National Airport Safari

National Airport Safari

This safari is offered through our partnership with Capital Photography Center.

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport provides many opportunities for good exterior and interior architectural photography. 

The huge picture windows, the Jeffersonian-style arching domes, and the built-in artwork of architect Cesar Pelli’s $300 million Terminal B/C at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport provide many opportunities for good exterior and interior architectural photography. Our Safari will also visit the interesting and photogenic corridors of old Terminal A.

With exclusive permission we have obtained from the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority, we can use tripods to photograph the vaulting ceilings, the built-in artwork, and the long views down the main concourse, a good exercise in mixed lighting work.

We'll also take the opportunity to capture images of the airport from the roof of one of the parking garages (weather permitting).

At each point on this safari we will review techniques of composition, exposure and lighting.

Tripods allowed and encouraged.
