Capital Photography Center: what do users think?


Diane Donnelly: I have taken a few classes at Capital Photography Center and can say each class exceeded my expectations. Today I took Marie Joabar's Lightroom Library class and it was exceptional. Marie walked us step by step from taking your photo from your computer to importing it into Lightroom then organizing them in an efficient manner. We learned several techniques on how to rate photos and how to locate them when you need to find them. If you are interested in Lightroom and what it can do for you, this class is an absolute must. Thanks, Marie.
Response: It was great having you in the class Diane and I'm thrilled that you came away with more confidence to use Lightroom. Thanks for the kind words about the class and for taking the time to post your feedback.

Gary Stanley: Capital Photography Center is one of Washington's most valuable photography resources. Marie Joabar and her colleagues not only organize great workshops, but they are also a great help by providing one-on-one instruction and serving generally as a network facilitator among Washington photographers.
Response: Thanks for the kind words Gary! It's always a pleasure working with those that want to perfect their skills or just need some guidance getting over the hurdles.

Mo: I decided to take a class on how to use external flash. It was a last minute decision and they were able to accommodate me. The class was great and very informative. Corey the instructor took our questions and guided us through different exercises. I learned a lot and feel more confident in my skills!
Response: Mohammed, thank you for the great review. We're so glad you learned a lot at the class and have more confidence now.

Washington Photo Focus: what do users think?


Carolina Franco: I took Eliot’s introductory DSLR course online via zoom and it was very convenient to be able to attend the lessons from my own living room. I had a little experience with slr photography several years ago but not much experience with my new dslr camera. Other people in the class had no photography experience at all. The small class size gave lots of opportunities to ask questions, and Eliot also gave feedback on the photographs of each of the students. Overall I learned a lot about how to use my camera, and don’t think I’ll be using the auto exposure anymore. Hope to take other courses with Eliot in the future.
Response: Thanks Carolina. It was great working with you - and very nice images that you shared. Looking forward to more classes together.

Paul Kissel: I took two of Eliot's classes after finding him at the Smithsonian. His level of expertise and style of instruction are both thorough and proficient. He has a very nice demeanor and patience to explain complicated processes and techniques. He also offers a great value when compared to other courses on the same topic. I recommend anyone interested in digital photography editing to consider Eliot as an instructor.

Maria Peña: I stumbled upon Eliot´s photography classes through another website and I decided to give it a try. I´m glad I took the class, as Eliot took the fear out of using the many features on my camera, past the auto or program modes! He has a great ability to explain complex processes in a very simple manner, blending in personal anecdotes and amazing artistry. From the very first class, he shows great passion for this craft, which is very contagious! I´ll sign up for more classes down the road, and I´d recommend that you do, too!
Response: Thanks Maria. I'm so glad the class was all you hoped it would be. I'll look forward to sharing more about photography with you in another class.

Lou Kaufman: I have known Eliot since taking several Photoshop courses when he taught at the Smithsonian. He is an excellent photographer and mentor. I've been on several of his workshops and have thoroughly enjoyed them and learned a 'ton' in each one. He has a wonderful way of teaching all things photographic, especially Lightroom and Photoshop. I plan to attend another of his workshops at Zion National Park in March 2015. If you want to improve your photographic skills and post-processing skills, I can't recommend Eliot highly enough.

Cynthia Corio-Poli: My three session class with Eliot of Washington Photo Focus was just what I needed to clear up some of the mystery of digital photography. Eliot is a terrific teacher, very patient, and always answering questions to make the experience a worthwhile pleasure. I look forward to continuing.

Peter Foiles: I have worked with Eliot for over a year and he has a wonderful way of blending artistry and technique in an understandable way, a great mentor.

Manuel Corday: I have taken several of Eliot's classes and love the way he can take a difficult process and make it easy to understand. I would recommend his classes!
Response: Thanks Manny. That's very kind. It's always nice for me to work with people who have the motivation that you have.

David Spanburg: Eliot is a great instructor and photographer.

Lincoln Photography: what do users think?


District Biscuit: I hired Rachel for my company last weekend and am so glad I choose her. I was shopping around and had different options but Rachel was responsive and had a portfolio that impressed me. She communicated before and after the shoot, was on-time, professional and friendly. The photos are outstanding and I plan to use her again. As a small business owner, I know that finding the right people and be hard, I am lucky to have a great photographer in my network.

Nicholas Battaglia: My fiance found Rachel for our engagement photos. Her prices are very reasonable, she was a joy to work with for the actual shoot, and promptly got our pictures back to us, not to mention the photos were wonderful.

