Watch: David Muench Shares His Landscape Photography Portfolio of New Mexico’s Organ Mountains

New Mexico’s Organ Mountains are being considered for National Monument status and legendary landscape photographer David Muench has photographed there many times.

The Organ Mountains is an arid and dry desert region with sand dunes, abundant flora and fauna, and wildlife. The area is also rich in scenic beauty and pre-American, New Mexican, and American history. From the Apollo Space Mission, Billy the Kid’s Outlaw Rock, the Butterfield Stagecoach Trail, Geronimo’s Cave, some World War II aerial targets, and thousands of Native American Petroglyph’s and Pictographs are scattered around this mountain region.

David first photographed the region in the 1960’s and in this video, he tells the story behind his images, vividly recalling the fine details and wonderful experience shooting here over the last 40 years.

The ProFolio of British Photographer James Carnegie

It’s Monday morning and I find myself back in the office drying out my cameras, flashes and SD cards after one of the hardest assignments I’ve yet shot: an overnight mountain marathon in the Cumbrian Lake District, notorious as being the wettest place in the UK (and that says something) and beyond what I had imagined when I set off on the 600 mile trip North.

Having already reached new-found levels of frustration earlier that evening, 2am on Sunday morning and I find myself trudging up-hill through knee-high snow drift, in driving rain and gale force wind to reach the furthermost checkpoint of the race. On arrival I find the marshals asleep in the small tent and the temperature rapidly dropping, so I quickly set-up tripod and shoot a few long-exposures using myself and head-torch as a subject. The conditions are serious enough to convince me that hanging around for a shot of a competitor is a bad choice. I’ve made plenty of those over the years but it’s the ability to learn from them that has driven me forward in this precarious career as an outdoor & sporting photographer.

Eiko Jones Beautiful & Unique Underwater Photography

Editor’s Note- Recently I saw a +1 post about a beautiful image appearing on National Geographic’s website which led me to Canadian underwater photographer Eiko Jones. He has an amazing approach to underwater photography so I asked him if he would tell us about himself and his photography.

Please tell us how you got started and how long you have been in the business.

I started  my journey into UW photography first in 1993 for a couple years. Then in 2011 I went on two diving expeditions in Mexico. First to Isla Guadalupe to see Great White Sharks and then to the Socorros Islands to be with Giant Manta Rays and many species of Sharks. This was the catalyst that really got me back into UW photography.

The ProFolio of Alaskan Photographer Joseph Classen

My love of the natural world began literally before I can remember. My parents have many pictures of me as a smiling, rambunctious toddler trying my best to explore the wild frontier of the back yard, or a local park. My admiration and attraction to the great outdoors grew just as fast as I did, perhaps even faster. The love-affair I had with all of creation as a child has remained a life long passion, and my greatest source of peace, comfort and inspiration.

Nature and wildlife photography actually began as an off-shoot of my other favorite outdoor activities: fishing, hiking, hunting and camping. About ten years ago I began to notice more and more that during my time in the wild I was constantly saying to myself, “Darn! I wish I had a camera! Look at that!!!”  And so, even though I knew essentially nothing about photography, I bought a decent camera and had it with me at all times while on my many outings.
