Annapolis is naturally photogenic, but the summer offers additional treats as locals get together to enjoy the balmy weather.  Here are some offerings we especially like:

The Wednesday Night Races sponsored by the Annapolis Yacht Club. Sailboats galore! A great vantage point is the Eastport Bridge. 

Naval Academy Band Concerts  on Tuesday evenings at the City Dock

1st Sunday Art Festival on West Street. Great street fairs, running through October

Renaissance Festival in Crownsville, MD.  The drive normally takes about 15 minutes from downtown Annapolis, but can be longer due to festival traffic. 

Further afield, we also like:

Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, on the Maryland side of Washington D.C. The Garden's lotuses are spectacular in June/July.

Spend a fun morning with us and improve your photography for a great summer's shooting. WORKSHOPS
