Unusual, eroded rock formation in the Egg Garden section of the Bisti Wilderness


I have been photographing northern New Mexico for more than thirty years. in that time I have been to some amazing and other–worldly locations. Now you can take advantage
of the knowledge I have gained over that time. I can show you some of the best photography destinations in the southwest, from the Jemez Mountains to the Bisti Badlands. Call me at 575-829-3804 or e-mail me today to schedule a trip to one of these fascinating locations.



One of the most popular of the San Juan Basin Badlands.
Not as well known as the Bisti, but still a remarkable place.
A new wilderness area with plenty to see

In and around Jemez Springs and San Ysidro.

“I strongly recommend the Bisti Wilderness Tour led by Jim Caffrey. Jim is very professional. He knows the areas very well and without his help I could never have found the things I wanted to see. Before going to the Bisti I conducted extensive research. Some people suggested staying along the main wash so I would not get lost. But doing so you might just wander around and never find the Egg Garden, the Brown Hoodos or the Stone Wings. I did not worry about getting lost while hiking with Jim. In addition, Jim is a photographer and he knows when the landscape has the best light and which perspective is the best.”
