- Ask Us About This Safari
There is nothing more satisfying than taking and sharing good pictures of our children and grandchildren. Lauren Ackil can help with that!
Practice live action portraiture
Join us for this annual event as we cautiously wedge our way among the pillow fighters with our cameras, shooting with fast shutter speeds on continuous mode, to get those exciting shots of silly adults acting like children with pillows!
So, in addition to your cherry blossoms photos, this DC photo safari will fill your social media portfolio with the next best thing: fluffy white pillow stuffings!
This is a photo class in sports photography, and after the pillow fight it will be followed by a walk around the Mall to photograph DC in the spring! There will be instruction on travel photography at each step along the way by professional architectural photographer and Washington Photo safari director E. David Luria. Any camera is fine, including smartphones, but we recommend DSLR cameras with rapid shooting capability, wide angle to telephoto zoom lenses, like 18-270 or 16-300mm and adjustable shutter speeds and lens hoods to protect your camera against flying pillows.
Meet at the southwest corner of the intersection of 15th Street and Jefferson Drive SW, by the Circulator Bus stop. Here is a map!
E. David Luria is founder and director of the Washington Photo Safari, which has trained 35,000 amateur photographers – an average of 5 people every day, 365 days a year, since it was founded in 1999. Trained in Paris by a protégé of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mr. Luria is a member of the American Society of Media Photographers and the Society of Photographic Educators and has had his images of DC appear in over 100 publications, calendars, and postcards and on 30 magazine covers.
