December 4 - 7, 2014

Hone your skills in the warm shade of Arizona's Santa Catalina Mountains during a unique photo retreat at the acclaimed Miraval Resort and Spa. On daily excursions, photograph stunning mountain vistas, and the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert. During a private evening performance, capture the unique shapes of a Navajo hoop dancer or the sweeping motions of a Folklorico dancer. Then enjoy the fabulous spa facilities; invigorating outdoor activities; and fresh, healthy cuisine at Miraval Resort & Spa.

This workshop is led by a National Geographic photographer and a professional instructor and is designed for amateurs who are interested in improving their digital photography. All participants must bring a digital SLR camera, a laptop computer, and software for organizing and presenting images. This workshop is limited to 25 participants.

We have a planned itinerary ; however, our schedule is flexible to allow for spontaneous photographic opportunities. Download more information.

When you put your camera down, the explorations you’ll engage in at Miraval are not just of the outdoor sort. At this acclaimed destination spa and retreat, the desert landscape is typically the spark that ignites an inner voyage. Visitors come here to rejuvenate, and they do it in myriad ways, from hiking in the Sonoran Desert to horseback riding, and dining on sustainable and healthy cuisine. There are also fabulous spa resources and an unrivaled team of well-being specialists to help you recharge your body and mind.

Note: This workshop includes a $150 credit per person per stay to be used toward spa services or other optional program activities.
