Old West Photo Safari with Award-Winning Photo Journalist Paul Ross

NOT for Photographers only…but if you are it’s even better!


Locals Paul Ross and Angelisa Murray will take you to places unknown and known for a trip back in time to the Old West – through history, geology, and aspects of New Mexico’s “land of enchantment” few ever get to see.

You’ll dine on traditional New Mexican breakfast from New Mexico “Chef of the Year” Carmen Rodriguez and lunch in an authentic Western cowboy saloon. [Breakfast is prepared by “disconnected youth” in the culinary program at the local non-profit Youth Works for at-risk kids.]

Image Wrangler Paul Ross will teach, guide, give tips, and answer all your photography questions – esthetic and technical.

Trail Boss Angelisa Murray will guide you into the history and mystery of New Mexico.

Hurry! Time and Space are limited (12 people only)
