We’ve recently received several notices about summer and fall workshops, so I thought I’d pass them along. This list is not even trying to be exhaustive, so I’ll try to keep adding new workshops as I hear about them.

UPDATE: Santa Fe Workshops
A top workshop that brings in top photographers, such as this year’s Chris Rainier, Sean Kernan, and Jay Maisel. The Summer/Fall schedule includes 48 workshops, many with an emphasis on digital imaging, in beautiful locales around the world, including Santa Fe, Italy, Japan, Ireland, Thailand, and Mexico.

Toscana Photographic Workshop
Workshops set not only in Italy’s most beautiful regions, but also in gorgeous buildings, like the Benedictine monastary from The English Patient. Heavy hitting teachers include Stanley Greene, Amy Arbus, David Alan Harvey, and Antonin Kratochvil.

International Expeditions
“Photo journeys” emphasize better photography through understanding of the flora, fauna, and cultures being captured. Respected nature photographers such as Wolfgang Kaehler, Rosanne Pennella, and Kevin Schafer will help students uncover the native beauty of Tanzania, Brazil, Greenland, and the Amazon.

Vision Quest
Photographer Doug Beasley’s worshops to places like Hawaii, Ireland, and the American West focus on creativity over technical skill and bill themselves as “photographic journeys for personal and spiritual growth.”

Mentor Series
Of course, I’d be remiss if i didn’t mention our own Photo Treks, which are traveling to Mexico next as well Provence, Norway, and Antarctica…just to name a few.
