The Best Photographers in Albuquerque


Image by Zak Coker. INSTAGRAM: @zcokes

I have to admit, I never really looked to Albuquerque photographers for inspiration, I was always to busy looking at photographers outside the state because I felt that sometimes Albuquerque photographers just put a half hearted effort into their work and I just couldn't get into their work. I spent most of my time looking outside the state and looking at people I considered the best and wanted to learn from them. Yet, recently I have been finding some really good photographers that inspire me here and I believe could get paid (if not already) by some of the top companies around the world. So here is my list, and I have to admit, I haven't seen every photographer in Albuquerque, but these are ones I have come across recently and really love their work.

Zac Coker is someone I never heard of before and just casually came across him by scrolling through Instagram early in the morning. His work is classic, elegant, and simply beautiful. I dig his work because it has a very Calvin Klein meets street feel. You can tell he has put a lot of effort into studying photography and his editing style is wonderful. Simple, is key here because his composition is spot on and he doesn't really have to get flashy with effects, edits, or wardrobe. Zac should be a top choice is you are looking to hire someone for fashion. In my opinion, one of the best here, if not they best in fashion. Whatever he does, he has it right and will no doubt be a name in this city.

Knate Myers is hands down one of the best landscape photographers in Albuquerque and this isn't the first time you have heard his name either. Knate has been published all over the world, had many viral timelapse videos, and has brought a lot of much deserved attention to Albuquerque photography. His work is vibrant, colorful, and timeless. You would think being a great photographer was enough for Knate, but he also is a stellar timelapse photographer as well. Either category you want to put him in, Knate does an incredible job at whatever he does with his camera.

Erik is one of the most successful fashion photographers to come out of Albuquerque and for a reason. His work is high fashion, classic, beautiful, and ready for editorial print. From color to black and white, Erik nails it every time and for all you aspiring fashion photographers in Albuquerque, this is the guy you should try to model after. His work is great and he has become recognized across the world because his work never fails to deliver.

This concludes my list for now. There are more great photographers in Albuquerque, but these are my favorite at the moment. If I were to give a representation of Albuquerque photographers to people around the world, I would send these guys. Its hard living being a photographer, but photographers like this inspire you to keep pushing, that great photography exists in Albuquerque, and to never give up on your camera. So stop staring at my article and go out and shoot.
