One of the lesser-known tours around Washington D.C that we think is actually one of the most fun, and most unique, options for groups is the Washington Photo Safari. This fun tour is a travel photographer’s dream, known today as ‘one of the nation’s leading providers of photography training field trips’. During one of these special journeys around the city a professional photographer will take you around to all the various monuments of D.C while giving you helpful tips on lighting, composition, and exposure, not to mention all the great historical facts and hidden spot tidbits you will get along the way. This photo tour has become so popular in the photography community that it has seen over 32,000 participants and over 4,500 different safaris since it began in 1999.
One of the greatest things about this tour option?
Any skill level photographer with any type of camera can take part, with different difficulty options, interest options, and camera specific options to choose from. As a matter of fact, there are over 150 different unique itineraries to choose from here. Right now some of the most popular current safaris include; Afternoon Light in Annapolis, Monuments and Memorials Basic Travel Photography, National Mall Experience, and Real Estate and Architecture Photography in D.C. You can take a 2 hour, half-day, or full day tour as you ‘see, click, and learn’ about new places, camera features, and D.C history! You will also get hands-on instructor training during the route, the entire process a learn by doing sort of adventure. If your group has particular needs you may be more interested in the private tutoring, group safari, or workshop options, as well.
