Skiing in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Ski weekends aren’t easy anymore. Once they were simple escapes to the snow where you could shell out a little money for a lift ticket, sleep on floors, and eat Power Bars on the chairlift. But as we get older, they become full-on mini vacations. A ski destination now has to have good places to eat. And breweries. And maybe even a spa for a post-ski massage. Those places exist, but they’re also full of vacation-like prices, with $130-a-day lift tickets that earn you the right to wait in 10-15...

The Best Work I Saw at the Medium Festival of Photography: Part 1

  My kids are 6 and 11. Right in that sweet spot where all the older people you meet say, “Cherish this time. It goes by so quickly.” Seriously. I’ve heard that a lot. My wife and I are trying to appreciate it, but as my son told me the other day, (with respect to the natural beauty that surrounds him in Taos,) it’s hard not to take it for granted. One thing I’ve discovered, one trick to make it last, is to try to make more memories. To do it on purpose. As a photographer, I’ll be honest, I don’...
