I am very active in The Professional Photographers of America (PPA) which, after 140 years, is one of the longest running professional organizations in history. PPA has 30,000 members in 54 countries.
My work can be seen at Weems Galleries in Albuquerque at both their Montgomery and Old Town locations, and at the Range in Bernalillo. These locations sell mostly canvas gallery wraps and infused aluminum prints. Weems is an Albuquerque landmark, and it was voted Albuquerque Journal's favorite art gallery for 2017. For framed prints, check out the wonderful Corrales Bosque Gallery in Corrales. The Corrales Bosque Gallery was voted second in the "favorite art gallery in the Albuquerque area" rankings for 2017 in the Albuquerque Journal's readers' poll. In Santa Fe, my work can be seen at Art Exchange Gallery, next to Hagan Das Ice Cream on the Plaza.
My photo was taken by friend and mentor Tony Corbell. Tony is an inspiration for me, and his photographs include the United Nations General Assembly, an assignment that surely generated considerably more pressure than taking my photograph.
