Santa Fe Workshops | Employment

Since 1990, Santa Fe Workshops has achieved an excellent reputation as a valuable and fun environment for participants and employees alike. We share our passion for photography, offering world-renowned instructors, cutting-edge technology, and dedicated staff. We are committed to excellence, teaching both the technical and creative aspects of photography. We provide a supportive, inspirational community where our participants build confidence in achieving their photographic goals both personally and professionally.

We offer two types of employment:

Permanent opportunities are listed as positions become available.

Seasonal employment opportunities are available twice a year for our Summer and Winter programs.

Seasonal Employment

Our objective when hiring seasonal staff is to select individuals who bring formal education, knowledge of digital capture and output, photographic experience, and resourcefulness, so that it benefits the experience of participants. This is especially true when meeting the needs of instructors. The majority of instructors are working professionals and expect technically and aesthetically proficient staff members. As a staff member, the Workshops is a place to give your knowledge back to those who need it and want it, rather than take-away more for yourself. Each staff member is technically proficient, possesses an imaging aesthetic of their own, and enjoys working with people. Superior customer service is integral to every job description and to participant's and instructor's overall experience.

seasonal Positions

A number of individuals who have worked at the Workshops in previous seasons return periodically or for consecutive seasons, so the number of available positions changes season-to-season. Seasonal positions include:
