»Seasonal Staff Arrive

One sure sign that our summer workshop season has begun is the arrival of young and energetic photographers to join our staff. And judging by their portraits below they have lots of energy! Most are fresh out of college or on their way to graduate school in the fall, but for now they will be in Santa Fe for a summer to remember for the rest of their lives.

They have joined our year-round staff to help us run our summer programs. Our 24th summer workshop season has just begun—it’s not too late to make plans to join us in beautiful Santa Fe!

We return to San Miguel de Allende in October! Instructors for the Fall 2013 San Miguel program are: Joe McNally, Arthur Meyerson, Todd H. Williams, Greg Gorman, Amy Toensing, Holly Wilmeth, Jock Sturges, Jennifer Spelman, and Sarah Meghan Lee.

Rich in culture, heritage, holidays, and fiestas, our San Miguel workshops are hosted on a lovely campus a few blocks from el Jardín, the central plaza. The New York Times recently ran a 36 Hours in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico article; we, of course recommend a week-long workshop!
