You could spend a day in here and not see all of the spectacular exhibits this museum has to offer. Renovated and reopened in 2006, the National Portrait Gallery/ American Museum of Art is a photographer’s delight, and most of the exhibits are open to photography.
Our safari, led by Paris-trained professional architectural photographer and Washington Photo Safari director E. David Luria helps you photograph the incredible works of art on display, including the portraits of the Presidents, the spectacular 3rd Floor mezzanine, the gallery of contemporary art and sculpture and the new 28,000 sq. ft. Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard, with its soft light and undulating glass and steel roof designed by world-renowned architect Norman Foster.
On this safari you will learn how to use your smartphone to photograph works of art in a museum without flash or tripod. Properly done under Mr, Luria’s guidance, your images will be so good that they can be enlarged, matted, printed on canvas, framed, and hung in your home to look as good as the original signed artwork! If you would like to decorate your home with art from the great masters, this safari will teach you how to do that at a MUCH lower cost than bidding at a Sotheby’s auction!
