Los Poblanos Inn & Organic Farm

This is the type of work that made me know what I wanted to do.  Arrive at a beautiful farm/inn with a loose shot list and start putting a story together. I was working in evening light, and thanks to my 1.4s was able to shoot until almost dark. Thanks also to the gracious hosts, including owner Matt Rembe and chef Jonathon Perno. These and many more images will be in consideration for an upcoming piece in Edible Santa Fe.

Taos Inn and Doc Martin's

I got commissioned to head up to Taos to shoot the Taos Inn and their famous Doc Martin's Restaurant. The photos will appear in an upcoming Edible Santa Fe. It was a great trip and I was able to bring the family along. We stayed at the inn, which was walking distance from the awesome Twirl toy store. Chef Zippy White and Wine Steward Craig Dunn are photographed here. Craig is much more than a bar manager, and oversees one of the most celebrated wine lists in the state. Thanks also to Bob D'Antonio, the Food & Beverage Director -- he's a photographer himself, and helped me with shot ideas and setups.

The Gorge in Taos, NM

This is a great new restaurant, brought to you by the same team of Roessler twins that have made Season's, Zinc and Savoy staples in Albuquerque. These guys know how to appeal to a wide spectrum of diners through quality control and attention to detail with their amazing spaces. Gorge is no exception. The food is simple enough, but not ordinary. It was a great trip up North for me and the family, who got to tag along for this assignment. If you find yourself in Taos and have kids, check out what I consider New Mexico's #1 toy store: Twirl

Dineen Clan

This was one of the funner shoots I've had in a good while. Three generations were on hand for a sunday afternoon near the mountains. The light was nice and I had my 24mm 2.8 and 50mm 1.4 for the job. Thanks to this lively bunch for making it a great time and making it easy to get some fantastic images...
