6 Day Photo Workshop

July 25 - 30, 2024

$3,900 USD


Join us for Festival Guelaguetza Experience 2024 photography workshop with accomplished Mexican street photographer David Coleman. David was born and raised in Mexico and is an expert with the Mexican people, customs, language, and world renowned Oaxacan culinary cuisine. This photography workshop also includes visual storytelling instruction and image review sessions.


The Guelaguetza festival showcases the finest samples of Mexican folklore. We will be visiting local pueblos with regional dances and music that has survived since the pre-Hispanic era, and the festival annually gathers huge audiences excited to see the ancient cultural heritage. 


Residents of Oaxaca City dress in traditional costumes and showcase their folklore dances and songs as well as delicious food. One of the main attractions of the festival is the parade that starts in the Plaza de Santo Domingo. People of all ages participate in the procession wearing flamboyant costumes,  masks, and wigs. Some of these costumes are passed from generation to generation to preserve local customs and beliefs.
