Welcome to Los Alamos Photography
First of all if you’re reading this, I want to sincerely thank you for taking the time to visit our brand new website. Our goal with the blog is to post weekly, each week being a message from a different member of the group. As the owner and operator of this site, I want to take a few minutes to explain my vision for the site and share a quick story of its creation.
This website is something I’d thought a lot about long before presenting it to the other members. I kept noticing how often the Keep It Local - Los Alamos page on Facebook received virtually the same post. It was always someone asking other members to weigh in on who they think is the best photographer in Los Alamos. As our about page states, there is absolutely nothing wrong with people asking this question. The problem lies in answering the question.
The “best” photographer to one, or many, may not correlate to who others believe is the best. Don’t get me wrong, it is an amazing compliment to be mentioned in one of these threads, but they often spiral out of control with exactly the same comments as the last time.
One day Tara Key started a group conversation via Facebook with all the photographers she could think of who were the usual suspects in these threads. Her goal was to get together and really get to know each other. I thought this invitation was amazing, not only for the purpose she saw, but to pitch the idea for this website. Most of the photographers thought it was a much-needed, albeit atypical idea in this field.
I truly hope you appreciate the concept and are able to utilize it to its full potential the next time you are looking for someone to capture your important moments. If you believe you have an idea that could improve this site or even if you just want to chat about camera gear, don’t hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for your time,
