MEXICO San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico – The Art of Creative Photography 

San Miguel de Allende is a paradise for photographers.

For over a century it has drawn artists and aesthetes to wander its beautiful cobblestone streets, admire its colonial architecture and delve into its dazzling mix of Mexican culture and history, encased in rich vibrant colours.

Our workshop will bring together a diverse array of subjects in its beautiful, often breathtaking light. 

We will walk this city, experiencing and capturing the city at all hours. From the beauty of the blue hour before dawn to the gorgeous sunsets, and venturing out for some night photography too. 

We will photograph each part of the city when the light is at its very best.

Our workshop will also help you deepen your photographic knowledge and expand your creative skills. 

San Miguel de Allende has a unique mood – mixing history and local culture with an exciting cosmopolitan, modern vibe. In recent years it was voted Travel + Leisure’s Best City in the World as well as being included in Condé Nast Traveller’s top 25 Best Cities in the World. 

It is a safe city and easily accessible from Mexico City, and other local airport hubs – but you will feel worlds away from home as you enjoy this incredible Mexican city and its vibrant food and arts scene. 

Our workshops combine exhilarating creative experiences with a wonderful holiday. 

You will elevate your photography skills and produce a stunning collection of images – as well having a fun holiday, making new friends with people who are passionate about experiencing the world and photographing it, as you are. 

  • Deepen your photographic knowledge with in-depth technical and advanced creative composition sessions 
  • Develop your creative vision
  • Use the stunning location as a part of the creative journey 

Activities/Skills covered

  • How to develop your own personal artistic vision of a location
  • How to see like an artist, and bring emotion into your images
  • Photo walks and shooting locations 
  • I will teach you my methods for exploring a location to find subjects
  • Group image reviews – there will be many reviews together – and you’ll see how you can all go to the same places and yet create completely unique images. Great stuff!
  • Daily photo walks
  • Processing  – we will do lots of processing together of your images, and I will share my techniques and approach to processing like an artist

After this workshop you will feel more confident in your photography skills – both technically and creatively – having immersed yourself in photography for one inspiring, challenging and exciting week.

1-2-1 before the workshop 

Everyone who books onto this workshop will be given an online 1-2-1 so I can plan how I will work with you and help you on the photography journey. 

I will identify where I can help you build knowledge in the areas where you need help – as well as amplifying your natural strengths as a photographer. 

I will also use the photography and skills of the group as the touch point for my teachings to make sure people are getting the skills they need for their journey.
