  • Location: Washington D.C., District of Columbia
  • Duration: Varies (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3652FULL

Confused by all the dials and menus of your camera? Would you like to get away from "auto" and learn to use all the features of your camera when you travel? This Washington DC photography workshop provides tips on architectural and travel photography, outdoor portraiture, and interior photography without flash by professional photographer E. David Luria., while taking you to the most popular monuments and historic buildings in Washington DC.


  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • Led by a professional photographer
Morning Photographic Sights
  • The White House
  • Lafayette Park
  • The Albert Einstein Memorial
  • Lincoln Memorial
  • Vietnam Memorial
  • Union Station
Afternoon Photographic Sights
In the afternoon, you will drive to colorful and architecturally diverse Adams-Morgan neighborhood, then to the magnificent Washington National Cathedral (one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture anywhere in the USA). Here, you will learn how to photograph stained glass windows and church interiors and exteriors. Finally, you will end up at the Iwo Jima Marine Corps Memorial across the Potomac in Arlington VA, with its extraordinary postcard view of the monuments in Washington DC. Your tour ends with a real "piece de resistance", photographing the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and the Capitol all aligned neatly in your viewfinder and shining in the afternoon sun.

This tour has a special appeal to people who love to take pictures but are hesitant to go out on their own and prefer the safety of a small (7-8 persons) group under the guidance of a professional photographer.
