Alumni Spotlight

Cliff Shapiro graduated from the College of Santa Fe, now known as the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, in 2010 with a BFA in Photography. He is a New York native but has recently planted some rivaling roots in Santa Fe. Like the rest of us, the land has enchanted him beyond his expectations and he has been living and working in Santa Fe for the past five years. Working like a true photographer, he has enrolled in classes at the Community College to grasp a better understanding of his newest photographic subject… food.  Not only has he enrolled in culinary classes to broaden his understanding of food but to fine tune his existing skills in the kitchen. He has hopes of someday combining his two passions of food and photography by finding his way into what I imagine would be a fine art/fine dining cookbook.
