Congresswoman Cake Cutter
You never know who may attend an Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting event, and I certainly did not know that Congresswoman Deb Haaland would be in attendance, and put to work cutting the cake no less! There was also live music and of course lots of turquoise jewelry to browse. If you want to have fun while networking and growing your business, I recommend becoming a member of the Hispano Chamber today! And support local Native American artists by getting your turquoise jewelry from Turquoise Skies. Read More
Do not play with ceremonial scissors either!
Photographing ribbon cutting events in Albuquerque, New Mexico is usually pretty fun and exciting, and the one for Rusty Taco in the Coronado Mall was no exception. The cold temperatures outside did nothing to slow down the staff of AHCC getting everyone ready to celebrate this ribbon cutting event late on a Friday evening. You have to be careful with those ceremonial scissors though!! Read More
Rio Rancho doglife just got better!
I have been taking my dog, Kiki, to dog parks across the country for all her 9.5 year life. Having a good dog park is a key feature of any place I choose to live. Therefore, the opening of more dog parks is always welcome, and especially ones in urban areas. Such a dog park opened right in the middle of the Cottonwood Mall parking lot in Rio Rancho, New Mexico! Before the ribbon cutting event hosted by the ABQ West Chamber of Commerce I had a hard time imagining how a dog park could be in a mall. Whoever the designers were deserve great praise for making a fantastic dog park, with obstacles, shade and easy access to water for both dog and human alike! I have never seen such a large gathering of dogs with all dogs getting along so well either! We live far from this dog park, so will not be regulars, but when on the west side I look forward to visiting again! Read More
I learned a lot at this ribbon cutting event in Albuquerque, New Mexico for Kangen Water. I was surprised that according to their acidity metrics, tap water is better for you than the two most popular bottled water makers! The Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce were very good hosts once again. If I lived closer to Kangen, I would be a member of their store where you can bring in your own water jugs and get them refilled. There is also a counter top machine for sale to purify the water right in your own home, but for me, it is just a little out of budget at the moment! Read More
If you are having a grand opening ribbon cutting event at a donut shop, it is wise to have it at 9am in the morning, which the new Donut Mart location on San Mateo Blvd in Albuquerque, New Mexico did! Thus, there was a huge turnout. I was there with my Nikon D750 representing the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce, which hosted the event. Read More
I photograph a lot of ribbon cutting, grand opening events in Albuquerque, New Mexico. However, the one at ClearLink Skin & Medical for Dr. Rachell Davis was one of the best! From the energy and atmosphere, to the actually healthy food on hand to the generous door prizes given out, this was an outstanding grand opening ribbon cutting event! This was organized by the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce whom I have recently become a member of! Read More
Photographing another grand opening ribbon cutting event for The Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce at the new Triumph Motorcycle on the west side of Albuquerque made me want to get on a motorcycle and feel that particular sense of Freedom one gets with a vehicle with just one headlight! Photographing ribbon cutting events is one of my favorite things to do in my professional photography work as everyone involved is exciting and I get to meet a new local business. Read More
