Cameras & Equipment
Digital SLR or mirrorless cameras and laptops are required for most workshops, unless otherwise noted in the workshop description. You are expected to have a working knowledge of downloading images from your camera to the laptop, organizing files using your image editing software, and selecting images for critique. The only exceptions are for participants in "Basics of Digital Photography" workshops in Santa Fe.
Nikon Loaner Program: Participants in workshops in Santa Fe are able to use the latest Nikon cameras and lenses during their workshop. All equipment is checked out from The Workshops Store on a 24-hour basis. You must be at least 18 years of age with a driver's license and credit card in your name.
The following indicates the minimum equipment requirements all participants should bring (computer workstations are provided for workshops in the digital lab):
Please Note: We do not recommend bringing a brand new camera that you have not had time to become familiar with using.
At this time, The Workshops is not able to support the use of film cameras in any of our photographic workshops. If you would like to shoot film during your workshop, you will need to take the film home for processing. This will inhibit your full participation in the workshop process.
