Introducing our Focus Series—part workshop, part festival, part seminar. You select one workshop to focus on, with the added benefit of all-community activities throughout the week.
The series leads off with our LANDSCAPE workshops. Autumn in Northern New Mexico is a magical time of year. The land is awash with color, the air brisk, and the light gently envelops all it touches.

Norman Mauskopf—documentary photographer, portraitist and long-time instructor at The Workshops—leads The Art of Portraiture: Simple to Complex, an extended-learning opportunity with an emphasis on working in close proximity to your subjects to create insightful and intimate portraits. This 8-session workshop, geared to our local photographers, promises the intensity and learning curve of our classic workshop experience spread over two months.
In group discussions, Norman concentrates on issues central to successful portraiture, including eye contact with the camera and a subject’s relationship to the environment. Weekly assignments build one upon the other, progressing from simple to complex portrait sessions.
Classroom sessions are held Tuesday evenings at The Workshops, 6:30 to 9:30pm, starting October 9. Two field sessions and a final celebration dinner are included in the program.
