I am beyond excited to receive 'Honorable Mention' in the Santa Fe Reporter Photo Contest. It means so much to me because the photograph stands for everything I believe in, supporting local entrepreneurs, community members, and shopping local. Also, let us not forget the regionally delicious Chimayo Red Chili local ingredient from Chencho Ochoa of Chencho's Famous Chimayó Chile.
Ten wall-size prints were being auctioned off by the Santa Fe Reporter on February 27, 2020, to benefit their student journalism program, but you can still get 8 x 10 glossy photos from their online merchant shop.
Awarded 'Honorable Mention' - Santa Fe Reporter Photo Contest 2020.
My passion for taking photography started when I was in middle school and was the yearbook photographer. I later began taking classes at the local community college and other schools to learn as much as possible when I was 16. Now, it is a hobby, and I shoot all my photos on an iPhone 11 Pro Max.
