See. Click. Learn.
That’s what we do for you at Washington Photo Safari. We help you see images in a new way, take you to new places, and help you improve your composition.
Then we guide as you click with any camera, whether it be your cell phone or a complex DSLR, helping you use all the features you paid for on your camera. And, yes, we give smartphone-friendly photo tours!
Finally, we review the pictures you have just taken, helping you learn from your mistakes, and giving you hands-on instruction as you retake the photos. We prefer to do this in the field, not in a classroom so that you learn by doing.
