At the end of next month, I’ll be teaching my New World of Travel Photography workshop for the second time at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. From June 24th to 29th, we’ll spend five full days exploring the city and surrounding areas of New Mexico while making time for lectures and critiques. I love seeing photographers learn in the workshop format, especially at a place like the Santa Fe Workshops because the learning is intense and inspiration is everywhere.
Last year we ventured down to the historic Plaza to challenge ourselves to capture an iconic place in a new way. We explored Canyon Road and the Farmer’s Market to capture local color. And we even hit the road to capture the landscape and towns nearby which helped to build a fuller picture of the area. Every student came away with a beautiful set of images that captured the unique sense of place in Santa Fe.
Spaces are limited, so be sure to sign up soon if you are interested in exploring this beautiful corner of the Land of Enchantment with me.
It seems there is a photo around every corner in the charming residential neighborhoods near Canyon Road that are filled with adobe homes.

Come join me July 30th through August 4th in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for a 5-day workshop called The New World of Travel Photography.
Santa Fe holds a special place in my heart because in 2004 I spent a year working as a course assistant at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. Week after week, I experienced the wonderful intensity of the workshop environment and saw how it produced rapid improvement in people’s photography…. and occasionally changed lives. I credit my time in Santa Fe with putting me on the path to my now 11-year career with National Geographic as a photo editor and photographer. I’m excited to come full circle and return to the workshops next month as an instructor.
In my workshop, I’ll share insights into how I prepare and execute a travel assignment for National Geographic Travel. Most importantly, I’ll be spending time with each participant throughout the creative process, from shooting to editing, which will culminate in a unique travel story. Days will be a balance of time shooting in the field and classroom time filled with critiques, discussions, and lectures.
