Don Strel has been taking pictures for more than 60 years. His photographs have been published in numerous books, newspapers and magazines. Before becoming a full-time photographer, Don taught art and design at San Francisco State and Northern Illinois University and operated art and adventure programs in Colorado through the Chicago Arts Institute.
He came to Santa Fe to work as the director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of New Mexico. He left the museum to start his own business, Southwest Assignments and to focus more on his own creative work. For the next 20 years, Don did photography and public relations for clients ranging from Ski Santa Fe to the Eight Northern Indian Pueblos.
