Meet Randy!


Randy is a rarity in Santa Fe...a native New Mexican.  Born and reared in Albuquerque, I met him in The Camera Shop across from the historic La Fonda Hotel on San Francisco Street.  I just got a new Canon Rebel camera and was having some difficulties with some of the new, unfamiliar settings.  Within a few minutes Randy had solved the problem with skill, expertise  and graciousness.  He spends half of his time in Santa Fe and the other half in Albuquerque, working and attending school where he is majoring in Interior Design and Photography.  Because of his personal characteristics.  I predict success for this native New Mexican!!

PS.  This is NOT our Randy on CDP!

  1. It is nice to know there are at least two nice Randy's in Santa Fe!

    And this is a very nice portrait. And I'm glad you got your camera all figured out.

    If this portrait is any indication, I'll predict success for you, too.

    Camera shop? Those are way too rare these days! Lucky you!

  2. Excellent portrait shot Kate, what a charming face this young man has. I must admit when I read the title I did think it might be 'our' Randy!! Looks like you're coming to grips with your new camera pretty fast!

  3. What a lovely shot kate and how wonderful to have such a helpful person to assist. Hope that everything works out well with your new camera but it looks like you are on the right track! With a New Year ahead I hope that you continue to enjoy getting lots of marvellous pics. Best wishes, Rae

  5. Nice looking fellow! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I love the Art Institute of Chicago too. In fact, I spent a couple of days wandering around in there and a small fortune in their gift shop!

  6. Mmmmm... I think when taking pictures with a new camera, one should always use an INSPIRING subject! Well done! (Hint: After taking picture, you shake your head and frown and say, "I don't think that came out just right, could you sit a bit CLOSER?" *wink*)

  7. Marcheline has a good approach to camera handling. I'll have to practice that.

    I'm envious of this novel concept of "camera shop." I know I'm in a somewhat rural area, but I think a lot of them disappeared with film cameras. Too bad. Glad you found one with such nice tech support!

    Glad he was able to help you figure out your new camera.

  9. Randy the camera shop guy is a handsome, cheerful looking fellow! Maybe he should start an Albuquerque daily photo blog or Santa Fe CDP non?

    Great Kate - please take a look at my Brazilian friend's new CDP blog:

  11. I really like it when the people who work in a camera shop can help you out with ease. Congrats on the camera. I use a Rebel, but a much earlier version, so I think you will be very happy with yours.

  12. Well, he is certainly a good looking young man, isn't he? I would frequent his shop if I were you!
