Customized individual photography workshops and creative assistance can cost much less in real terms than hiring out projects or attending standard digital classes and workshops. We combine it all. Learn while doing while interacting with your personal creative assitant and instructor! You choose the projects, topics to be covered & set the pace. No waiting for others to catch up, or sitting through useless material to get what you need. The last competitor Adobe Photoshop Intensive Workshop we heard of had 40 participants to one instructor! We value personalized experiences, and your learning and understanding of the material is our goal—not selling you more workshops, or cramming more people in the room! We work personally one-to-one with you, with our UNDIVIDED ATTENTION focused on exactly what interests you.
• No need to rent a car
We can come to you locally, or visit our workshops Learning Lounge location in the heart of historic downtown Santa Fe, walking distance to shops, restaurants, and a variety of Hotels, Bed & Breakfast, and Casita accomodations to suit your style and budget. Shuttle services available from ABQ airport to downtown hotels.
• How much is your time worth?
With customized individual assistance, Photoshop & Lightroom classes training or workshops, instruction is directed at your pace (never too fast or too slow) and using your own materials. As a result topics and lessons can be more effectively learned- more efficiently- while getting the job done— therefore saving you time and money! We find most students can learn all the material covered in a 5 day large group workshop course in 2 full days of individual one-to-one training and fast learners can get it in one!

Smaller Class Size: More Instructor Attention:
How often do (or did) you find yourself zoning out during a lecture when the topics moved to something too rudimentary to keep your attention? Or, what happened when things moved a bit too fast for you to keep up? In either case, you probably found yourself in a situation where you were no longer learning. Most Workshop institutions and classroom learning environments pack too many people into the classroom with teaching assistants that may or may not be knowlegeable enough to be helpful to all students. As a result, the majority of the time spent in a classroom becomes frustrating and a waste of time, money and energy. See the Workshop Experience for more details.
At the Santa Fe Digital Darkroom Photography Workshops, we limit our Santa Fe workshop class size to a MAXIMUM of 5 students, to provide our students and clients with the MAXIMUM instructor attention. We take pride in your educational experience, and value your satisfaction.
