Building on a 30-year legacy of providing immersive photographic and writing experiences, we are excited to introduce our latest series of online workshops. To offer you continued connection with our world-class instructors, we have created SFW Online. These streaming classes are where you engage with The Workshops when you can't visit us in Santa Fe. We are excited to include these four exceptional instructors and their classes, offered in May and June.
Internationally recognized photographer, Susan Burnstine, will be teaching a new workshop called Final Portfolio: Completing a Photographic Project. As photographers, we have all started projects which now languish in our archives. Now is the perfect time to unearth one of these beginnings and push it through to a final body of work. In this workshop, Susan gives each participant the skills to create an intentional and dynamic portfolio. Limited to 10 photographers, this workshop will provide participants with the tools necessary to create a well-conceived portfolio over a four-week period. Portfolio Development will begin on Monday, May 4.
Award-winning novelist and Santa Fe Workshops instructor, Pam Houston, will be teaching an online writing workshop called The Particular Beauty of our Pared Down Lives. In this live collaborative experience, Pam will help participants explore how capturing the essence of the every day can be distilled into captivating vignettes, stories, and personal essays. This workshop is limited to 14 writers who form a community of learners, exploring the role their craft plays in their daily lives at home. The Particular Beauty of our Pared Down Lives begins on Tuesday, June 2.
Longtime Santa Fe Workshops instructor, Jennifer Spelman, is guiding a group of photographers through The Cuba Project. For years, Jennifer has led signature photographic experiences in Cuba. In a supportive environment of photographers who are passionate about Cuba, now is the perfect time to re-open these images and bring them to life by creating a compelling visual story. Two sessions of The Cuba Project will be available and will be limited to 10 participants each. The first begins Wednesday, May 6. The second begins on Monday, June 8.
Completing our lineup is Jason Langer, who will be teaching a workshop on Exploring the Secrets of the Night. Night photography is synonymous with mystery and the unconscious. Whether we are using the ambient light of streetlamps, moonlight, or we are introducing a light source into the scene using strobes or flashlights, photographing at night reveals a new world — one not visible during the day. Exploring the Secrets of the Night is a six-week collaborative online experience with fine-art photographer Jason Langer which will combine technical discussions and demonstrations with image presentations and digital darkroom tips. Limited to 12 participants, Exploring the Secrets of the Night begins Wednesday, May 6.
