The core of the weeklong event is geared toward professional and experienced amateur photographers with photography workshops, seminars, symposiums, portfolio reviews and exhibits.
The photo festival also seeks to foster the next generation of photographers by offering classes and photo safaris geared toward amateur and intermediate photographers. The public is invited to view and enjoy the many outdoor photography exhibits in and around Telluride and Mountain Village. Additionally, the final presentation and closing party will be open to everyone for free (priority seating for pass holders). The photo festival has something for every level of aptitude and appreciation. The photography festival is timed just right for photographers to capture the changing fall light and the aspens turning gold and blaze orange.
The Photography Festival is teaming up with the AhHaa School for the Arts. The AhHaa School is a community center of learning and culture and a Telluride icon for nearly two decades. AhHaa will help promote the Festival and host a number of Festival events as well as the opening reception and gallery shows at the School's historic Depot building.
There is just no better place for a Photo Festival than Telluride. Tucked in a high mountain valley, Telluride is a dream playground for the adventurer and the photographer. Majestic peaks surround the town, once home to silver and gold prospectors.
