Thirteen Photos from H&M San Antonio Launch

H&M is a Swedish, hip multinational company that makes really cool clothes at affordable prices. Last night, a ton of people camped out on hard concrete to have their first look at the new store at The Shops at La Cantera. Die hard fans for sure. Thanks to @torijohson, I was able to get a sneak peek into the excitement. Here are thirteen photos from the grand opening day of @HMUSA’s San Antonio store.

Thirteen Photos from San Francisco – Engagement Edition

I’ve found one of the great ways to love @HolaDeya is to make a list. I ask her about adventures she wants to have in her life, specific ones and I make a list. My memory is bad, but @evernote does an awesome job at it. With the help of Deya’s sister, Viole, and my @SamsungCameraUS photographer friends @mrcippy, @themrscippy, @techdadreview & @mdflores (in spirit), we gave Deya a memorable marriage proposal. Below are thirteen photos from our adventure together leading up to the proposal at Battery Spencer.

Thirteen Photos from Marfa, TX

Nan Palmero shares thirteen photos from Marfa, Texas. These pictures are photographed with the Samsung NX30 Smart Camera.

Marfa – such a peculiar place. A dusty little Texas town, backdrop for great movies including “There Will Be Blood,” “No Country for Old Men,” and “Giant.” Deya and I took a weekend trip out there to try some delicious food, experience quirky art and spot oddly dress people that I SWORE were members of Arcade Fire. Here are thirteen photos from Marfa, where everything is art – even a dog walking around in a bar…maybe.

Thirteen Photos from Honduras

Mike Sharrow, Josh Salmons and Nan Palmero traveled to Honduras on a mission trip to IMC and visited Orphanage Emmanuel. Photos were taken with the Samsung NX300 Smart Camera.

In March 2014, @mikesharrow, @salemonz and I traveled to Honduras on a mission trip. We worked with Moises Chino Murillo and his church, IMC to help them develop new leaders in their church. We shared creative communication strategies in presentation, shared with them a framework in growing young leaders and I gave the sermon, in EspaƱol on Sunday. It was an incredible journey of growth for all of us, in a dangerous and wonderful place. Here are thirteen photos from the adventure.

Nan Making a Wood Fire in a Brick Oven

A brick oven is a magical device where no matter what you cook in it, your food tastes 10,258,647x more delicious than any other heating element can provide. Once our bellies were full of delicious pizzas, we strolled around downtown Corpus Christi in nooks and crannies to find parts we hadn’t ever seen.

Nan Palmero | Samsung Camera USA Imagelogger of the Year 2013

January was an interesting month of travel. I was honored and amazed to be chosen by Samsung and Getty Images as the National Imagelogger of the Year 2013 for the United States. The Samsung Imagelogger program shares Samsung cameras, lenses and gear for photographers from amateurs to pros to photograph the world any way they see fit. Imagelogger of the Year for each participating country was sent to Spain for the award ceremony with Samsung and Getty Images executives. We ate delicious food, saw gorgeous sites, took a Jeep Safari and most importantly, connected with other wonderful people from around the world. It was a humbling and fun experience. Here are my thirteen shots from the adventure. My photos were shot with the Samsung Galaxy NX camera.
