Georgia O’Keeffe Country, Chaco Canyon, Tent Rocks and More
October 10-14, 2012
There’s a reason New Mexico is called! The locations of northern New Mexico include some of the most stunningly colorful land formations of the American Southwest.
This photographic adventure includes the painted desert locations made famous in the works of Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986), an American artist whose extensive portfolio included countless paintings inspired by the landscape of northern New Mexico. These works made O’Keeffe a key figure in American art, and made northern New Mexico a source of inspiration for other artists and photographers.
Harry will guide you to these breath-taking locations, coaching you on technique and composition, and helping you get the most out of every shot. Prepare to fill your portfolio with one-of-a-kind photos you’ll treasure for a lifetime!
You’ll have opportunities to shoot magnificent 600 million year old Mesozoic rock formations surrounding the Rio Chama basin, including the iconic Chimney Rock, and multicolored vistas during a sunset shoot from the storied Matrimonial Mesa overlooking Pack’s Peak and Kitchen Mesa .
You also visit Chaco Canyon National Park with the most sweeping collection of ancient ruins north of Mexico. And the Bisti Badlands await, with its array of mysterious hoodoos. Time permitting, we’ll also stop to shoot architectural features of Sante Fe’s most iconic church structures if you are traveling via Albuquerque airport.
