This month, the Monitor welcomes six new photography interns to its staff. Jennifer Bartram, Marg-anne Glasser, Joan Hurd, Bernadette Lauritzen, Jim O’Donnell and TK Thompson have all agreed to volunteer their time – and their extensive talents – to help the Monitor continue to cover Los Alamos’ many community events. Others in the community have volunteered their time as well, including Det. Shari Mills of the Los Alamos Police Department.
“It’s fun,” said Thompson, whose photographs of churches, pueblos and other Southwest scenes have been shown at galleries throughout New Mexico and Colorado. “I always do roots and rocks – not people. But I’m having a ball.”
He said taking pictures at local festivals and other venues is a way for him to “give back” to his hometown.

Bartram, owner of a portrait photography business called Viewfinder, said so far, she’s also enjoyed turning her lenses on community businesses and standout residents.
