Our current photo workshop offerings in New Mexico include workshops for specifically for landscape, nature, travel, portrait, and lifestyle photographers with various skill sets and seeking to grow as an image creator.

Weather and Light for Outdoor Photography

In this two-day intensive workshop at Santa Fe Workshops, Michael DeYoung shares his vast knowledge of meteorology and demonstrates the crucial role it plays in understanding, finding, and exploiting the best light. With his assistance, we explore ways to harness optimal lighting for our outdoor subjects or, when necessary, how to match those subjects to existing weather conditions. -

Spring Workshop: Mountains, Canyons, & Adobe – Spring Landscapes of Northern New Mexico

This is an instructional based landscape photography workshop designed to take you beyond the mechanics of camera operation in a landscape that has drawn artists for centuries.

Our primary “classroom” is the varied and beautiful mountain and desert landscapes surrounding Taos with its authentic and colorful old world architecture. The clean, dry, high altitude air creates the legendary enchanted light often found here. We go beyond camera operation and technique. We will advance your understanding and mastery of natural light and strengthen your composition and design skills.
