Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 2019 Coming Soon

Although I enjoy watching the balloons from home, I plan to photograph the fiesta this year. I did capture an award-winning image from near my house in 2017.

“Morning Flight” - an image of the mass ascension has earned two international photography awards:

1st Place - Hot Air Balloons September 2018

3rd Place - Multi-Coloured August 2019

Check back for images from this years fiesta.

Nice Surprise!

Last month I had the opportunity to photograph the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad train. I have long wanted to be there when there was snow and I was fortunate to have picked the right time.

I captured several images I really like and one of them just won 1st Place in an international photography contest for photographs of trains. My winning image is titled “Around the Bend.”

A GREAT HONOR

Pecos National Historical Park has opened an exhibition of my work that includes images from my time as the first-ever Artist-in-Residence for the park.  The title of the exhibit is:  "A Glimpse of Pecos Through the Lens of Stan Ford."  Tentative plans call for the exhibit to continue until the summer of 2019.  If you have a chance, please stop by the park's museum (inside the visitor's center) and check it out.
