Faces of the American West: Portraits of the Cowboy & Native American Photo Workshop


The Old West is peopled with legends, but our West is full of vibrant and arresting people who are working and living under a glorious Western sky. New Mexican faces reflect both the intimate beauty and rough grandeur of this incredible land.

In this boutique workshop in Santa Fe you will photograph Native Americans dressed in authentic regalia and working cowboys in dusters and chaps, all chosen to allow participants the opportunity to capture emotionally powerful and artistic photographs. These portrait subjects, photographed in inspiring locations, bring the days of the old west to life.

Located on the historic Santa Fe Trail that bears its name, Santa Fe, New Mexico, home of Eloquent Light, is a 400-year old city filled with history and fascinating cultures. In the old days the trail brought together the Native American, Spanish and Euro-American pioneers who often lived in harmony and sometimes in conflict at this place where new ideas at times collided with ancient beliefs.

In this workshop you will learn lighting and camera techniques along with model direction and composition under the guidance of master photographer Craig Varjabedian. In order to provide premier one-on-one instruction this workshop is limited to six participants.
