Landscapes by Jim Harmer

One thing photographers have in common is the desire to progress as artists. For some it might be technical skills, others the creative, more artistic side. And for many of us, it is both sides that we want to grow in. Fortunately some photographers that are further along that pathway are more then happy to share and teach others. Jim Harmer is one of those photographers. He’s got an amazing eye, brilliant technical skills and loves sharing his knowledge. You may have heard of Jim through his online site, Improve Photography or from his podcast or social media.

Aztec Dancer

An Aztec Dancer, in full ceremonial costume, is absolutely awe-inspiring. Photographing one of these figures is an unforgettable experience.

The dance that could not be suppressed
The Spanish conquistadors attempted to destroy as much pre-hispanic culture as they could but, try as they might, they could not suppress the powerful Aztec Mitote dance. The dance, dubbed the Conchero dance by the Spanish, has strong ties with military conflict. Aztec princes and lords, dressed in their finery, would perform the dance to relate stories of great battles past. The stories continue to this day, passed down from generation to generation. This lineage system has protected the dance’s sacred heritage and cultural significance.

Based near Puerto Vallarta, a major outpost of the former Aztec Empire. We have established strong ties with the local Conchero community. It is these ties which enabled us to develop an unforgettable photographic and cultural experience. Our Aztec 1-on-1 Workshop.