Valerie Edwards: Rachel is the most talented photographer and we could not be happier with her work. She was easy to work with, has a fantastic eye, and the finished product exceeded our expectations for our company's photos. Rachel was easy to schedule, and prompt in all aspects. I've worked with many photographers in DC, especially having worked in politics, and Rachel is by far the best I have seen. She has completely impressed me with her versatility -- she can do family portraits, weddings, corporate, and events. We are so pleased we found Rachel and recommend her with 5 stars!

Dan Goodman: I chose Lincoln Photography for my professional head shot because of the outstanding reviews on Google and Yelp and reasonable rates. It was a great decision. Rachel is really easy to work with and takes fantastic pictures. I chose the mini session, which was perfect for me. In a surprisingly short amount of time, she was able to guide me through a wide variety of angles and perspectives for me to choose from, and she took the time to arrange the proofs with her favorites on top.

justmejune22: Rachel is the best photographer you can find. She is energetic, very professional and she takes fantastic pictures. Our family had a photo session with her and despite the fact that we have a very energetic toddler and a 4 months old, she managed to capture some awesome, spontaneous pictures. Highly recommend!

Rachel Gonçalves: Rachel Lincoln is one of the best photographers I worked with. She is very sensitive to subtly changes on facial expressions and/or the environment. Great professional!

Arvin Vohra: I've used Lincoln Photography for both politics and businesses photographs. The results have been excellent, both in terms of their aesthetic and technical qualities. The turnaround time is also much faster than most other photography services, and prices are more than fair.

Billy R: Rachel has a talent for capturing the right moment. She is flexible and patient. Her knowledge of the Washington D.C. area saved me a lot of time when deciding where to shoot. I will certainly do business with her again!

Damon Bowe Photography: what do users think?


Lisa L: WOW! Just WOW! Had to schedule a graduation photo shoot from Texas for my daughter in DC. Not only did Damon make every step so easy but after talking with him on the phone and getting to know him a bit I was even more excited to work with him. He is exceptional...Literally, no other way to describe him. His work style, sense of humor, creativity, patience, you name it are all incredible. The pics we received were outstanding too! Keep in mind that we had no easy task for him... juggling a blended family, a morning when bad weather threatened and a senior pup, he juggled it all effortlessly and made for one of the best and most fun photo sessions I have ever been a part of. I had initially chosen Damon based on the ratings on here and boy they did not let me down. If you are looking for someone with imagination, great communication and a fantastic eye for capturing a special moment in your life book Damon now!!! You will NOT regret it! I only regret that he is so far away from us in Texas..... :)

Ashlei Watson: It was great working with Damon! I knew he was the photographer I wanted to work with for my organization when I submitted a quote, and he in return called me and we talked for about 20 minutes about great advocacy looking locations in DC! He then sent over a map with details on possible photo shoot locations, gave suggestions on transportation, etc. He promised he would deliver on the product that I wanted for our organization and he did not fail!! He was patient with us, treated our children nice, and captured a lifetime of memories for our families and organization. You won't go wrong working with Damon!!
Response: Wow, thank you so much! Our original shooting plan was pretty good, but I'm so happy the Capitol Fencing happened to be removed just before your photoshoot because it allowed us a bit more leeway. Thanks again and please let me know if you ever need more photo help! :)

Iris Hinh: My partner and I were looking for a photographer in Washington, D.C. to capture our graduation photos. I initially found Damon's website on Google and loved the variety of photographs that have been shared on the platform. I contacted Damon via email and phone call to ask questions, and he was very responsive and friendly. It rained the evening before the photoshoot, and the cherry blossoms weren't as lively as we had hoped. Damon contacted us to share his thoughts on the best locations near the mall, including proposing the Smithsonian garden. Damon was patient and kept the whole shoot fun. We really enjoyed the whole experience. From the onset, the contract, details, and follow-up were straight forward very professional. This was our first time taking photos with a photographer, and we would highly recommend him for any and all photography needs!

Brittany Kademian: I'm so glad we booked a cherry blossoms mini session with Damon! He's super down to earth, is great with young kids since he has some of his own, and even gave us a full hour taking great photos instead of the 20 minutes we expected. There were so many good photos that I had a hard time choosing which pictures to keep, and just ended up buying them all. Damon was so easy to work with, and I hope that he will continue mini photo sessions of our family around DC a couple times a year!
Response: Thanks so much! Sometimes it takes longer to work with kids, I try to be generous with my time if I can, glad it worked out and we got some wonderful photographs!

