New Work: The Streets of Guanajuato is a collection of images from the cities, pueblos and historically rich cultural landscapes of Mexico’s Guanajuato District.

Streets of Guanajuato: 2016 Image Collection

The State of Guanajuato is famous for its artistic legacy, a long history of silver mining and perhaps most importantly the birthplace of Mexico’s Independence.

Please take a moment to view this collection of recent images which I made while exploring the vibrant communities in and around San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato.

While the collection does include just a few iPhone images, such as the photograph of a family soaking at the thermal springs, the lions share of these images were made using the now classic Fuji x100s mirrorless camera.

For those of you who know this camera, you understand what a wonderfully versatile camera it is — in case you are not familiar with the Fuji line up, please check out the newest Fuji x100F. Sporting a fast (F2) fixed 23mm lens (35mm equivalent) this digital camera is a powerhouse!

I published a camera review last year on my experience as a Fuji x100s aficionado in the field — click on the link to give it a read.

Chaco Culture National Historic Park is home to one of the richest concentrations of pueblos in the American Southwest. Pueblo Bonito, the centerpiece of this vast archeological site, is considered one of the most iconic landmarks of the American Southwest, and a rigorous climb up the narrow canyon trail rewards you with panoramic views of the New Mexico high desert.

Join documentary photographer Jeremy Wade Shockley, who has been photographing the American West for more than a decade, for a photographic expedition to Chaco Canyon. Jeremy shares his in-depth knowledge of Chaco and guides you in using natural light and creating striking compositions to truly capture the essence of this Unesco World Heritage Site.

We spend the first three days of this five-day workshop camping in the stunning beauty of remote Chaco Canyon. Each day is filled with desert hikes and careful exploration of the many pueblos located inside the park, seeking to portray the essence of Chaco through our photographs. Professional outfitters provide our basic camping gear and meals during our time in the field.

For our final two days, we return to Santa Fe and The Workshop’s state-of-the-art digital lab, where we review and organize your new images using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Selecting your best photographs, we create masterful final prints showcasing our Chaco Canyon experience.

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind workshop celebrating the archeological legacy of Northern New Mexico, where shadow and light play across Ancestral Puebloan architecture.

Heading out east next week…sleeping in my own bed tonight. Feels good to be home. Santa Fe last week, and Flagstaff, Arizona before that. Those great western roads stretch out before me.

The momentum feels good. Summer has finally arrived. I don’t want to miss it though! The rivers and streams filled to their banks, the forests – green and fertile.

Shooting, writing, bringing new ideas and direction to the table every day…looking ahead. Rachel has taken the plunge to work from home, freelance writing, teaching and ultimately helping me further the photographic life for us. We are on this epic journey together…the open road lies ahead! Our passports close at hand.

Next week is the infamous Look3 Festival of the Photograph. Inspiration. Fuel. It’s my first time out to Charlottesville and I am full of anticipation, camera ready.

I belive that hard work, an open mind and kindness can lead us to our goals in this life…a life well lived. The unexpected around each corner. Our dreams realized.

Dream big I say!

Abrazos, Jeremy
