"Seeing, in the finest and broadest sense, means using your senses, your intellect, and your emotions. It means encountering your subject matter with your whole being. It means looking beyond the labels of things and discovering the remarkable world around you."

A Natural Eye: Big Sur
May31-June 3
Led by Eddie Soloway

Eddie Soloway takes his popular “Natural Eye” workshop on the road! Big Sur, south of Carmel, California, is a region of rugged natural beauty well known to the likes of Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and generations of nature and photography lovers, a place where mountain streams cascade through redwood groves on their way to wild beaches and glorious sunset light. Eddie weaves together some of the elements of his Santa Fe–based workshop, including activities designed to open up a natural eye and fine-tuning technical ideas that help you capture what you see on film or pixels. Indoor and outdoor sessions include ample time to photograph the beautiful surroundings.

For further details, visit the Web site. To register for this workshop, call the Santa Fe Workshops at (505) 983-1400.

Western Ireland: A Photographic and Cultural Workshop in County Mayo and the Donegal Peninsula
July 27-August 6
Led by John Weiss

Western Ireland is a land of remarkable light, rugged natural beauty, and warm people eager to share their rich heritage of music, folklore, literature, and history.  Days are spent photographing in one or two spots – uniquely special places you could never find on your own. This year, we’ve added a number of exciting excursions to our workshop. We hope to visit the Ballinrobe Horserace; photographing the Pilgrimage at Croagh Patrick, and two days on the Donegal Peninsula. We might also spend an entire day “shooting and shopping” in nearby Westport, Ireland’s only planned city and a visual delight. Join us on this special excursion to Western Ireland and the Donegal Peninsula.