Margie Dwight: Damon Bowe is an incredibly talented photographer! I arrived for my headshot session and he was friendly, accommodating and explained the whole process to me as this was my first headshot experience. Although admittedly self conscious, Damon talked me through as he was taking photographs. We looked at photos together and decided whether to take more or whether we had winners. He was encouraging and enthusiastic. He captured my image and most of all, captured my essence. I felt really good after the session and felt confident that the photo we decided upon was the best to present to the world. I cannot recommend Damon highly enough. I will definitely call upon his talents in the future. He also couldn’t have been nicer! You are in very capable, experienced and gifted hands with Damon!
Response: Thanks Margie! It was so fun meeting you and doing headshots. Looking forward to a branding session in the future!

Lauren Vorisek: Although I was initially a bit skeptical about getting professional headshots taken as I embarked on a career change, I quickly realized how valuable a good photographer is. Damon was not only friendly and professional, but he has great advice about angles and how to pose. He was able to help me pull off that illusive mix of appearing confident without seeming cocky, and serious yet approachable. Damon has a great eye for detail and he has the patience to help steer you to the perfect look. I couldn’t be happier with the results. The hardest part was picking my favorite look.

Jilane Rodgers Petrie: We recently had a fantastic experience with Damon for our family's holiday card mini-session! Our toddler is a joyous little human, but for some reason gets very camera shy. Damon expertly captured our little guy in peak happiness, and mom and dad (and even dog!) somehow all looked great too. Damon was easy to book, gave clear communications and was super efficient during the shoot. We got a lot of amazing images at an incredibly reasonable rate. Our family will be repeat customers, that's for sure! Thank you, Damon!
Response: Thank you so much, Jilane. It was a pleasure to work/play with you guys, cannot wait to do it again!

Heather Lorenzo: This was our first time taking photos as a family of four and we loved working with Damon! He was very responsive ahead of time, giving us tips about what to bring and where to be and when. During the shoot, he knew just where to take us and gave us quick and simple directions to help get natural looking shots with a beautiful background. He's also quick on his feet -- cold rain started coming down during our shoot and yet Damon was able to get some snaps of the kids smiling under the shield of some trees that we'll cherish for a lifetime. For anyone looking for a photographer on the Hill or in the DC area, we highly recommend him.

Jeff Le: Damon has such attention to detail and a passion to capture the best in you. I found the experience so positive. Unlike other photography experiences, he helped me feel at ease, explained what we were trying to achieve, and did it with both grace and humor. That's hard to come by in DC and I loved my photos. I know you will too.
Response: Thanks so much, Jeff! Always great to see you!

Shermineh Jones: My family had a terrific experience with Damon and are absolutely thrilled with the photographs from our fall photo session. I was nervous about picking the right photographer because I have toddler twins - one who is shy around new people and another who'd rather play tag than sit for a photo (not to mention a camera shy dad). Based on great word of mouth from the other mothers in my neighborhood, I chose Damon and I am so glad I did. He made my kids totally comfortable and he knew exactly where to get the best shots around the Capitol so everyone was engaged and had fun. We spent less than half an hour together and I got lots of terrific photographs to choose from (many more than I expected). I highly recommend Damon and plan on having him take our family photos again next year.

Freed Photography: what do users think?


Dusky: The PERFECT Wedding Photographers! Tatiana and Bryan are fabulous. Tatiana took the time to make sure that she surveyed the winery/outdoor venue where my daughter, Brooklyn and her now husband, Levi, were married last summer. It was an evening wedding so the colors of the sky were ever changing; she had all the special equipment for this. The photos are stunning. There are so many perfect ones to choose from! We Are still in awe of the artistic details that Tatiana was able to capture. A year later and we cannot stop smiling! Our family has used Freed Photography twice for Weddings - 2010 (Bryan) and 2018. I recommend them to every bride and groom! Thank you for turning my daughter’s wedding into a tangible moment. Bryan and Tatiana’s talent are unmatched!

Shahrzad Rezvani: We can't say enough about Freed photo! Bryan and Tatiana were fabulous! My husband and I met with Bryan a few weeks before the wedding and loved him! He was honest, to the point and funny. We knew he would be perfect and we were right! On our wedding day, Bryan was with me and Tatiana was with my husband while we were getting ready. My girls and I loved Bryan's calm demeanor and the way he made me feel at ease and not rushed. He was appropriately "bossy" with our family during the family photos. Everyone loved him and Tatiana! They had such an artistic eye and I felt our photos looked beautiful and not cookie cutter. We got the digital copies of our photos while we were on our honeymoon not even 2 weeks after the wedding and loved all of them! Freed is the best in the biz and I would highly recommend using them!

