Albuquerque Headshot Photography with Dr Norm and Barbara for LinkedIn

I met Dr Norm and Barbara at an Albuquerque networking event some months ago, and since then have seen them many times such that we have become rather familiar with each other.  Knowing the person some greatly helps making photos of them.  They each one a free headshot session I had donated to various events.  They wanted their headshots for LinkedIn and their own business website made together, and to reflect their teamwork and closeness in their business relationship, which of course stems from their personal relationship.  In the shot above they have each other's backs!

Fly Under Bixby Bridge in Big Sur 4K Drone Video

For over a decade (or my whole life?) I daydreamed about driving up the Pacific Coast Highway in California going from Santa Monica, turning right where there is no more Road left, then following the Pacific Ocean all the way up to Monterey, stopping at such famous places as the Bixby Bridge.  Recently I got to fulfill that dream and had my DJI Mavic Pro drone with me.  I got bold, and flew it right under the bridge!

Last Sunset of 2017 Lake Tahoe First Sunrise of 2018 Sacramento

Last Sunset of 2017 Lake Tahoe First Sunrise of 2018 Sacramento

Since living in Japan, I have adopted their custom of viewing the first sunrise of the new year, which is often paired with seeing the last sunset.  For 2017, I was able to see one of the more epic views for the sunset, having climbed up to the top of Cave Rock, all of Lake Tahoe was spread out before me.  The sun dipped below dramatic clouds just above the horizon casting golding light on snow capped mountain peaks and reflecting off the lake itself.  It was even more special because of who I was with, my whole family made it to the top of the rock, Jessica (girlfriend), Kiki (beloved puppy), and Artie (Jessica's dog).

Albuquerque Headshot Photography for LinkedIn with Brandon

Albuquerque Headshot Photography for LinkedIn with Brandon

This headshot session at my Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico was dual purpose with Brandon.  He wanted a business headshot for LinkedIn and also another style of headshot for his personal training business.  We started out with the personal trainer style, and my favorite was the one above converted to black and white.  This style of rectangular headshot allows for copy to be put next to the subject, such as what his personal training programs offer, his contact info, etc.

Albuquerque Food Photography - Prosum Roasters

As I approached the address for Prosum Roasters I was not exactly sure if I was at the right spot.  I was expecting a cafe, but it was a kind of warehouse looking building with double industrial doors as the only possible entrance.  Next door was a doggy daycare.  Luckily the doors opened as I approached and I was welcomed by the owner, Cynthia.  All good!

Saxophone Product Photography Albuquerque New Mexico

Saxophone Product Photography Albuquerque New Mexico

A new client here in Albuquerque, New Mexico had a saxophone he needed detailed photos of to help him sell it.  He brought the sax over to my Home Studio for a pre-shoot discussion.  This was very helpful from just knowing how to handle the very complex saxophone as a musical instrument itself and how to rest the sax on its stand (the ring is not obvious to put through the stand opening).
