Mundro Raro (Rare World)
with Keith Carter
Photographing in a foreign country is an exhilarating, and often even life-changing, experience. Keith Carter has spent more than 25 years photographing in and around the lovely Mexican colonial town of San Miguel de Allende and he has found that not a day goes by in this charming pueblito without something to delight the eye, tantalize the senses, or expand the consciousness. San Miguel is the perfect catalyst for creating expressive portraits, landscapes, still lifes, or architectural images. Tuition includes double accommodations for 6 nights (single supplement available for an additional $480), breakfast Monday through Saturday, lunch Monday through Friday, dinner Sunday & Friday, and applicable model/location/materials fees. General Information for Workshops in San Miguel.

with Karen Divine
November 2-7, 2014
Knowing the basics of iPhone compositing, let’s push ourselves further to express imagery that is both personal and transformative. Each day, Karen gives you exercises to enable you to quiet the mind and detach from your thoughts, move you out of your comfort zone, expand your perspectives, and establish a sense of playfulness. you will review work as a group each morning as well as working privately with me on personal projects. You will add Procreate for the iPad (optional but encouraged), and Leonardo for both the iPad and iPhone. Throughout it all, you will strive to develop the courage to ignore our inner critics and follow our own inspired visions. As you explore San Miguel we explore the process of letting go, allowing our creativity to reveal stories to us—all with our iPhones!
