»Summer in Santa Fe

© Jake Rutherford
© Jake Rutherford

Santa Fe is often ranked a top destination for summer travel, and with good reason. We’ve got long sunny days, bright blue skies, cool starry evenings, and an ancient, artistic city just bursting with energy. There are festivals, art markets, our world-famous opera, and concerts on the Plaza almost every day.

And the Santa Fe Workshops campus is the place to slow down and immerse yourself in your passion for photography. Nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, a workshop with us becomes a retreat as the bustle of daily life falls away. On-campus housing offers you a serene setting that contributes to the camaraderie of your workshop. Group meals provide time for sharing experiences and celebrating community, and the exquisite cuisine of Piñon Catering fuels your creativity.

Join us this summer and treat yourself to the Santa Fe Workshops experience.

We hope to see you soon! »
