I took Chris Rainier's "Land and the Spirit" in Santa Fe in 1999. Chris Rainier is a very unique and wonderful man. His personality is very engaging and he is an excellent teacher, (he holds no secrets and offers it all). It is not a darkroom workshop, it is a philosophy of photography workshop and a shooting and an exploration and a spiritual journey workshop. But he doesn't hesitate to share his darkroom stuff...I picked his brain endlessly and incessantly. It was a blast! Check out his b & w books....mindblowingly stunningly good!
