About THe ARTIST

Alma Ortega lives and works in Taos, New Mexico where she was born, her family roots go back several hundred years there. She strives to honor her ancestors by creating a traditional lifestyle for herself and her daughter while stopping every chance she gets to capture sacred moments in an image. She is tremendously inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds her, and the light that is so unique to Taos. She shoots with both digital and film cameras, depending on the subject matter, with emphasis on patience in waiting for the right composition and timing to click the shutter. Source light photography is about feeling the connection with the source of light, and sharing that connection with all who encounter her work.  Alma has exhibited her work in the award winning Living Light Gallery by Lenny Foster, a Taos living master and mentor. She now shows her work at Taos Studio Works, located at 110 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, suite C, Taos NM 87571.  Her images are fine art quality archival pigment prints, available in very limited editions.
