New Mexico True Echo Amphitheater Fine Art Photos

New Mexico True Echo Amphitheater Fine Art Photos

Revisiting the photographs I made at Echo Amphitheater in Abiquiu, New Mexico I found some more that I wanted to edit and offer as fine art prints and commercial license usage for businesses that want to display a unique view of New Mexico natural wonder in their home or office for friends and clients to enjoy as well.  Standing in the base of the curved rock formation that produces the echoes the place is named for, I found the shape of the rock wall to be fascinating and photographed it from multiple angles.  If you have received a business card from me you have already seen my favorite angle of it (check it out here), but I like these for their partial views of the upper edge as well.

Rio Grande Celtic Festival Highland Games 2018 Albuquerque Event Photography

Rio Grande Celtic Festival Highland Games 2018 Albuquerque Event Photography

I took my new Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 G2 lens to the 30th Anniversary Rio Grande Celtic Festival and Highland Games at Balloon Fiesta Park to see what kind of olde worlde action I could photograph.  There was not a tremendous amount of organization, so I did not hear the name of any of these feats of strength you see pictured below.  I will describe them as I saw them.  The first are photos of a square of perhaps hay and stone being tossed up over a high bar like a pole vaulter, but with a pitchfork!  The next I would call throwing a very heavy lollipop as far as you can.  Then the other could be carrying a telephone pole until you find where you want to toss it!  Then there was dancing and music too!  No idea what the dances were called either!  I ate a great Welsh cake, though, with lemon curd on it!

Headshot Photo Session Albuquerque New Mexico with Sue

Headshot Photo Session Albuquerque New Mexico with Sue

You might know Sue of Rapid Supply if you are active at all in the Albuquerque, New Mexico networking scene, and thus recognize her from her headshot photo shoot here at the JCP Home Studio.  She needed updated headshots and came with her dog, Sandia, for a late afternoon headshot session.  I know many people work regular business hours so having my own Home Studio here in Albuquerque allows me to accommodate any client schedule.

4K Drone Video New Mexico True Valencia County Desert Mountains

4K Drone Video New Mexico True Valencia County Desert Mountains

This 4K drone video made in New Mexico features a remote area of desert and mountain in Valencia County, about one hour south of Albuquerque.  I drove my Jeep Renegade Trailhawk down 7 miles of unmaintained dirt road to reach this location for a rural land client.  While waiting for the sun to go down to make the last of the photos I needed to, I flew my DJI Mavic Pro drone over the desert and toward the mountains.  The wind was strong, giving high wind warnings on the drone's remote control, so I dared not go higher nor closer to the mountains.

New Mexico True Grants Sunset Photography

New Mexico True Grants Sunset Photography

I had the chance to go west for a rural land property shoot in Grants, New Mexico this week.  I most often go north or east of Albuquerque.  This was a completely new area for me.  This property was not that far from the city of Grants itself, but it rested high up in the shadows of a black mesa over looking an interstate, train tracks and an airport!  I also usually only shoot very flat land properties, where this one was nearly completely rolling foothills allowing for more creative sunset landscape composition.

Albuquerque New Mexico Headshot Photography with Mariluz

Albuquerque New Mexico Headshot Photography with Mariluz

If you think a headshot photoshoot means you have to wear stuffy clothes, and stand in stuff poses, and have a forced smile, then take a look at these creative and free-spirited headshots with Mariluz!  I did not have to say anything, she did everything!  When you get someone like this in front of your lens, it is a rare treat for a photographer.  The fantastic photos just come out one after the other as they did during our headshot photo shoot here at the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  She even helped with her friend's headshot photo shoot before hers coaching her!

Albuquerque New Mexico Event Photography Ribbon Cutting Donut Mart

If you are having a grand opening ribbon cutting event at a donut shop, it is wise to have it at 9am in the morning, which the new Donut Mart location on San Mateo Blvd in Albuquerque, New Mexico did!  Thus, there was a huge turnout.  I was there with my Nikon D750 representing the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce, which hosted the event.
