The Box (Albuquerque Sports Photographer)

Yesterday a few climbing friends of mine drove down to Socorro to The Box, a climbing area. We spent the day lead and top rope climbing, which to none climbers is a bunch of gibberish, but basically we had safety devices so we weren't climbing tall rocks without precautions. :)

We spent most of the day climbing. I took a few breaks and ventured around the area we were climbing to get in some good shoots from different angels. All that to say it was a great day climbing, despite the heat!

Mandy, she never ceases to amaze me. She'll get mad at me for saying this; but, she seriously can try anything and be instantly good at it!! She's only started climbing this summer and she is already better than I am (granted I'm not very good); but, I have been climbing for almost 2 years now! haha...anyway she's awesome and one of my favorite people to climb with!

Joe, I'd have to say he's pretty ambitious of a climber, and eager to try anything. I expect he's gonna be pretty good quickly, especially at the rate he goes!

Melanie, she is a very good climber and is super nice. It was awesome with one climb I was doing that was a bit of a challenge she gave me beta (or told me how to climb up where I was) and it was cake from there. I do also have to give a thanks to her for draggin up all her gear for us to use, without her we'd just be bouldering.

Wes, he is modest about how good he is but we'll just say he's an awesome climber and makes everything look like it didn't even break a sweat. Note: the point of view I took this shot was from the ground looking up, so yes he is upside down on this was pretty intense.

The sky from the overhang Wes and Melanie were climbing on.

Thanks guys, for a great day climbing! :)

Sound Minds (albuquerque musician photographer)

For the past few weeks I've been working with Sounds Minds, Greg, who plays classical guitar and Suzzanne, who plays the flue. We had some trial and error but I think a secound go-round did the trick, especially not shoot at 3pm in the sizzling sun.

I had the treat of hearing them fiddle around while we were shooting and I must say that it really was a beautiful this duo creates. If you'd like to hear them play they have a recital coming up on Saturday November 7th at 3pm at Keller Hall on the UNM Campus. They will be playing pieces by Piazzolla, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Hoover, and Beaser. And Best of all its FREE!

The lighting was just beautiful at this time of day so I got in a few quick landscape shots while Suzanne and Greg were packing up their instruemnts.

This weekend I went on a quick trip to Angel Fire with a few of my closest girl friends. We got a sweet deal on a place to stay and just spent a lot of time talking and hanging out together...

We ending up playing for awhile besides the lake because they wouldn't let us get a paddle boat due to the fact that it was we just goofed off...hehe :D

Because of the rain the skies were just so beautiful, so of course we spent a good amount of time standing in awe of our creator.

White Sands in the Moon Light

This past weekend my family went to White Sands, and with us being creative with the little time we all have free drove up the the gate at 9pm (they close at 10pm). We found a good dune to climb up and whipped out our discs and a snowboard Josh found at goodwill...As everyone else was briskly walking to the top of the hill to take advantage of our time there I set up my tripod and got in some sweet shots of the moon...

I played with a few settings and well you'll see its a trick on your eye...believe it or not it was pretty dark outside...but the moonlight reflecting off the sand still allowed us to play for awhile...Sadly though our snowboard didn't work, but the discs did...though you get sad everywhere haha.

(yes those little spots are STARS!!!) :D
