NOTE: Bookings require a 24-hour advance notice: (call for last minute bookings ...505-328-5061) We set out from Santa Fe stopping along the way to our destination of Chimayo making photographs of the sculpted landscapes, Sangre de Cristo mountains, Truchas Peaks, and the Jemez. (The history of Chimayo, New Mexico is a long and rich one. The area was first inhabited by the Tewa people, who called it Tsi Mayoh. The Spanish arrived in the 16th century and established a mission there, which was later destroyed in the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. The Spanish returned in the 17th century and rebuilt the mission, which is now known as El Santuario de Chimayó.) Chimayo is an unforgettable location filled with unique local trappings and the Santuario de Chimayo is known for its healing powers and architectural beauty. We arrive in the picturesque village of Chimayo to photograph and explore the surroundings. We take a sit-down break in Chimayo while you learn photo-editing using the app Snapseed. On the way back to Santa Fe we re-visit the Nambe Badlands to make dramatically captivating sunset photographs. Photo-instructions throughout! Emphasis on composition, lens choice, landscape, architectural tips, the creative process, photo editing and, more. This is truly an inspirational 1/2-day photo workshop. Digital cameras and smartphones are welcome. During this workshop, you will experience the dramatic and enchanting beauty of Northern New Mexico while picking up photo insights and gaining a comprehensive understanding of the most important aspect of any art form. COMPOSITION! I suggest taking my 2-hour workshop in Santa Fe as a precursor to the half-day Chimayo workshop; with emphasis on composition, including landscape and portrait photography, along with tips on low-light imaging and creative process. By first taking the photo-instructional tour/Santa Fe you will have learned compositional Please use Venmo if possible. If not follow the booking prompts on the site.
