David is a great teacher. I would highly recommend him at any skill level. I am a beginner and he taught me so much about how to take photos and work my camera.

We appreciate this review because it urges people who live in the Dc area to out and appreciate Dc through the lens of their camera! About 75% of our clients are local residents, many of who have never taken the time to smell the roses and see the sights in their own backyard. DC is a very photogenic city and we are proud to show it off to local residents and visitors alike

We appreciate these comments. We feel that the more a person knows about the subject, the better their pictures can be. For example, knowing that the three soldiers in the Three Servicemen Statue who are looking at the Vietnam Memorial are seeing their own names on the wall helps to make one's pictures more dramatic.

This was a great day: i learnt so much about photography, the right angle, the right composition, the right settings on my camera and what to avoid, but also saw Washington from an insider's view, and last but not least got to know some amazing pieces out of the great life story