Brooklyn Crouse: Tatiana was my wedding photographer, and she was amazing! She is very hardworking, and my photos turned out gorgeous! It’s been two years since my wedding, and I’m still obsessed with my photos! They capture my husband and I’s love for each other perfectly. I cannot say enough good things! My mom gifted the photos to me, and she loves them too! Worth every penny. 👰🏻🤵🏼

Pamela Churchey: Took my granddaughters spring school pictures. Photos were taken outside. They left her jacket on. Doesn't look like a professional school photo. Looks like an amateur snap shot. We didn't need alot of photos because our family is small but we purchased a package that best suited our needs and added on 1-8x10 for $20.00. Very over priced for a spring photo in which the child was wearing a jacket. But everyone wants their child's school photos so you pay these ridiculous prices.

sunny: Lovely school picture of my kids together. Both smiling and looking at the camera. That's some achievement!
Response: Thanks so much, I am glad you're happy!

Micaylah Loebig: I had such a wonderful experience at Freed Photography. The staff is so lovely as well as the owners Carla and Neil. The photographer who took my senior photos, Bryan, did such an amazing job. I truly felt confident and more beautiful after the photo shoot, he was creative with each shot and made sure I was happy with each set of photos after they were taken. Freed is definitely a great place to get your photos taken at! I highly recommend!

Christine Opdenaker: My daughter had her senior pictures done this year & while yes, the photos are good, I'd need to get a loan to buy them. I'm disgusted at what Freed is charging! What's even worse is they know parents will feel obligated to buy them because they're "Senior Pictures". Well not this parent. I'll take pictures myself, thank you.

Lina Beardall: We have used Freed (more specifically Pablo) many times in the past for family/friend's weddings. So when it was time for our wedding we of course called Freed and booked Pablo. Well a couple days before the wedding we get a call that Pablo is sick and they would replace him with someone else. At this point it was too late to find someone else. The photographer they sent us was TERRIBLE!!! He was rude and acted like he didn't want to be there. He kept referring to my husband's step mom as his mother-which I told him MANY times not to. He didn't want to take the pictures I wanted and rushed everything. All my pictures are awful. I am so angry with Freed that now I urge people not to use them. The owner did nothing to solve the problem after the fact even though I have given them a ton of referrals and my family alone had used them 5 times. I am so disappointed when I see wedding photos from other people. DO NOT USE THEM!!!

Mahshad G: HOT MESS! I received my daughters school photos and they were bent which i'm not upset about b/c things happen. What was disgraceful is i emailed Freed photography and left 2 VM , both with details and no one called me back. I called a week later and someone picked up and spent almost 10 mins trying to find my daughter in their system which was ridiculous to me. I'm giving them a low rating based off bad service, not the actual quality of the photo.

Gillian Thomas: School photos of my 1st grader were fairly awful. Lighting was terrible (whose idea was it to take individual school pictures outside?!) No one bothered to make sure my 6-yr old's hair was smoothed down or that his shirt wasn't a wrinkled mess, etc...typical little things that would take literally 2 seconds to correct and are so very appreciated by the parents who pay for these photos. We do what we can as parents, but by the time the kid has their pic taken, their hair and clothing will def need smoothed out again, and I feel some care could have been taken with that. Also, the poses were unnatural looking and just overall a poor quality photograph. When I had my child do re-takes a couple weeks later, I was told they were not on the site yet even though at that point it had been quite a while since they'd been taken. I was also given no help when I had difficulty getting back into their site. Not a satisfactory experience. I hope my son's school uses someone else next year.

Imagery by Erin: what do users think?


Caroline Leverett: I hired Erin for my wedding photographer and she did such an amazing job! The pictures came out fabulous! She had the exact look I was going for and the pictures truly looked like they were suppose to be on the cover of a bridal magazine! She also did a great job with direction and getting everyone who was getting their picture taken to take her direction. I would definitely recommend her!

