Cameras Don’t Take Pictures
with Reid Callanan
October 19 - October 24, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.


Cameras don’t take pictures, people do. And people don’t create memorable and insightful photographs with cameras; they do so with their imaginations, curiosity, and hearts. Join Workshops director Reid Callanan as he guides you in making the shift from taking pictures to creating images that express how you view the world and feel about your live. Together we use our cameras to discover the outside world and expand our creative eyes.

San Miguel de Allende is the perfect place to embark on a personal adventure of discovery, because it offers a vibrant cultural environment with more than enough magic and spirit to be truly inspirational. In this setting, Reid offers a joyful week of creativity, allowing you to realize and embrace the power of the photographic image. Each day we review and investigate the foundations of strong photographs. Light and moment are essential elements, and we learn to see the many nuances of light so we can capture the elusive and decisive moments that highlight our days. We also explore the graphic building blocks of composition, paying particular attention to foreground/background, framing, layering, and perspective.

Are your photographs filled with personality? Do they address the way you feel about your subject, or merely what it looks like? Join Reid in magical San Miguel de Allende and learn to enhance your technique while producing images imbued with meaning, grace, and clarity.

Includes double accommodations for 6 nights (single supplement available for an additional $480), breakfast Monday through Saturday, lunch Monday through Friday, dinner Sunday & Friday, and applicable model/location/materials fees.   General Information for Workshops in San Miguel
