Joining this year‚s faculty will be one of Nevada‚s premier corporate location photographers, Ira Mark Gostin; well known New Mexico author and historian Fr. Thomas J. Steele, S.J.; Director of the Taylor Museum at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Cathy Wright, and architectural historian and preservationist, Diane E. Williams of Austin, TX.
Our Year 2000 Schedule includes:
THE GRAND TETONS: The Spirit of a Place and its People will be offered the week of June 5 through 11 in Jackson, Wyoming with fine art photographer Craig Varjabedian and Corporate Location Photographer Ira Mark Gostin. This very special workshop is for serious minded photographers, both professional and amateur, who wish to develop their visual styles and improve the way they see. The magical Grand Teton valley will be our studio for the week in our study of the portrait and the landscape.
OF EARTH & TIMBERS MADE: Photographing New Mexico Architecture will be offered the week of June 19 through 25 in New Mexico with fine art photographer Craig Varjabedian and architectural historian Diane E. Williams. Quite literally built from the earth, traditional Native American and Hispanic architecture utilizes mud, rock and wood in simple, eloquent designs defined by economic conditions and cultural traditions. This workshop will examine these buildings and their spiritual and rich heritage with participants learning to create meaningful photographs along the way.
A LAND OF LITTLE RAIN: The Portrait and the Landscape of New Mexico will be offered the week of July 24 through 30 in New Mexico with fine art photographer Craig Varjabedian and Corporate Location Photographer Ira Mark Gostin. This workshop will explore two very different yet complementary styles of photography the environmental portrait and the landscape photograph combining them in a memorable week in the high deserts of New Mexico, connecting the relationship between the individual and the land.
PLACES OF THE SPIRIT: New Mexico Catholic Churches through Photography will be offered the week of August 7 through 13 in New Mexico with fine art photographer Craig Varjabedian, New Mexico historian Fr. Thomas J. Steele, S.J. and museum director Cathy Wright of the Taylor Museum at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
