General Information

White Sands-Blum.jpg
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 work hard to bring to any workshop I teach.

This is your opportunity to work one-on-one with award-winning fine art photographer Craig Varjabedian 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 as 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.
