Historic Taos New Mexico has a storied past that is represented in its many old adobe structures and
street scenes. The town of Taos was established in 1615 and sits just a few miles away from the 1000
year old Taos Pueblo. The pueblo itself is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1899 Taos was
established as an art colony with the Taos Society of Artist forming in 1915. These artists all came to
Taos for a reason…the light is spectacular. As photographers you will be able to capture some of the
Southwest’s most beautiful and breathtaking landscapes and manmade structures. The Rio Grande
Gorge Bridge spans the river gorge at over 650 feet above the water. The San Francisco de Asis church
has been painted and photographed by such notables as artist Georgia O’Keefe, and photographers
Ansel Adams and Paul Strand. Hollywood has taken advantage of the Taos area too with such films as:
- Easy Rider
- Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
- Wild Hogs
- No Country for Old Men
- Terminator Salvation
- Off the Grid
When contacting the studio about setting up a tour of the Taos area, let me know what you’re hoping to
see and photograph. We can put together a custom drive of the area that will try to put you in the right
place at the right time. There is so much to see and experience in Taos, so come with the expectation of
adding some new prints to wall space at home.

Steven Bundy Photography Tours has been providing photography “safaris” and camera and image
instruction in Northern New Mexico since 2008. Hundreds of happy customers have returned home with
great memories and stunning photos to share with friends and family. I try to provide very casual and
easy going photo tours of my beautiful New Mexico along with enough camera and image education
along the way to provide the participants the tools and scenes to head back home with some beautiful
images they would want to put on their walls.
|# In Group||Full Day||Half Day|
Full day tours are roughly 8+ hours long depending upon the time of year. I try to end each full day tour around sunset to hopefully finish the day with a bang. A lunch for the entire group at a restaurant along our route is included in the full day pricing. I also bring water and snacks.
Half day tours are 4-5 hours long. We can start either in the morning or afternoon depending upon your preference. Most of my prior tours have ended at sunset because of the nicer afternoon light in this area. No lunch is included in this option. I do bring water and snacks.
I will offer camera help and image composition suggestions to those that request it throughout the day, so do not be shy about asking. My tours are focused on introducing you to the beauty of Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado….places off of the beaten track. My intent is that you have a fun day of discovery as we explore my favorite part of the world.
I require a deposit of $50 per person per day. Multiple days will be a multiple of the $50 deposit fee.
