Santa Fe, NM—Santa Fe Photographic Workshops is offering a photography package in honor of its 25 years of passion for photography and world-class instruction. The 25th anniversary hotel package includes a two-day intensive workshop featuring the inspiring light and landscape of Santa Fe and a two-night stay at the iconic Inn and Spa at Loretto. The package starts at $711 plus tax, and is available through August 31, 2014.
In addition, Santa Fe Workshops is running a water-themed photography contest with a percentage of contest proceeds donated in support of water projects in communities around the world.
Santa Fe Photographic Workshops has been enriching lives with world-renowned instruction in Santa Fe, a city with a unique culture and architecture, gorgeous natural landscapes and the enchanted natural light of the Southwest. The workshop’s two-day intensives run on Saturdays and Sundays to help participants incorporate their passion for photography into their busy schedule. Workshops are offered at all levels—from beginner through professional—with course topics that include Using Your Digital Camera, Experimental Digital Printmaking and Basics of Portraiture, as well as courses on digitally enhancing images, social media photography and cooking and food photography.
“The experience offered by Santa Fe Photographic Workshops is part education and part creative vacation in culturally rich Santa Fe,” said Reid Callanan, founder and director of Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. “We are delighted for our students to stay at the Loretto, a photographic destination in and of itself.”
Modeled after the Taos Pueblo, a national historic landmark, the Inn and Spa at Loretto is a luxury hotel located at the end of the Santa Fe Trail and adjacent to the historic Loretto Chapel. Tuition for a two-day intensive workshop begins at $520. Lodging starts at $191, not including taxes and service fees.
