The world's most laid back photo workshop is open year-round in Mexico.
San Cristóbal is in the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico's southernmost state. Few places on earth rival the region for pure dramatic beauty. San Cristóbal itself offers myriad wonders for the photographer. For centuries, this has been the place where indigenous traditions meet Spanish colonial culture. Visually the mixture is astounding, with the bright notes of traditional indigenous aesthetic contrasting delightfully with the more staid yet elegant influence of Europe.
Classes run from Saturday to Sunday. We specialize in individuals and smaller class sizes to provide you with the intimacy of personal instruction and supervision. Thus we limit class sizes to no more than 8 students. Courses are held out of doors and feature field trips to suit the needs of each group. Black and white film will be developed for discussion with the teacher and class.
You will have access to the darkroom (black and white only; up to 8" x 10" negs.). Chemicals are free. Film and paper are not and must be brought with you. For your camera, a 35mm with interchangeable lenses affords you the best opportunity to learn. Please feel free to bring previous materials for critique. Keeping a journal is highly recommend. Use it for notes, feelings, Polaroid's and to illustrate and expand on a photographic idea.
