National Cherry Blossom Festival Photo Safari to Washington DC-Robert DiTommaso


Each year Washington DC springs to life with the National Cherry Blossom Festival.  Join Bob in Washington DC Photo Safari from Friday, April 4, 2014 through Monday, April 7, 2014.  The small group will be exploring the beautiful spring in our Nation's Capital as well as all the architectural beauty that abounds in Washington DC.  

The group will be stationed at the Washington Marriott at the Metro Center.  This hotel is just a few blocks from all the action - the White House, the Mall and the Metro stop!  Staying in the heart of Washington allows the group to explore and photograph as well as stop back at the hotel from time to time.  The group will be photographing the City in daytime as well as at night.

Bob has scoped out interesting angles and beauty spots throughout the City.  Washington DC shines with spring flowers and beauty in early April.  We selected the dates in order to obtain reasonable room rates (for Washington DC).  The room is $239 per night plus tax for either a room with (2) doubles or a room with (1) king.  Parking is included in the "special" price.  (This is a $50 a night savings.)  We will help coordinate roommates for those who are interested in sharing a room and sharing the drive to Washington DC.

We are working on carpool plans!  Call us if you are interested in joining the group on this Photography Adventure!  (248)[masked]

    It rained all the way there and all the way home, but the weather was amazing while we were there. It was a great group of photographers, very flexible with the planning and eager to try different things.
    I had a very enjoyable time, a mixture of shooting and assisting others with their photography.
    Washington DC provided a nice variety of subject matter and lighting conditions. I have been many times and will certainly be going back.
    My thanks to all who attended for making it a truly enjoyable adventure.

    This was a fun trip. We woke up early both weekend mornings and captured nice sunrise photos over the Capitol and Washington Monument.

    My dad and I really enjoyed the trip to Holland last year and are looking forward to traveling with you again. This should be a fun adventure!

      I am really looking forward to this trip as well. DC never disappoints. We will see and photograph a great variety of things.

    I am thinking about signing up. I am going to the Photoshop World in Atlanta Starting April 7. My Question Is: What are the plans for April 7 on the Washington tour? Is a full day? I can always get to Atlanta on the 8th and not miss too much if I can leave at a reasonable hour from Washington on the 7th.

      Sheri, If you are flying out to Atlanta on Monday, you could depart at whatever time you need. I would think the group would break up by 12 noon regardless - just to make the drive home for those driving. Juliann DiTommaso
