Bowie, MD (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
Washington, D.C., travelers and locals will now have the opportunity to capture stunning photos and hear engaging stories during the area’s first photo tour that includes a sightseeing experience.
PhotoTour Excursions is launching the walking workshop where a professional photographer provides structured and personal instruction on improving photography skills. The experience is rounded out with a discussion of the background and cultural significance of the photography locations.
“Every year millions of people visit the Washington, D.C., area looking for interesting ways to experience our city. In addition, locals often search for opportunities to rediscover D.C.,” said Lynford Morton, PhotoTour Excursions president and lead instructor. “Our excursions offer a fun and engaging way to capture the best of the city.”
PhotoTour Excursions will explore the region with two types of tours. Signature Excursions are recurring workshops featuring three top locations -- Washington, D.C. monuments, Annapolis Harbor, and the trendy Adams Morgan neighborhood. Specialty Excursions are thematic tours that focus on the culture and history of the region, along with the colors of the seasons.
“We’ve boiled down all of the books and volumes of photography instruction to a program called 10 Steps to Great Pictures, and we teach them against the backdrop of some of the most amazing photo ops in the area,” said Morton. “I don’t want you leaving our excursions with your own post card, I want you to be able to assemble your own photo book that you can show off to your friends.”
All skill levels and cameras are welcome on the three- to four-hour walking tours.