Elizabeth Crunk: My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Erin for our engagement photos and had a wonderful experience all around. In fact, he and I both agreed that our engagement session with Erin was one of our favorite things we did during wedding planning! Erin is very professional, responsive, and talented -- our engagement photos were stunning. I especially appreciate how she helped us pose for photos and created a fun environment for our photo session. As an added bonus, she loves working with dogs -- even our energetic Boston Terrier! We highly recommend Erin and would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Tom V.: Hiring a photographer for our wedding was a decision that we took incredibly seriously. We read tons of reviews, but without working with someone or getting recommendations from friends, how can you really know? Erin worked with us to make sure we were comfortable, and let us do our engagement shoot before signing a wedding contract. She’s incredibly professional, and we were so happy with the photos. We got her on contract after receiving our engagement photos, and we’re so glad we did. Working with her directly meant she had flexibility to work with us on all the details. She knew going into the wedding exactly what we wanted, and delivered. She made sure we stood up straight, that we were where we needed to be at all times, and the pictures came out better than we could have hoped. She worked quietly in the background all night, pulled us aside when needed, and was just constantly professional. We’ve received a number of unprompted compliments from family members on Erin. Not just on the pictures, but on the way she worked during the wedding itself. While we’re still waiting on the final set of pictures, I would definitely recommend Erin.

Tamara Ellis: I can't say enough about Erin- although her work speaks for itself! She was not my original wedding photographer- I hired her after the wedding to do some bridal portraits, as I was disappointed in the job my wedding-day photographer did. She took the time to listen to what I wanted and was able to give me beautiful portraits, exactly what I wanted. She is easy and fun to work with and completely prepared and knowledgeable about how to bring out the best in you for your pictures. If you want spectacular pictures, work with Erin!

Stephanie Halsne: We hired Erin for our engagement photo session right DC opened back up after COVID. She was able to schedule us quickly despite dealing with a ton of reschedules. The day of the shoot she was super accommodating and patient working with us as we brought along our two dogs. She even brought a squeaky toy to hold their attention! The price was super reasonable, and Erin was able to get our photos back to us 9 days before we expected. Would recommend!

Chelsea S: Erin was great! We used her for our engagement photos first, and then signed on for our wedding photos. She was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. We were very unaccustomed to being in front of the camera, especially for formal/professional pictures. She gave us excellent directions and made us feel much more at ease. We loved how our engagement photos turned out, but (almost) more importantly, they showed us what poses worked best and what we liked and didn’t like. We met with Erin to discuss all we’d learned during the engagement shoot, and she was really receptive, and excited that the first photo session had served its purpose of being a test run for the wedding. For the big day itself, Erin was amazing! She was, of course, prompt, and prepped and ready to go. She had visited our venue a few days prior and knew exactly where she wanted to photograph us. I (the bride) was running late, so she used this time to snap pics of my accessories, flowers, and dress. But she was also so much fun to chat with, and helped me stay calm! She remembered all the things we mentioned from our engagement session, and gave us lots of posing cues, and reminders to stand up straight and turn this way or that way, to make us look our best and most natural. With so many other things to remember on our big day, it was a huge weight off to have her take care of all that! We don’t have our full gallery of wedding photos yet, but the ‘sneak peek’ she sent out is awesome. It’s a really nice touch that she sends you a quick sample after your photo session, and has enabled us to share some beautiful memories with family and friends. We’re so excited to see the rest!

crystal young: C: My Fiancé had been talking about wanting to get pictures done. We live in separate states, so the planning was extremely last minute. Erin made it work for my schedule and when he was going to be in town. She responded so quickly and provided so much information so that I was able to surprise my fiancé. The photos were amazing and showed her abilities to make us both move so the photos come out perfect! Thank you! K: I would highly recommend Erin. She is a constant professional. She takes her time and really listens to what her customers want. Erin arrived with a game plan when my beautiful fiancée surprised me with engagement session. She took the time to understand what we were looking for and figured out how to capture our special moment. The photos came out amazing!

Shony R: UPDATE 3/24/19: Long story short- we never received our "free prints" for the "positive reviews" we were requested to leave BY Erin, the photographer. After multiple attempts and paying for additional prints, Erin has dropped off the face of the earth, will not respond to any questions regarding what happened, and we still have not received our wedding photos (after providing 2 separate addresses)or a refund. While she did seem a bit impatient during our shoot, I assumed it was because of the humidity and time crunch we were under for the location. Now I believe that it was a part of her nature in that she did not want to put forth max effort to ensure her clients were satisfied with their results. Mostly beautiful photos, but not a professional experience overall. In my opinion, the experience before, during, and after contribute to the review. _______________________________ From beginning (planning a wedding in 2 months) to end, Erin was great! She made herself available to our special day and helped me be at ease with not knowing how this whole thing was supposed to go. She gave my husband and I exactly what we wanted (candid/depth/classic shots). And although she worked alone, based on our photos you would think there were two of her. She withstood the humidity with us, seemed mostly patient with our not so co-ordinated guests and wedding party, and let us know that she was there for us....not just to do a job. I would recommend Erin to anyone looking for an experienced, versatile, and timely photographer for their special day! She truly captures the moments that capture your heart. Thank you so much Erin!! - The Rocketts

