About My Photography

My Photography Workshops and Tours allow me to share my experience and knowledge in photography with those interested in both learning more about photography and working in this exciting medium.  The Workshops range from basic through advanced photography, and cover all aspects of digital imaging including image visualization, working with the camera, metering and proper exposure, using Photoshop in the computer, and printing.  All workshops utilize lectures, discussions, field trips, and demonstrations assuring full understanding by the participants.  The Tours go to extremely photogenic places where we learn much of what is presented in the workshops and learn to apply it in real and exciting locations.  The focus of each workshop and tour is to immerse ourselves in photography, learn from each other, and have fun doing it.

The workshops are located in Corrales, New Mexico, a small village with a rural atmosphere, and are kept small where more attention can be devoted to the needs of each participant.  New Mexico is a marvelous and unique place to do photography.  Its history dates back to the earliest Indian settlements, through the coming of the Spanish in 1540.  There are landscapes, animals, ruins, old churches, Old Town Albuquerque, ranches both old and new, pueblos

Elliot’s work includes landscapes, documentaries, portraits, and contemporary studies.  Subjects of primary interest are dramatic travel sites, the old west and historical sites, and equestrian activities.  His work has been in many juried art shows and one-man exhibitions with several awards for his photography.  In his commercial work, many color digital images have appeared on magazine covers and in magazine articles.

Representative Noteworthy Litigation and Transactions

The following are few of both noteworthy and the more typical types of cases that are handled by our Environmental Practice Group.

  • Successfully arguing that the EPA model consent decree language for dispute resolution applied to a decision made by EPA to change the scope of the remediation to be performed, notwithstanding EPA’s argument that such constituted “pre-enforcement review.” United States v. Knote.
  • Representation of a Fortune 100 Company in toxic tort litigation in California stemming from the alleged operation of a United States government war-era manufacturing facility. The case involves claims that seepage of toxic materials from the site led to ground water and soil contamination in the surrounding areas, which allegedly caused cancer and other personal injuries and property damage to surrounding inhabitants.
  • Successfully arguing that use of a drum reconditioner did not constitute arranging for disposal such as to create Superfund liability. United States v. Cello-Foil.
