Featured Photography Workshops in Santa Fe
© Susan & Neil Silverman
Successful Travel and Stock Photography
July 16 - July 22
Susan & Neil Silverman

Learn the ins and outs of travel and stock photography, from what sells to model releases, in this informative and fun workshop with Susan and Neil Silverman. You may already have a stockpile of archived images that could be marketable, and the next time you photograph your family vacation or visit a local farmers' market, you might end up with a great stock image.

Through lectures, demonstrations, and taking pictures in the field, we explore photographing people, nature, and travel. Topics covered include understanding your camera and its possibilities, lighting as the backbone of photography, mastering a great "wall hanger," photographing people and places far and near, tools and techniques for dramatizing images, how to build demand for your images, and how to travel light, smart, and sharp.

Expressive Black-and-White Photography, July 16-22 with Don Kirby
Mastering Your Flash, July 16-22 with Julia Dean
Perfecting the Digital Workflow, July 23-29 with Al Satterwhite
Funding Your Photographic Projects , July 23-29 with David H. Wells
Visual Storytelling, July 30-August 5 with Norman Mauskopf
Exploring Creativity, August 6-12 with Sean Kernan

Arnold Newman Passes On at 88 Years Old

Arnold Newman and SFW Director Reid Callanan
Master portrait photographer and workshop teacher Arnold Newman passed on Tuesday, June 6th after a brief illness. We send our condolences to his family. His legacy in the history of photography is firmly etched by his seminal portraits. Our lasting memories of Arnold here in Santa Fe are of a tireless and giving teacher, a great storyteller, and a loyal friend. We are currently enjoying fond memories of our times with Arnold and are saddened we will not see him again. God speed Arnold.

Upcoming Digital Lab Workshops

© Dan Burkholder
Creative Photoshop with John Lund
June 18-24

Thanks to Photoshop, the barriers between imagination and execution have been eliminated, opening up new photographic realities to all of us. This workshop explores the creation of such new images, whether for the commercial worlds of stock, advertising, and editorial illustration or for the worlds of personal expression and fine art. Our emphasis is on seamless photo-realistic compositing, though the techniques can be equally well employed in enhancing existing photographs.

Join John Lund, the author of Adobe Master Class: Photoshop Compositing, for a great week of creativity and exploration.

Digital Decisions: Designing Your Personal Workflow with Dan Burkholder
July 23-29

This workshop addresses the all important subject of digital workflow, but on a more customized level. We'll discard the one-size-fits-all approach to digital imaging as we tailor techniques and approaches that make the most sense for you.

Dan Burkholder was one of the first photographic artists to embrace digital technology in the early 1990s. He is best known for hybridizing the power of digital imaging with the classic sensitivity of tonality and composition that has shaped the medium for 170 years. Dan will also share with participants his recent exploration of High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI).

Photo-Eye's Photographer's Showcase Presents New Work by Jennifer Greenburg
© Jennifer Greenburg
"The Rockabillies" is work from the past six years which examines a unique global subculture and my relationship/place within it. The individuals chosen are part of the Rockabilly scene that has co-opted the looks and values of mid-twentieth century America. The group appears almost blissfully ignorant of both the realities of the time period so adored and of current realities. Few, if any members of the Rockabilly culture would, in actuality, want to live in the unsettled post-war era; however, the imagery and ideals have been taken along with an almost wistful interpretation of the time, and made into something new."
--Jennifer Greenburg.

The Photographer's Showcase is an online juried gallery at Application is open to photographer's worldwide. Read more as to how you can submit work.