Rachel Phoebus: We are very happy not just with how our pictures turned out, but also with the whole experience. Erin will make you feel comfortable and confident. She is able to discern with just a little feedback what types of shots you will prefer (and she welcomes and seeks out this feedback). Her photos are natural yet romantic. As one of our friends described, “they look so fairy tale.” We definitely would consider asking her for other photography services in the future.

Hera Nguyen: I've never been good at taking pictures. But Erin made it so easy to pose for them. She also made it super fun and laid-back so we weren't too nervous for the shoot. She really knows her stuff! The photos came out so beautiful and intimate; exactly the way I wanted!! I asked her to get as many pictures of my nieces and nephews at the wedding, and when I saw the sneak peek, I knew I was in for a treat! She was super patient with us even when we completely forgot to get permits for our photo shoot. It was super dumb, but she was so understanding. Would definitely recommend!

Smithsonian Associates: what do users think?


Bec215 H.: One of my earliest memories is a behind the scenes tour of the Smithsonian natural history museum at age 5. Still love the museums, but the Resident Associates programs are an amazing way to add a new dimension to life-long learning, beyond reading books or watching videos. The pandemic has made far more events accessible to us, as all content has moved to Zoom, and I hope the SA leadership will recognize the value of continuing to offer virtual programming beyond the pandemic time. As for content, we've enjoyed everything from a lecture on Mongolian history we attended a few months prior to our trip to Mongolia to beginning drawing, to a lecture on the history of American food culture since 1850. My mom is 75 and disabled, but still curious about the world and wanting to learn, and she loves loves loves these events - it gives her new things to learn and piques her curiosity about the world, and also gives her things to talk about with family and friends that enrich her social life. I've noted the lack of cultural diversity especially in the history/literature-related programming, and would like to see more Asian history and arts content. For me the issue of content diversity is separate from the value the content that they produce and the quality of it, which so far has been nothing but outstanding. Engagement is what motivates change, so I hope as membership grows and diversity expands, so will their programming.

Jennifer Gelman: My husband and I have been members of the Smithsonian Associates for quite a few years now. We almost always enjoy the programs and trips, although a few have been duds. Tonight's program was celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Sound of Music. You can attend programs without being a member, but members get discounts on all of the programs. Many of the lectures are at the Ripley Center (where the African and Asian art museums are). The lecturers are experts in their fields.

Kenya Allmond: I've attended many of the Smithsonian Associates programs over the years. They are always informative and engaging. One of my favorite programs featured an astronomer who. along with his team, examines the sky in famous paintings and could tell you the day in history that the paintings were composed. It was an excellent melding of arts and sciences.

Julia Thomas: Registered for online classes but they've been sending the zoom links to someone else's email address. Missed the classes. Customer service of no help. Wasted $200.

Eric Epstein: We have been museum members for almost 20 years. We love the culture, the talks and experience.

Georgette Dorn: Tried to through by phone or email to ask for information about Studio Art classes. No luck. Website and phone tree most unhelpful.

Bikramjeet Singh: If it will be live video then it will be awesome

Jim Blount: Awesome history of the great USA. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Amanda Donohue Photography: what do users think?


Mel Heflin: I'm so grateful! This is exactly the cake smash I was looking to do! Amanda made everything so easy to get amazing pictures of a very, very hyper 1 year old that just wants to run around the studio. She had a plan and made the process and pictures amazeballs! 10/10 would recommend. I can't be more grateful for these photos.

Kate Shoemaker: We chose Amanda to take our newborn photos after seeing her amazing gallery and good reviews, and she exceeded every expectation we had. Amanda captured truly special and extremely high quality photos of our new baby. The experience in her studio was so fun and stress-free. Amanda absolutely has “the touch” to make both newborns and their parents 100% comfortable. Not to mention the endless selection of props and cute outfits, which she helped us narrow down but allowed us to make our own choices on. We received the final photos on time and will treasure them forever!

Jessie S: Amazing photographer and amazing with toddlers! She took the time to play with our son for a bit before the photo shoot so he wasn't scared or bashful at all and then got some great shots of him!

Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at GW: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: The current exhibit has some very interesting photos, paintings, and sculpture. It would have helped so much to have some information about the pieces.

Austin Graff: The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design is in the old Corcoran Museum flanking the Executive Building by the White House. It's centrally located in Washington, D.C and a beautiful space. It's in an old building set up like a museum making the school's art shows out of this world. There are spiraling staircases, courtyards and room after room of beautifully designed art. If you get invited to an event here, say yes!

Gigi G.: Attended a graduate open house and learn a lot about the program and met some staff of other programs and they were fabulous to hear from.

Yesica Suarez: Architecturally, the buildong is awe inspiring. I think it really captures your eyes. The exhibitions for the Lone Prairie, Breaking Cultural Boundaries, Cartoons and the Color exhibitions were interesting. They definitely were trying to tell a meaningful story. I think the cartoon exhibit was successfully set up, but the others needed more content and guidance to trully unfold. There's ton of space to work with in the building so it needed to be used effectively so it wouldn't feel empty

Luis B: Corcoran School is mainly focused on promoting the arts. Friends of mine who have attended the college have had both good and bad things to say based on their experiences. One of the pros of the school is the events and gallery showings that often take place within it's walls. If you're a DC native, or city walker, you may want to check up on Corcoran and see what's going on from time to time.

Asad Jan: The Corcoran Gallery of Art was an art museum in Washington, D.C. Prior to its closing, it was one of the oldest privately supported cultural institutions in the United States capital. Starting in 1890, a museum school, later known as the Corcoran College of Art + Design, co-existed with the gallery. The museum's main focus was American art. In 2014, after decades of financial problems, the Corcoran entered into an agreement with the National Gallery of Art (NGA) and the George Washington University whereby almost all of the gallery's 17,000 work collection was placed under the care of the NGA, while the school and historic 17th street gallery building continued operations as a part of the George Washington University's new Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.

Yaser AlSaghrji: One of the architectural gems of the Nation Capital

Es K: Saw a phenomenal end of year exhibit some years ago

Nik Novakkain: So much talent and this is one of the best schools/museum

Arnold Thomas Bigger: Course selection is very good; faculty and staff are very good; and general vibe is good.

Dominion Camera: what do users think?


jingwatube: I believed those good reviews and went to the shop. I was there at least 3 times, most of them were bad experiences. Yesterday I was there to print pictures, 15 minutes job took me 45 minutes. Till the last minute the "technician" still don't know what's the problem and how to fix it. It was I - a client - suggested to him to use an extra usb flash to resolve the issue. I explained to him that I wanted passport like photos, even specifically showed to him what's the size of head in the picture that I wanted. Today I went to get the printouts and found those pictures were totally unacceptable. Not only the size of the heads were not what I wanted, but the heads are not even whole. They refund me the money of course with no problem, but they tared those pictures in front of me in pieces like those pictures meant nothing to me. Seem to me very unprofessional. I'm sure some of their works worth the 5 star those reviewers gave to them. But I got only 1 star services. May be they have double or even multiple standards for their shop policy. This shop always give me an impression that they don't care to have my business. Whatever I cannot do by myself, they cannot do neither or they can only do it in a ridiculous high price - or I better don't bother the shop. I regret that I donated some of my used and brand new camera related items to this shop. Most likely I won't bother this shop any more. It never happened as in their reply that "you would have seen the on the Kiosk before they were ordered/printed". If I had seen the output on their machine I'd never put the order at first place.
Response: I am sorry you feel that way, we try hard to help all of our customer with the utmost professionalism and go out of our way to be courteous and go the extra mile.. First, as a store policy, we we always destroy returned customer pictures before throwing them away to protect the privacy of our customers and the subjects of the pictures. We tried to explain to you that the pictures that you got, you would have seen the on the Kiosk before they were ordered/printed and that is what we delivered. If you did not like the option, you could have told us at the time and we could have made a passport like picture or custom picture for about 10 times the cost you originally paid. These options were discussed with you today, and It was clear from the conversation that you were not interested in any of them, and that is why we refunded your money without any questions. We try to help ALL of our customers.. that is our passion and our purpose and again, we sorry you are not happy with what you received from Dominion Camera

Sherry Garay: I am an amateur photographer and I used to drive out to Burke to another local camera shop. I decided to give Dominion a try, and I am so glad I did! This is a locally owned “mom and pop” business and it feels good to support a small local business, instead of putting more money in the pocket of a man who wants to play around in outer space. The staff at the store are super knowledgeable. One of them used to work for Canon and can tell you everything you need to know about Canon gear. They helped me make my decision on moving to a new mirrorless camera. I believe they are the only local shop that does their film developing on site. They also do black and white developing by hand. My prints look better than they have in years! They also sell an array of cool films to play around with. I picked up a roll of Dracula film from Romania. They also take passport photos and guarantee them as acceptable by the State Department. I also just found out their classes have started back up and they have a studio space upstairs they rent out. Seriously, if you are a pro photographer or just an amateur like me, then support this local business. This is a great camera shop, with just about anything you could possibly need, including a used gear bargain shelf!

