Photographs provide a more concrete way of recording recollections than sketching portraits in sand or dictating memoirs to an empty jam jar. Preserve precious memories with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a half-day photo walk from Premier Photo Tours (a $99 value), which guides photo snappers through a variety of locations in the metropolitan DC and mid-Atlantic areas.
Chief photography instructor Stu Estler aims to assist newcomers and seasoned shutterbugs alike in improving their craft, while encouraging guests to look at their surroundings in a new light. A half-day photo walk immerses camera-toting citizens lens-deep in beautiful natural environments. While walking and snap-shooting, the talented guide will provide on-site tips and tricks to capture a perfect moment without a rogue gull spoiling the shot. Choose from tour themes including cherry blossoms, harbor walks, and shooting in twilight, often called the magic hour due to its flattering light and abundance of feral Merlins. Sight seekers/capturers are advised to bring a trusty camera and a good pair of walking shoes to ensure quality grabs and a comfortable journey.
Premier Photo Tours
In the shadow of national monuments and blooming trees, a chorus of camera shutters click while photographers usher once-fleeting moments into eternity. Premier Photo Tours' staff helps foster such experiences, giving shooters skills with which to go after their photographic pursuits. Each a combination of instructor and guide, the company's camera pros lead themed walks around town that teach kids and adults how to frame scenic shots or get a stubborn art sculpture to smile. Deeper instruction comes in the form of Photo Mentor classes for photographers who want to take a more artistic and technically savvy approach in any stage of their photography development. During any of Premier's sessions, snappers have the opportunity to build community with one another around their budding talents, which can be enhanced on group travel excursions to some of the world's most photogenic locales.
