Hillwood Gardens and Museum

Hillwood Gardens and Museum

The gardens of the late Post Cereal heiress Marjorie Merriwether Post are among the most beautiful gardens in the Washington area. Adjoining the very elegant and popular Hillwood Museum in upper northwest Washington, the gardens offer incredible opportunities for photography - the paths, the mansion, the greenhouse, the statuary, and the refurbished Japanese Gardens. You will pick up some tips on garden and estate photography and the use of your Macro lens.
 
The BIG news is that non-flash photography is now allowed inside the Hillwood Museum, with its extraordinary collection of Faberge eggs and other Russian artifacts.  Mr. Luria will provide instruction on low-light shooting without a tripod inside a museum.  The safari fee includes admission to the Museum.

What People Are Saying About David

“David, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the time and concern you have for your students.  You were born to teach!”

“The Safaris in DC are worth every penny and I would highly recommend them to others.  Even though I live and work in DC, David showed me a whole new way to see and photograph the monuments that I walk past everyday.  I got some great photos that I’m thrilled with!  I’ll be looking for more Safaris to take soon.”
