March 20 - 23, 2017 with fine art photographer Craig Varjabedian Experience the intense beauty of rolling sand dunes and wide skies This workshop will provide an opportunity to visit one of award-winning photographer Craig Varjabedian's absolutely favorite places to photograph—White Sands National Monument. He has returned to these beautiful dunes again and again for many years and it will be the subject of his upcoming book to be published by the University of New Mexico Press in 2017. In this dynamic workshop, you will explore the vivid terrain of White Sands National Monument in southern New Mexico with award winning photographer Craig Varjabedian. You will experience the legendary allure of White Sands, from the rhythm of rolling dunes to the stark beauty of this extraordinary landscape. The harsh dichotomy of earth and sky makes the beauty of New Mexico a unique treasure, and we will discover it in secret hideaways and forgotten vistas. The workshop will begin in Alamogordo, New Mexico as we spend four days at White Sands National Monument creatively exploring these incredible rolling white sands. The unique challenges of this workshop will be in capturing the intense beauty in the southern part of the state, where the high-low contrast makes for a more attenuated beauty than in other regions. The intrepid photographer will be rewarded with indelible images of dream-like scenes and lost eras when a different aesthetic prevailed. You will be photographing this desert environment in an atmosphere of adventure, exploration, and discovery. This is a shooting intensive workshop, with Craig providing hands-on one-on-one guidance in the field. Whether you are pointing your camera at a magnificent sand dune or capturing the dynamic weather that is common here, you'll have many great opportunities to make great photographs. We will be based in Alamogordo, New Mexico for the workshop.
