Washington Photo Safari teaches the techniques of travel photography by taking visitors and local residents on half-day and day-long photo shoots around the attractions of the nation’s capital and other cities. An accompanying professional photographer gives participants tips on composition, camera use, interior photography without flash, and outdoor portraiture.
DC architectural landmark photographer E. David Luria, a member of the American Society of Media Photographers, founded the Washington Photo Safari in 1999 as a sideline to his own commercial photography business. It is now one of the country’s largest providers of hands-on photography training field trips, with nine professional photographers providing over 100 domestic and international itineraries.
Washington Photo Safari offers four to five photo excursions every week, rain or shine, all year long, and special nighttime photography workshops, such as Monuments at Night and Moonrise Over the Nation’s Capital. It also provides special workshops for nature, flash, portrait, product, architectural, food, pet, macro, museum, wedding, and event photographers.
Photo safaris are also provided twice a day around the Tidal Basin during DC’s cherry blossom season.
