Photography Tour Overview:
From Washington DC to Boston, Massachusetts, via Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and Cape Cod . . . a grass roots photography trip of the American eastern seaboard. Photography locations will include Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston, plus harbors, and lighthouses as we make our way to Cape Cod.

As with all of our photography tours, early and late shooting is scheduled for each day.
