Washington Photo Safari is the DC area's leading provider of photographic instruction. Established in 1999, it was the first program of regularly scheduled local photo safaris in the nation. It teaches the techniques of photography by taking visitors and local residents on half-day and full-day photo shoots around key sites of the nation’s capital and other cities, while an accompanying professional photographer offers participants extensive tips in the use of several camera models, image composition and design, proper exposure and lighting, and posing “models” to the best effect. Washington Photo Safari is now one of the country’s largest providers of hands-on photography training field trips with a team of 12 professional photographers giving instruction to over 250 clients every month on local and domestic itineraries. Over 28,800 amateur photographers have been trained by Washington Photo Safari since 1999, 8,200 of them as repeat clients returning for 2 or more of the 150 safari itineraries that we offer.
