Quote of the Month

"A great photograph is a distillation, a reduction of the chaos of our wider experience to a visually satisfying essence where what is excluded is as important as what is included."

— David Ward

Experience San Miguel de Allende!
With a vibrant culture, rich heritage, and colorful fiestas, San Miguel is a National Historic Landmark and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of Mexico's most charming towns, with narrow cobblestone streets that wind through colonial-era buildings. Home to an international community of artists, San Miguel is an ideal refuge to immerse yourself in a photographic journey. San Miguel and the State of Guanajuato remain safe tourist destinations and the exchange rate currently strongly favors the U.S. dollar.
