This workshop will be about finding your own unique vision of the airy southern Mexican city of Oaxaca by using the camera to explore the region in a direct, spontaneous way.  Open to both serious amateurs and professionals alike, from fine art photographers to documentary photographers, from college students to seasoned photographers, it is a workshop that will emphasize the development of your own personal way of seeing photographically.  This workshop will also be about learning how to edit your work intuitively, and will include discussions about how to take your photography to the next level.

The workshop will be taught by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, who have between them have published 18 photography books as well as exhibited widely in museums and galleries throughout the world.  

Note: This is a workshop for photographers who collaborate with the world, not for those who dramatically alter their photographs digitally.
