The goal of this legendary workshop—rarely offered and always sold out—is to help serious photographers, both professional and amateurs, jump-start the process of taking your work to the next level. It is designed to motivate you to identify obstacles, clarify your work, and take the steps necessary to revitalize you career and photographic life.
Working with renowned photographer and teacher Sam Abell, participants edit their existing portfolios and generate new work. In addition to an intensive daily program of editing and photographic assignments, our schedule includes in-depth, one-on-one and group portfolio sessions with Sam, and field trips to photographers' studios, galleries, publishing houses, and photo bookstores. Throughout the workshop, each individual seeks to answer two essential questions: "What is a well-lived photographic life?” and “How do I achieve it?" The durable result of this immersion in photography is a leaner, finer approach to working, editing, and carrying projects and careers forward to the next level.
Growth is essential to both a well-made career and a well-lived life. Are you ready to take the next photographic step, personally and professionally? Participants in this workshop should have enough of an established path in photography that, through their work and words, they can share with one another the road they have traveled so far, their dreams, and their future destinations.
A Week with the Masters
Join us in Santa Fe at the end of March for a special “Week with the Masters,” a unique week of photographic learning, inspiration, and collaboration with four contemporary masters of photography.
Sam Abell, Arthur Meyerson, Greg Gorman, and R. Mac Holbert are all great friends and collaborate together on photographic projects and often teach together, but never all four in one week—until now! This week in Santa Fe is one not to be missed.
Each master photographer is leading their own individual workshop, but they also join forces at various times throughout the week to offer their knowledge, wisdom, experiences, insights, and stories for all the workshop participants to enjoy. They share a recent body of photographs during a special evening image presentation, take part in a moderated roundtable discussion about where photography is headed, and join their classes together at times for demonstrations, lectures and socializing.
Enjoy the benefits of a workshop with a master photographer as well as the chance to participate in a week fueled by the collective power and collaborative nature of Sam, Arthur, Greg, and Mac.
