Welcome To Our Photo Workshop!

FEBRUARY 3-10 2018, PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP IN SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE, MEXICO

Full-Week Workshop With Accommodations – $2,950 USD

If You Don’t Need Accommodations In Our Villa –  $2,150 USD

Non-Participating Spouse With Accommodations – $1,150 USD

The workshops have two full time instructors, James Wilson and Mark Hemmings, and the workshop enrollment is limited to usually 12 participants. This allows each student to have quality time with the instructors, and our small groups feel more dynamic as we get to know each other. We also enjoy eating meals at restaurants together as a group.

Please watch our workshop film to get a better idea of what we do:
