A letter from co-founders Andrew Sullivan, Elizabeth Watt, and Andrés Carnalla.
Here in this magical city which we find so compellingly beautiful, we hope to have created something unique to the realm of photography workshops with SEEK. Informed by our careers as professional photographers based in NYC, we bring years of experience to SEEK, merging the worlds of photojournalism, documentary photography, studio still life, food, and fine art.
Our full-time presence and beautiful new campus here in San Miguel de Allende afford us the opportunity to build ongoing community around the process of image creation for all skill levels. We offer various workshop formats in addition to the standard week-long model, as well as one-on-one mentoring, allowing for more engagement with our participants to support the ongoing evolution of their work.
In addition to a love for the craft of photography both as an art form and means of creative expression, we have a shared philosophy about the power of photography as a tool in personal evolution. Although beautiful outcomes are always welcome, we believe the PROCESS of photographing, if approached rightly, tremendously heightens the quality of experience and engagement with the world around us, functioning as a means for increased self-awareness and ongoing evolution of ourselves.
By learning how to SEE better, we are more awake and alive and able to bring fresh perspectives to all aspects of our lives. All of our instructors, accomplished in different realms, share and encourage this vision. Our goal is to help you capture your truest seeing.
We look forward to welcoming you into the SEEK community, and sharing this remarkable city with you--the sights, the culture, the cuisine, and, best of all--the people.
