"I remember an important learning experience I had was when I was in physical therapy after a leg injury. I had a coach, who worked with me every day. He explained simply and clearly what the process would be like. He buoyed me up when I wasn't in the mood to be there and he helped me measure my progress. My coach encouraged me to reach just beyond my ability to keep me challenged (yet safe). This is an ideal teacher to me, and these characteristics are what I would expect in a workshop leader.

This is your opportunity to work one-on-one with an award-winning fine art photographer to continue your personal adventure with photography. Private Photography Workshops are custom planned, going where you want to go at the time of year you wish to be there and including class/studio sessions if needed. Spring in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Autumn along the Rio Grande, Winter at Ghost Ranch or Summer along the High Road in northern New Mexico - this is your chance to explore, engage with landscape and location, and photograph with Craig Varjabedian. As both peer and mentor, Craig will help you become the photographer you want to be, making the images of places you've loved or, until now, only dreamed of.
Previous Private Photography Workshops in New Mexico have included: White Sands National Monument, Abiquiu - Georgia O'Keeffe country, Taos, Santa Fe, White Sands, Bandelier National Monument, Fort Union, old Spanish missions and churches and much more. Private Workshops are also available in Yosemite, the California Coast (Carmel, Point Lobos & Monterey area), Grand Teton National Park, Glacier National Park and the Antelope Slot Canyons.
"I've had the good fortune to work with Craig Varjabedian in three private workshops over the past 18 months. Each of those workshops has been a fun, productive and (at times) intense learning experience for me. Craig is a dedicated, experienced, generous and highly engaging teacher. He genuinely wants his students to learn and get full value from their investment of time and money in his workshops.
He and his business partner, Cindy Lane, are on top of every detail so that no time is wasted. Before planning each of the private workshops, I consulted with Craig and Cindy about my priorities, expectations and objectives. One of my strong photographic interests is environmental portraiture and on a recent trip to Santa Fe, Craig and Cindy arranged four very full days of shooting in multiple locations with more than a dozen subjects (plus various horses and dogs) in several superb locations. Their contacts in New Mexico are extensive and I had the opportunity to photograph real people engaged in saddle-making, silversmithing, horse training, roping and other ranch activities. Craig coached me on technique, posing our subjects, composition and lighting. In some instances we shot side-by-side. In other cases, I was on my own but with Craig always available for consultation and feedback. I was delighted with the images I made and, more importantly, with the new skills I learned.
If you have a serous interest in improving as a photographer, a private workshop with Craig and Eloquent Light is a worthwhile investment."
