Join mother and daughter duo Lapita and Tyana Arviso for a hands-on creative experience highlighting photographic techniques that encapsulate the beauty of the desert landscape. Together we will welcome the full moon and learn to honor her beauty through photography.
Workshop participants will spend two evenings in the fields at Moon Horse Ranch learning to photograph the moon at sunset, moonrise, and in darkness. All backgrounds, cameras, and equipment are welcome; please reach out to Lapita and Tyana if you have any questions on specific camera and equipment needs. This workshop is limited to twelve. Two full scholarships for creatives looking to expand their skills are available; to apply for a scholarship please click here.
Because no one can control the movements of the sky, we ask that workshop participants come in a spirit of humility, willing to be present and learn whatever the weather. In case of clouds covering the moon we will shift our focus to photographing the flora and fauna of the landscape and the sky above us. Our hope in offering a two day workshop is that at least one, and hopefully two evenings will be spent photographing the moon in all her glory.

TRAVEL AND LODGING
Workshop participants are responsible for their own travel to and lodging in Santa Fe. For those traveling from out of town, the nearest airports are in Santa Fe, 20 minutes away, and Albuquerque, which is an hour drive away. Lodging wise, we recommend the El Rey Court, who has offered all registered workshop participants 15% off up to a four night stay. The exact location of the workshop will be sent to registered participants the week of arrival. Moon Horse Ranch is 30 minutes south of downtown Santa Fe, between the villages of Galisteo and Cerillos.
Due to the nature of these workshops and how much long term planning and preparation goes into each one, refunds cannot be given. Exchanging a workshop ticket for a future workshop at Moon Horse Ranch may be possible and will be considered on a case by case basis.
THE AGE OF CORONA
During the workshop we will be observing the current New Mexico Covid guidelines. At present masks are optional. The workshop will be entirely outside in the open air under the western sky.
