Route 66: Capture to Print
with Julien McRoberts
April 24 - April 28, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Take the off ramp into a bygone era of Route 66 in New Mexico, and see how America traveled from 1926 up to the 1960s. Our photographic journey takes us to wonderful old Route 66 trading posts, filling stations, diners, tourist traps, and villages, all along the scenic "Mother Road.”

This insider’s road trip takes us to the intact and off-the-beaten-path locations where you learn about the fascinating history of Route 66 in New Mexico, and capture unique photo opportunities along the way. We begin at the heart of Route 66 in Albuquerque exploring both the new and vintage sites along the famous Central Avenue. For the next two days, we continue our road trip, traveling past the Texas state line to Adrian, the midway point of Route 66. During our road trip, we work to hone our travel photography skills and our personal style. Our schedule includes field demonstrations and individual reviews of work in progress.

We photograph and discover what remains of Route 66, from the quirky curio shops, to the neon lights of Tucumcari, the vintage cars, the ghost towns, and more. On Saturday morning, we return to Santa Fe along the pre-1937 route. The remainder of our time is spent editing, processing, and printing our images in the Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab.

The often-romanticized Route 66 inspires in many of us a nostalgic tug at something buried deep within us. The Mother Road is a unique experience, a feeling, a perception, a taste of sight and sound, and a photo journey not to be missed.