Jessica Border: Who ever said the customer service was good is delusional. I went in to get my film developed. He asked me if I wanted prints or digital and I said both. He told me that he can’t do both and if I wanted it, I need to do prints first, then when I come to pick up, I can order the digital copies. He was so rude to me. I won’t ever come hear again, I was literally about to walk out from the horribleness if this experience, which is a real shame.
Response: Hello. I am sorry you feel that way. We can definably do prints and digital files to USB or CD but we no longer are able to combine internet uploads and prints. You see, we used to offer upload and prints, but then people never came in to pick up the pictures. When we called customers to ask them to pick up their prints, they would tell us that after after they saw the digital images they did not want the prints and told us to throw them away. since the prints were not paid for we lost money on the prints In order to keep our costs under control, We had to make the difficult decision to stop that combination. The good thing is that once you get your digital files you can go to our website dominioncamera.com and order the prints you want. Again, I am sorry if my staff did not explain this well to you but we are committed to help our customers at all costs. If you would like to share your thoughts directly please call the store and ask for Gary Thanks!

Mike Tike: Gary is the best. I was looking for ZV-E10 ( sold out everywhere you can check that right now) but I swore it was sold out. He told me hd actually had one and the color I wanted. He looked all over the store and finally found it. That’s customer service you won’t find at Best Buy. I’m so happy with my purchase this is the only place I’m going to for camera equipment and vlogging gear.

W Russell: I found this place by walking around Falls Church. For a photographer or anyone interested in any level of photography, this place has it all! Prices are reasonable and the customer service is 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟!! Gary, the owner, is super friendly and knowledgeable in his products. GREAT PLACE!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Keep up the great work Dominion!

Michael Ryan: Really good experience over several visits to Dominion Camera. The team, especially Gary, are really knowledgeable and helpful. Some highlights: - Fixed my film camera for free after taking it in - Good film development and quick turnaround - Spent several days and hours going over a new camera to purchase. They were helpful and patient to make sure I got what would fit my needs. Highly recommend.

Daniel Ramirez (NiceWaffles): I've been here a few times, out of all of the camera stores I've been at so far. These have been the nicest people. That may not be shocking but if you visit some camera stores in DC, the staff aren't so nice over there. But these people here at Dominion camera so really kind and helped me select which lenses to purchase for my camera I highly recommend this shop! My favorite camera shop :)

Jim Arnold: I'm not a camera guy, nor am I that much of a tech guy in general. All I know is that I had a giant bag of film that I inherited from my late mother who never got around to developing it. Dominion Camera was the only place I found to help me develop/scan all of it, and their customer service and staff won me over the whole time. As simple as each transaction was, they made me enjoy stopping in and took care of me the whole way through (and made sure I didn't get charged for scans on blank film!). My bag of film is now empty and I wish I had a reason to continue giving this hometown shop my money; I really appreciate them.

sahra ahmad: I’ve been meaning to write this review for a while now. I love supporting small businesses, and this one is one of my favorites. It is right near my office and taking my film to get developed and print is so nice. I appreciate that unlike the big corporations (CVS, Walmart, etc) they only make you pay for the photos that they found, so if a piece of film was bad, they don’t charge you for a print of that. I also enjoy that it is so quickly done! Unlike the big corporations that take up to like 2 weeks, they took only a fraction of that time. The quality of the picture paper was nice too- I always go with a matte finish. Nicest people ever work there, and overall I would highly recommend! I know this sounds like a fake review, but I promise this is 100% legit. I can’t wait to take more of my film to get developed.

Cory Concha: Outstanding film processing, much better than any pharmacy service, and they're capable of same day service if you drop off your film by 10 am on the days they process. Definitely the highest quality prints and scans I've ever gotten and for the same price as the pharmacy locations who take two weeks and never return your negatives. With that said I interacted very sparingly with the staff and have not used any other services/purchased any other equipment from them, so I have no perspective in that regard. But I can safely and highly recommend them for film processing.
