Interview about Smoke and Spice

In July, Wonderful Machine interviewed me on their blog about the Smoke and Spice cookbook. It’s always an interesting exercise to consider questions – I always find myself surprised at the new perspectives I find answering a question, describing an experience I thought I already knew quite well. Somehow, in the act of answering, new […]

Smoke and Spice

I think every photographer secretly hopes to have a book of their work at some point in their career. Thanks to well known New Mexican cookbook authors Cheryl and Bill Jamison, I had my first opportunity last year, creating all of the recipe, atmospheric and cover images for the 20th Anniversary edition of their James […]

Duke City: A Layover Primer

When I have clients coming into Albuquerque for a project, I like to share a little local flavor during the brief time they usually have before/after a project for a little speed-style exploring.

Bodhai Chinese

The reality of regional editorial work is that the parallel production path of photographers and writers rarely intersect. It’s a strange modus operandi – we are working to tell the same story, but not in concert, and usually not at the same time. So when that opportunity comes along to cover the story together, I […]

Guava Tree Cafe

I remember two things about food in Costa Rica: rice and beans. Gallo pinto. The comida pura vida. The national repast. I’ve never been to the part of Costa Rica that inspires the Costa Rican fare lovingly presented by owners Diego and Mari Barbosa Guava Tree in Albuquerque. Stuffed arepas, passion fruit infusions, bowls of […]

Mi Young’s Farm

There’s something to be said for living in one of the more unusual states of the union. For instance – whenever I call customer service, and speak with someone who actually identifies themselves as being stationed in the states, I get to entertain all sorts of questions about New Mexico. For instance, “yes, it really […]
