Steps of Learning

Dazzled and bewildered by all the choices on our calendar? We understand!

Here are some step-by-step suggestions for people who are visiting Washington Photo Safari™ for the first timeBased on the experience of clients who have taken multiple Safaris since 1999:

Digital SafarisLearn a specific camera model, or get a handle on photo software

Check out our Safaris by Skill Sets. Attend one of our Canon or Nikon SLR camera-specific Safaris where we review all the camera’s menu items inside and outside the National Museum of the American Indian. We offer classes on how to take awesome photos with your iPhone, too!


Monuments and Memorials

Learn how to use that camera in the field

You’ve got to take our most popular Safari: Monuments and Memorials, a workshop in travel photography, offered every Wednesday and Saturday and occasional Sundays. Or check out our F Stops and Shutter Speeds offered on alternate Fridays and occasional weekend days, or our Monuments At Night Safari offered on alternate Friday evenings. If it’s spring, the best way to enjoy the Cherry Blossoms is with us!
