The Maritime Heritage Project was established by D. Blethen Adams Levy in 1998 to preserve maritime history during the 1800s with a focus on the port of San Francisco. This research has led to the inclusion of extensive passenger lists on the site and tours to more than 30 world ports, as reflected in the images on this site.

Selections from our world travel are now offered through our gallery at Artist Rising.
In line with new goals, photo walking tours around the world are in the future. We will contact experts on location who know their cities and cameras inside out. (Actually, any excuse to travel will do.) Also, shooting with a group helps you to see more as everyone has a different perspective and different level of expertise.
Professional guides around the world lead photo walking tours in ancient, dramatic, culturally-rich cities such as:
~Amsterdam: Amsterdam is an easy city to navigate on your own, however, there are places you might be reluctant to go as a single traveler, such as the backstreets through the Red Light District -- which you really do NOT want to miss.
~Florence, Italy: This tour around the exquisite City of Renaissance includes a focus on light and shadows, colors, forms, photographic techniques, "how to get the best photos in every situation," and "how to be always ready to capture the moment."
~Istanbul: Beyazid Square, the Covered Bazaar, Sultanahmed Mosque, Eminou, Galata Bridge on Golden Horn . . .
