Since the 1880s, photographers and artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Paul Strand, and Ansel Adams, among others, have been irresistibly drawn to the incredible landscape, brilliant clear light, and rich Native American heritage of New Mexico.
Join us for a photographic adventure based at an historic hacienda in Taos, one of the first European settlements in the United States, which has many facets to its personality as a frontier outpost, Hispanic village, growing art center, and small Western town. We will explore the lofty peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the spectacular scenery of the Rio Grande Gorge, and the wondrous hills of Georgia O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch area. We will also photograph Native American pueblos, adobe structures, historic churches, and local festivals; spend a day exploring Santa Fe; and enjoy another day in Las Vegas, New Mexico, a picturesque Western town with more than 900 historical buildings. Frequent lectures combined with daily photographic activity will offer a rich input of technical and aesthetic concerns. Digital shooting and workflow will provide the opportunity for quick feedback and critiques of our daily trips.
This travel workshop is open to photographers of all levels who have a good working knowledge of their cameras. Moderate hiking and walking will be required in this fast-paced, information-packed workshop. Limited to 14 participants.
