Santa Fé and Taos are considered by many to be the oldest cultural centers of the Southwest, perhaps even of the whole United States, and for good reason.
Photographers and other artists have created stunning work from here. Think of the beautiful pottery of the Pueblo Indians, the wonderful abstract paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe, the writings of Willa Cather and D.H. Lawrence, and photographs made by such masters as Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Laura Gilpin, Timothy O'Sullivan, William Henry Jackson, and Edward Curtis. In fact, it is hard to come to this area, with its plethora of subject matter, and not be artistically inspired.
Join us, as we show you our favorite locations, from ancient pueblos to classic adobe churches, broad landscapes, and intimate views.
We will be based in two areas, beginning with a charming B&B on the outskirts of Taos and ending at a traditionally-styled inn within walking distance of the famous Santa Fé Plaza.
The oldest capital city in the US and the first one to be included by UNESCO in the Creative Cities Network, Santa Fé is a center for the arts, including photography. Taos Pueblo, listed in UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, is among the oldest and an amazing place to photograph as shown in the many galleries that abound in this city.
We will explore areas that Georgia O'Keeffe and other famous artists loved to depict and interpret in their works, from fantastical, geological structures, so ancient buildings, a living culture going back 1,000 years, and landscapes backed by dramatic skies.
And speaking of skies, because of the moon phases whilst we are there, we may have the opportunity to do some starlit skies.
For those who want more time with Margo and Arnie, we offer the opportunity to scout and shoot with them before most of our domestic workshops. We limit this to two people per day who ride in the car with the instructors. During these days while Arnie and Margo do their own photography and final scouting for the workshop, there is also lots of individual instruction and discussions about photography.
We start out with some technical information before heading out for our first afternoon of photography. Our workshops include the following:
Maximum 6-to-1 ratio students to instructors
Opening wine-and-pizza reception;
Primer booklet to help you get started;
Early-morning and late-afternoon shoots;
Mid-day downloading of your images and processing with the latest version
Lots of individual instruction in both the field and classroom;
Daily critiques, both individual and group;
Discussions on various aspects of photography, including digital workflow; and
Lots of fun and frivolity throughout!
You will also receive written instructions on the ins and outs of successfully and easily turning your favorite digital
images into beautiful prints straight out of the latest version of Lightroom using your own printer.
