Things to Consider
Sturdy walking shoes, poncho/rain gear, water bottle, sunscreen, hat, are necessary. The camera as a tool; proficiency with one’s equipment will serve in the enjoyment of NMPS Workshops more fully. During NMPS Workshops we will take time to share our views from the days photography on your laptops. Bring all equipment you require including spare batteries and flash cards for the camera. Supplies are few and far between once we are on location.

A Thought
On a photo tour or workshop the places we visit will bring us close to the landscape, nature, wildlife, and unique architecture of New Mexico and the American Southwest. Please be aware in making the least impact on the places where people live and where nature thrives.
