Visual Narrative with Susan Burnstine
July 20-25, 2014
As photographers who strive to convey our visions in a true, honest, and consistent manner, we establish an emotional connection to each image we create.For five days, under Susan's practiced tutelage, participants learn how to articulate and refine their vision by delving into symbolism, metaphor, and personal stories. In the process, we examine our own personal narratives, aesthetics, and psychology in image making. Through hands-on demonstrations, creative exercises, group discussions, photographing assignments, and portfolio reviews, we are encouraged and inspired to grow and reach the next level of our artistic achievement. We also discuss such practical topics as long-term project development, portfolio editing, marketing, publishing, and exhibitions.

Join Susan for a rich exploration of the self, as we harness the power of photography to realize individual narratives. Click here to learn more about Susan Burnstine.

Intensive: Infrared Photography
with Nevada Wier and Santa Fe Workshops
August 23-24, 2014

Infrared photography in the digital age is light years ahead of its film counterpart. Two factors have led to this unique niche becoming more accessible: first, the use of digital cameras that have been converted to render infrared light and, second, new digital workflow protocols.

In this two-day intensive, Nevada introduces you to digital infrared photography. Using converted cameras and Adobe software, you will learn the ins and outs of photographing and processing your images. After getting comfortable with the technique, you move into the creative and experimental side of making images with the infrared spectrum.
The neighboring town of Nambé, provide us with a dramatic location for our infrared explorations. By the end of this intensive you are a maven of invisible light and a maker of photographic poetry! In addition you will come away with one print of your favorite image.

To sign up or if you have questions please contact the Santa Fe Workshops at (505) 983-1400 ex 111 or email
