Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta & Santa Fé - Workshop w/ Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures - Oct. 6-10, 2019

October 6-10, 2019

Limited to 12 participants with two instructors.

Non-photographing guests welcome (no fee for them)

Based out of Santa Fé, New Mexico

Short Description

Join us for part of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta & Santa Fé area. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is pretty spectacular. Combine that with Santa Fé and surrounding areas, considered by many to be the oldest cultural centers of the Southwest, perhaps even of the whole United States, and you have the makings of a full and diversified workshop. We will also visit one or two of the well-known photo galleries to give you a sense of the history of photography …

Our tag line is "Seek Your Own Vision, and Make Great Photos," and we mean it. Standing cheek by jowel with a gaggle of photographers is not the way to get unique images. Our goal is to help you find your vision and use age-old principles of art to make compelling images that tell your story. We stress aesthetics over techno-speak, and our daily critiques incorporate just that.


Margo and Arnie are world travelers who in their past lives, worked for the best of the best, LIFE, Time, GEO, Geographic, etc. and were hired by Fortune 500 corporations for their unique vision. Their work is in museums and collections world-wide. Let them help you take that next step in your photographic journey.

Workshop Fee

$1,480 with discounts for alumni and members of Nature Photographers Network (make note of same on the application) plus entry into the Fiesta.
