Enchanted New Mexico!!   The land of beautiful light and ancient history.   Join Marti and Will Austin in beautiful Santa Fe, as we, once again,  visit such locations as the Santa Fe Plaza (the heart of Santa Fe filled with artists, music and the colorful architecture of New Mexico), the Palace of the Governors (the oldest continually used building in the USA),  Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi, and the Loretto Chapel.  Santa Fe is the second oldest city in the USA, with St. Augustine, FL coming in first.
Will is a Seattle based photographer specializing in editorial, architectural, location and travel photography.   Marti is very pleased to have Will join her on our second  workshop together in Santa Fe.  
In addition to Santa Fe, as time and weather conditions allow, we may venture outside the area to visit such places as the town of Madrid, the Ghost town of Golden,   Taos with the Taos Pueblo (continuously inhabited for over 1000 years), Rancho de Taos and Rio Grande Gorge Bridge overlook, Ghost Ranch and the areas just outside the ranch made famous by the paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe to mention a few possibilities depending on weather.  Georgia O'Keeffe is one of Marti's favorite artists and she looks forward to showing you the areas where O'Keeffe painted and the magnificent light that attracted her to New Mexico.
The general schedule for this workshop consists of some early morning shooting sessions to capture the magic light at sunrise, morning shoots in and around the Santa Fe Plaza, classroom presentations and image critique sessions, digital darkroom techniques for post processing your images,  lab time where Marti will be present to assist you with selection of your images for critique and help with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, afternoon/evening and, perhaps, a night shooting session(s).
This workshop offers opportunities for all genres of photography from traditional landscape to people and macro.  Presentations in the classroom will cover these areas of photography.
This workshop is limited to 12 participants to allow for maximum individual instruction for participants.

Here are some testimonials from last year's New Mexico workshop:
"The perfect combination.  New Mexico, a photographer's dream and Marti and her assistant for the workshop, Will Austin.  Put together with a small group of fun photographers and you couldn't ask for anything better.  Everyday is exciting and fun and full of learning experiences and inspiration with Marti and Will being in the field only a step away to offer answers to a question or advice on composition and camera settings.  Then get to the classroom and they are so knowledgeable and helpful.  This is my second workshop with Marti and certainly won't be my  last  ...  I highly recommend any workshop she does.  She is a first class teacher."  Micky, New Mexico and the Spirit of Georgia O'Keefe, 2011
"What an amazing experience in beautiful, enchanting New Mexico.  Some time has passed since the workshop and I am still processing all of the things that I learned.  However, the area where I made the most progress had nothing to do with f-stops or layers.  It had to do with how to interpret the world around me as an artist through the lens.  With Marti and Will's teaching, and the support of all the other participants, I was able to create images I never thought possible.  Thank you again for an amazing workshop, and thank you to the spirit of Georgia O'Keeffe, which continues to inspire."   Mary Rose, New Mexico and the Spirit of Georgia O'Keefe, 2011
"Photography is a life long learning experience.  There are so many ways to improve, so much equipment and technology to review, and infinite ways to approach an image capture.  Marti Jeffers and Will Austin offer fresh vision, "pearl" tips (which I will keep in my photo editing arsenal), reviews, amazing locations, and most of all inspiration for the photographer's quest.  Any level of photographer will benefit from a Marti Jeffers Photography workshop and the experience Marti creates.  I can't wait to share my captures from the field."   Tina, New Mexico and the Spirit of Georgia O'Keefe, 2011
"Fabulous workshop in an amazing and beautiful place.  Marti and Will could not have been more helpful, inspiring and encouraging to each of us.  They are both great teachers.  Their enthusiasm for photography is infectious.  Well done!"   Blake, New Mexico and the Spirit of Georgia O'Keefe, 2011
