Join renowned travel photographer Nevada Wier in San Miguel de Allende, a vibrant colonial town over 400 years old and one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. The streets are rich with colors, aromas, and sounds, and the endless drama of Mexican life is evident around every corner.

Photographing on the move in foreign countries requires the combination of technical expertise, culture competence, intuitive awareness, curiosity and a dash of panache. In this five-day workshop you tackle the challenges of photographing with creative intent while exploring San Miguel.

With a lively blend of lectures, discussions, and outdoor assignments, Nevada discusses how to combine the technical, practical, and creative aspects of travel photography in order to create images that go beyond the usual travel clichés. We discuss ways to approach and photograph people, working in all lighting and environment condition, and using natural light as well as fill-flash. The week includes group and individual critiques, personal assignments, and great fun in the field.

Historic San Miguel provides a treasure trove of photographic possibilities and we also take a day trip to picturesque Guanajuato to visit the market in Atotonilco and a colonial hacienda. Throughout our week together the emphasis is on elevating your creative vision and expanding your photographic technique, all while remaining fleet-footed and agile.

Creativity with Light


If you've ever traveled to an exotic location or dream about exploring one, this seminar will give you tools to capture the true adventures you experience more skillfully. National Geographic photographers Nevada Wier and Michael Clark will share strategies and techniques to help you become a more versatile photographer when you travel to new surroundings. Learn how to capture the essence of new cultures and people, take great action shots, and work with any type of light. With insights from the pros, you'll come away with a creative approach that brings more emotional impact to your images and enriches your journeys.

Topics

  • Photographing People in Foreign Cultures
    People can bring your adventures to life and sometimes best capture that once-in-a-lifetime quality of your journey. But approaching someone you don't know may feel intimidating, especially in a foreign culture. Learn how to make it happen with confidence and convey more emotional depth by adding that authentic human element.
  • Avoiding Travel Photgraphy Clinics
    Learn how to make any experience or location your own with shots that use an unexpected point of view, fresh angle, or unusual framing. Even iconic landscapes and adventures can seem new and surprising with the right thinking and techniques.
  • The Secret Power of Flash Photography
    Adding artificial lighting to your images can take them to a new level and open up a whole new world of artistic opportunities. Learn the basics of using both small and large flashes to augment available light and inject drama, whether you're inside a cave, a candlelit temple, or under stormy skies.
  • Action Photography
    Set yourself and your camera up to capture the decisive moment in any situation, from riding a wave to following a festival to catching a moonrise. Understanding and anticipating the action that's unfolding is just as important as having your camera ready to shoot. The pros share in detail how they make sure their mind and equipment is set to not miss the shot.
  • The Right Results, Any Time of Day
    Hear tricks and techniques for mastering low-light photography-dawn to dark, indoors and out. See how managing contrast and working with color creates provocative images that stand out from the crowd.

Santa Fe Workshops

February 25 - March 4, 2016

The eastern half of Cuba, know as The Oriente, is often considered Cuba’s most interesting region because of its physical beauty, its cultural diversity, and its historical significance. Surprisingly, it is also the least traveled region of the country by visitors. With its Afro-Cuban origins and its history as the cradle of Cuba’s numerous revolutionary movements, The Oriente offers photographers endless opportunities to discover and experience the unexplored Cuba with their cameras—without the annoyance of constant tour bus invasions.

After five years exploring the western half of Cuba, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops now offers programs to The Oriente, To provide local cultural history and help with gaining all-important access behind the tourist veil, Cuban photographers Carlos Otero and Jorge Gavilondo join us for the entire trip.

Our week-long cultural exchange explores urban life in Cuba’s second largest city, Santiago de Cuba, as well as small-town life in remote Baracoa. As we travel by motor coach through The Oriente, the bucolic countryside beckons and frequent stops allow us to meet and photograph the local campesinos y pescadores (farmers and fishermen).
