Featured Photography Workshops in Santa Fe

© Sean Kernan
In this age of digital technology, sometimes it's nice to just sit back and really explore the creative side of photography and more than that, explore ourselves as photographers. Two upcoming workshops on our schedule that address this are described below:

Exploring Creativity

August 6-12
with Sean Kernan

Remember how your first really good picture surprised you? It was almost as though someone else had done it, and it excited you and drew you on. In this workshop we learn to cultivate and deepen our awakeness and awareness through a series of exercises Sean has developed during his many years as a teacher. We use specific exercises to get to the creative moment—not just photography. Sean Kernan has made a serious study of creativity and its processes during nearly 30 years of teaching. His Web site address is

The Art of Seeing
August 6-12
with Jo Whaley

Perception and creativity are the cornerstones of photographic style. It is not the choice of subject that determines a great photograph, but rather how that subject is interpreted and visualized. This workshop focuses on refining a personal vision in order to create images that communicate with emotional resonance to others. The challenge during the week is to explore the nature of creativity itself and discover ways to bring this magic to our photographs. Jo Whaley is a fine-art photographer and has been a dedicated educator for more than 20 years. Her work can be viewed at

Every day, with Raul’s guidance and support, we photograph the amazing events of these beautiful colonial mountain towns, including the Pamplonada (Running of the Bulls) and the solemn entry into the city of the traditional xúchiles, which can be up to 30 feet high and 6 feet wide and are created in shapes such as crosses and other forms in a baroque style. Mornings are devoted to reviews and critiques of images made the previous day, as well as short lectures on how to improve photographic skills.

Calumet Photo Launches Photographer Spotlight
In his 12,000-square-foot Chicago studio, you can find Steve Grubman shooting everything from 5,000-pound elephants to tiny, fluttering hummingbirds. And while Steve doesn’t just limit himself to animals, it’s his flexibility as a shooter that allows him to capture the decisive moment with tough subjects. With flexibility like this, anything is possible — like making a Viper smile. We spent some time with Steve, sharing some of his more memorable and challenging projects. You can enjoy the complete story, along with a gallery of his images, on our website at Steve Grubman has been a Calumet customer for more than 20 years. Throughout this time he has come to rely on us to provide him with his photographic equipment as well as our practical advice to help him on his thrilling journeys — because it’s a jungle out there.
