The charming colonial town of San Miguel de Allende is consistently recognized as one of the world’s great cities. This year, Travel + Leisurereaders named it #1—the world's best city! In 2016, they named it #3 on the list of the world’s best cities and, in 2014, Conde Nast Traveler readers named San Miguel the #1 travel destination in the world.
Located in the historic, central highlands of Mexico, San Miguel offers a gracious and safe environment for exploring the culture of this vibrant town while pursuing your creativity and personal style in workshops with Laurie Klein, Keith Carter, Jennifer Spelman, Tony Bonanno, Elizabeth Opalenik, Reid Callanan, Sam Abell, Arthur Meyerson, Marcela Taboada, and Michael Amici.
Since 2001, La Posada de la Aldea, an enchanting hotel complex just blocks from San Miguel's historic central plaza, has been home base, with our administration and operations offices, three classrooms, a restaurant, and comfortable accommodations for our travelers. La Aldea's extensive grounds—featuring gardens, fountains, a swimming pool, and secluded courtyards—provide a stimulating setting for your photographic discoveries.
Enrollment for most of our September/October workshops in San Miguel is capped at 12 participants. These smaller numbers allow you more one-on-one time with our gifted instructors. In addition, we are offering advanced-level Master Classes, with enrollment capped at 10 participants in workshops with Keith Carter, Sam Abell, and Arthur Meyerson.
