      "Dia De Los Locos" / Day Of The Crazy San Miguel de Allende, Mexico 5-Day Photography Workshop By David Coleman Photography Channel your inner Matisse and find unbounded opportunity for photographic expression in a region revered for its wild beauty and time-honored cultural traditions. Join accomplished Mexican street photographer David Coleman on this five-day photography experience, which weaves the "Dia De Los Locos" festival in the captivating town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with exploration of the charming adjacent city of Guanajuato. Dia De Los Locos is a wild and woolly festival that is unique to San Miguel. Mingle with the vibrant locals as you witness the flamboyant procession wind through the cobblestone streets of town and dance to the beat of live music. While the costumes and masks of local politicians, actors, cartoon characters, and monsters appear secular, this colorful and complex festival actually has deep religious roots. David will provide one-on-one instruction in the field and help you capture the spirit of revelry, as the participants shimmy, shake, and stamp their feet aboard their truck bed floats, throwing fistfuls of candy at the crowds like Mardi Gras revelers.​After three days in San Miguel de Allende, visit the nearby town of Guanajuato, built in a narrow valley hugged by rugged mountains and named a world heritage site in 1988. Observe the merging of past and present in this time-preserved town as you explore Jardin Union, a fountain and tree-filled plaza that is considered the “heart and soul” of the city. Stroll through the colorful Municipal Market (Mercado Hidalgo), a two-story architectural gem built in 1910 that sells everything from locally-made leather handicrafts and woven baskets to dried chiles, spices, and fruits. You’ll also view the stunning Mummies, or "Momias de Guanajuato", recognized as the largest display of its kind in the Western hemisphere. San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato are as much a feast for the eyes as for the culinary connoisseur. Experience local dishes that are as good or better than any Michelin-star restaurant, from the versatile casuelas - meals baked in earthenware pots and consisting of fresh local ingredients like potatoes, eggs, cheese, and herbs - to an array of pan dulce, the sweet and savory pastries of Mexico. You won’t leave hungry!   David, born and raised in Mexico, is an expert guide who provides a safe and fulfilling photography workshop experience, planning the best sites and times of day for shooting, local fare, and comfortable accommodations in advance. The trip also includes one introductory class and two editing and peer review sessions at the hotel.   Note on limited spaces: Workshops are limited to 6 participants. Small groups allow you to develop closer relationships with fellow travel photographers and also allow David to provide one-on-one photography guidance in the field.   “San Miguel De Allende is a photographer’s paradise. David knows the secret spots to photograph and culinary hotspots that rival the restaurants of Europe. First and formost safety in San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato was never a concern of mine shooting into the late evening hours. I certanly felt safer than walking the streets of San Francisco." - Ed. M., Los Altos Hills, CA ​"Traveling with a small group of like-minded participants, I loved my fun trip to San Miguel de Allende, with camaraderie, local music, and excellent cuisine, while at the same time learning new skills in street photography. David handled all of the details from reserving a centrally-located hotel to finding restaurants that are hidden gems, ones that tourists may never find. Mexico is not only a safe place to visit and photograph, but it is also a beautiful and culturally-rich destination." - Pam Perkins, Redwood City, CA   For more information on this or other awesome workshops: http://www.davidcolemanphotography.com/workshops ​All of the following are included with the workshop fee: Photographic instruction Local transportation within San Miguel De Allende, Mexico 4-Night hotel accommodations (private room) All lunches and 1 dinner (farewell dinner) included Classroom with editing and peer review session Daily 1:1 coaching in the field Items Not Included: Air Fares, Aiport Transfers, and Airport Taxes.
