As a resident of the Washington area and an enthusiastic amateur photographer, I've taken over a dozen of David Luria's photo safaris and learned something new about photography on each one. On each safari, he not only orients the group as a whole, but he also spends one-on-one time with each student, gearing his advice to the level of sophistication of that individual. His knowledge of photographic technique and his unlimited patience make him one of the best photography instructors I've encountered. I highly recommend his tours. --Greg E.
