Franciscan Monastery at Tulip Time

Modeled after Istanbul’s Hagia Sofia, the Franciscan Monastery is a photographer's dream

Quick Details


This Byzantine-style church, modeled after Istanbul’s Hagia Sofia, is a photographer’s dream. Its classic arches, lovely statuary, magnificent gardens and unique inscriptions provide a great training ground for architectural photography and for posing people in a beautiful, floral setting, with the instructor providing tips on composition, lighting and exposure.

If the church is open, our itinerary will also include the interior of the church for tips on interior photography and stained glass window photography without flash.

Fee includes $10 donation to the Monastery.
