The 2013 women’s photography show INSIGHT will soon be underway. Amy’s images “Offering” (above), “A Dark & Stormy Night” (above), & “Solace” (above right) will all be on display. (Solace and Dark and Stormy are on framed canvas– and wow do they look great!) Those interested in seeing the show can find it at the Fine Arts Building at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds in Albuquerque April 7-27th (11-6pm).
Amy got her Ph.D. in Biology in ’06 but also had training in Fine Art photography and a strong desire to pursue her creative side in a more tangible fashion. When her husband Stefan mentioned starting up a business in photography, an old love was rekindled, and she supported him with vigor and enthusiasm.
This month, Amy is doing a give-away of her most popular image of 2012. Like her page on Facebook for details, and enter to win! (Click here for the contest entry form!) The more you share, the more chances you get to win!
Google Business Photos
As many of you are aware, Stefan and I live and breathe photography. While I may make enough to buy the dog food with my Fine Art, it’s really our commercial and portrait work that pays the bills. A year ago, Stef launched Google Business Photos in New Mexico, taking Google Street View straight into businesses. He was recently interviewed on KRQE 13. Click this link to see the interview!

If you have lived in the Southwest for any length of time, the image in the portrait above probably looks familiar. Of “White Man’s Moccasins” Lee Marmon says â€œI never imagined that the photo would become so iconic, I remember asking him to take his photo, just like I did to others. It represented a place and time and Iâ€™m grateful I had a chance to be there.â€ (For more of this wonderful interview with Lee see this article in the Albuquerque Journal.)
It’s not often you get to meet an icon. Someone who was positioned perfectly in space and time to document a culture in flux. And, someone with the talent to do it well. That’s who eighty-seven year old Lee Marmon is, and that is exactly what his work accomplished.
Through a special arrangement with the Pueblo of Acoma, The Albuquerque Photographers’ Gallery is thrilled to host a showing of Lee’s work entitled Lee Marmon: The Acoma Collection throughout the months of March and April. The images on display are among the last of his personally printed and signed photographs. High quality posters are also available.
As an extra treat, Lee will be at the gallery Saturday March 30th and Saturday April 13th from 1-4pm signing posters and chatting with folks. His photos– historic and unique– are as diverse as the life he has lived. You really should try and catch this show!
Stef’s background is in Computer Science and Studio Art. In 2010, he decided to make a career change, and founded Aperture Photography with his wife, Amy. Stefan’s talents are many, ranging from portraiture to gorgeous commercial and food photography. He was Director of Photography for the first ever Santa Fe Fashion week, and is a Google Certified Photographer providing walk-throughs for New Mexico businesses.
