Do you want to take your photography out of the ordinary
... and into the extraordinary?



Do you want to learn how to make stunning photographs? Do you want to do it in a small, intimate photo workshop where you can spread out, seek your own vision, and find your own subject, not stand shoulder to shoulder with a gaggle of photographers?

With workshops limited to 12 participants sharing two instructors (maximum 6:1 ratio), you can be assured of lots of individual attention, help, and critiques. In fact, we are working with you the entire time in both the field and classroom. In addition, because of our small group size, we have gained access to some private areas that cannot handle larger groups.

We continue to be blown away by the work our students produce in our workshops, their student comments, and the high percentage of returning alumni. We also welcome non-photographing spouses, SOs, and friends, as they really enjoy our groups, too.

And we haven't even mentioned the fun factor and the laughs everyone shares from Day One!

We always love it when we hear from many of our participants that they have won awards and been accepted into galleries and juried shows after joining us for one or more of our workshops.

Also, it is wonderful to see and hear of the friendships that last well beyond the workshop!

So, join Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures for long, fun, intensive days in which you'll have a great time while learning to seek and refine your own creative vision, whether in a regularly-scheduled photo workshop, a private workshop of your choosing, by scouting and photographing with the instructors before a workshop and receiving some added instruction, or coming in a day ahead for a workshop to get some intensive instruction on the latest version of Lightroom (contact us for this).

We also have gift certificates for those who want to give a workshop (or part of a workshop) as a present.

While we (Margo and Arnie) don't tell you exactly what to photograph, we take you to great locations and pride ourselves on giving you the tools — understanding the magic of light, elements of composition, knowledge of color, and processing techniques — that will help inspire you to create more compelling photographs, regardless of your experience level. 

Our student galleries speak to the success of our philosophy.

We can also help those who are interested develop a logical, efficient workflow that will make the storage and processing of your images easier.

Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures has been around since the early 80s, and with our track record as seasoned, working pros with many decades of teaching experience, you will learn a lot!

And while we may sometimes photograph with you, our first commitment is always to give you, the participant, the most rewarding photographic and learning experience possible.

We are proud to report that some of our students have won awards and been accepted into juried shows! In addition, Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures has been featured quite a number of times in magazines and articles, as you can see here.
