear!
Every Saturday afternoon we also offer walking excursions to a different DC-area attraction, such as the Franciscan Monastery, the Adams-Morgan neighborhood, or the US Botanic Garden. These safaris also appeal to people who love to take pictures but prefer the safety of a small group under the guidance of a professional photographer.
We also offer photo safaris tied to unique themes or techniques, such as all-digital safaris, fine arts, nature photography, outdoor portraiture, f stops and shutter speeds workshops,model trains, wedding and pet photography. Another explores Washington's art galleries and museums, while others are timed to capture the rising of a full moon over the Capitol or the sun rising behind the Washington Monument!
If you love taking pictures and want to learn how to make them better, the Washington Photo Safari™ is for you!
