“Tony was enthusiastic, with a great sense of humor. He was very clear and practical in his presentations.” Bob Wendt, past participant, Tony Bonanno workshop
Ready for a different kind of photographic adventure? Some of Northern New Mexico's most breathtaking and dynamic landscapes are along the Chama River, which winds its way through Abiquiú country, a favorite area for artists and photographers including Georgia O’Keeffe, Ansel Adams, Laura Gilpin, and Elliott Porter.
Explore your creativity while expanding your visual and technical skills as you learn about the natural and cultural landscape of this area during a three-day, 33-mile river trip. We begin in Chama and finish near Abiquiú. Our guides from New Mexico River Adventures provide all the necessary equipment, including setting up camp and preparing our meals. Each night's camp is located right on the river's edge, which presents excellent opportunities for hiking as well as exploring hot springs, homesteads, ancient Indian ruins, and dinosaur tracks.
Our final two days together take place in The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab, where we process and print our images. Tony reviews, discusses, and guides your image processing workflow, placing special emphasis on color management and archival digital printing using both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom. Participants enhance their understanding of the photographic process from capture to output. From spending long days in the field capturing the dramatic beauty of your surroundings to seeing your work come to life in print, you savor an invigorating and well-rounded photographic experience.
