New Mexico | August 17–25, 2014
Spectacular New Mexico
August 17–25, 2014 | Harvey Stein
New Mexico has been described as a place of inviolate, pristine beauty, engendering an almost spiritual feeling for the land and the overwhelming sense of peacefulness. Since the 1880s, photographers and artists—Georgia O'Keeffe, Paul Strand, Ansel Adams, Laura Gilpin, Eliot Porter—have been irresistibly drawn to the incredible landscape, brilliant clear light, and rich Native American heritage. Join us for a photographic adventure based at an historic hacienda in Taos, one of the first European settlements in the United States. Taos is a many-faceted city: frontier outpost, Hispanic village, growing art center, and small Western town. Our private van will transport the group to the lofty peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the spectacular scenery of the Rio Grange Gorge, and the wondrous hills of O'Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch area. We will photograph Native American pueblos, adobe structures, historic churches, and local festivals and spend a day exploring Santa Fe and Las Vegas, New Mexico (like going back in time forty years). Instruction covers strategies of approaching strangers and the appropriate lens choices, as well as issues of landscape photography, portraiture, and photographing in all kinds of available light. The workshop is open to all levels of photographers who have a good working knowledge of their cameras. Moderate hiking and walking are required in this fast-paced, information-packed workshop. Limited to 14 participants.
Workshop fee: $2,800. Fee includes 8 nights of lodging (double occupancy; $700 extra for single supplement), all breakfasts, most lunches, and one welcome dinner. A nonrefundable $500 deposit must accompany your registration to reserve a space. Placement is on a first come, first serve basis so we urge early registration. Upon receipt of registration, participants will receive an information packet with travel suggestions and recommended material to bring..
