Additional Info for this travel photography workshop in Mexico
This is our PREMIUM 10 Day photographic workshop!
This workshop will take place at the end of October, when the major Mexican parades are held.
For the fourth year in a row, a Day of the Dead Parade will be held in Mexico City in which monumental skulls, floats and catrinas will be touring Paseo de la Reforma. Also, hundreds dress as elegant skeletons for Mexico City’s annual Catrinas Parade. Both of them are the best opportunities to capture breathtaking images in Mexico, by far.
The inspiration for the Day of the Dead Parade appeared on the big screen when scenes were filmed in the historic center of the Mexican capital for the film Specter, from the James Bond saga. The parade will be integrated by various mobile offerings which in turn will be divided into sections that are yet to be defined.
This is a new way of celebrating the colorful tradition of Day of the Dead in Mexico City, which with this fourth edition is expected to become one of the most important events of its kind in Latin America. The parade will involve more than 800 volunteers, floats, dancers, alebrijes and giant puppets.
In between days we will visit Coyoacán, Xochimilco, Teotihuacán and Tepoztlán.
In Teotihuacán we will be guided by an incredibly knowledgeable guide who will give you information on just about anything! He knows art, architecture, history, ancient and recent culture. Teotihuacán is a wonderful place where you will have incredible photographic opportunities every step of the way.
At Xochimico, we will explore the famous canals of Xochimilco with an expert local guide who can bring you to areas that aren’t visited by other travelers. You’ll float through the waters on a traditional ‘Trajinera’ boat and and visit ancient floating gardens known as Chinampas.
Tepoztlán town is crowned by the imposing Tepozteco hill, considered by many as an important source of cosmic energy. We will walk along its charming cobblestone streets, stop by its quirky boutiques, and get lost in the aisles of its traditional market.
Also, photographer Omer Salom will encourage the participants photograph the streets of Coyoacán.
