I am not familiar with photography tours in Mexico City, but there are various options in San Miguel de Allende (the 2013 Destination of the Year in Conde Nast Traveller).  There are more options here in the winter. For one renowned workshop see: santafeworkshops.com  You should also check out: robertdegast.com (he is a year round resident so likely is more flexible in scheduling). In the winter season Niels Henriksen offers small classes. Contact npnh@rogers.com . There are many more options here but will leave it with these.

Pat! I'm glad you suggested San Miguel de Allende. It is located on the Guanajuato state of Mexico and Guanajuato deserves a visit too. If you have any questions about Guanajuato, I can help too :)

I just got back from Mexico City.  While I'm not sure about doing a photography lesson, you could still visit the Museo Archivo de la Fotografía which is located a block from the Zócalo and across from Museo del Templo Mayor, which is a major tourist site.  The Zocalo is something to see and photograph in itself with the Catedral and just a short walk, maybe a mile east is Palacio de Bellas Artes where you see the famous work of Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, and more.  That is something to photograph as well.  Across the street is Mirador Torre Latino, the one-time tallest building in Latin America.  All that would keep you busy for an entire day.  And where to stay?  If you like fancy, Hilton Mexico City Reforma.  You like cheap, Hotel Metropol or HOTEL MARLOWE, or ANYTHING in that vicinity.  It's totally safe.  I was alone and I did it.  Totally safe.  If you stay in La Condesa or Roma Norte, like get a place off airbnb.com, this area is a short MetroBus ride north.  I'd say, use public transit.  Again, safe and very cheap.  Taxis are the scariest part of this part of Mexico City. Trust.  Make sure you visit Bosque de Chapultepec and all the museums (there's 7, including and ESPECIALLY The National Museum of Anthropology) on Sunday when the entry into everything is FREE!-the zoo, the castle, the museums, the park, etc.  That is another day too.  Again, take the bus. Cheap and safe.

Hi! I was born in Mexico City and even I'm not a professional photographer, I do like to take pictures with my iPhone 4s and share them on Instagram. If you are on Mexico City, you would probably like to go to Coyoacan, there's the famous main plaza and the Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera's blue house, nice pics there. For getting to Coyoacan, take the subway "metro" and head to the South part station called "Universidad or Coyoacan", you'll find it easy to get a taxi there and go to Coyoacan for not more than $50 pesos. 

You should visit the center town too, take the subway again and look for the Reforma station and "Insurgentes", feel free to take pics to the "Ángel de la Independencia", and more national monuments there. 

In the center town, you would also get to the Zocalo, a huge main plaza that is the center of the center town, any place there worths a pic but look up for the Palacio de Bellas Artes. If you want a great picture, go on top of the "Sears plaza" cafe and enjoy the sight. 

For any other questions, do not hesitate on contacting me, I'd love to virtually guide you through my country :)
