Headshots for a Writer
I met Jackie a good while back at a marketing presentation. As I do with everyone I meet at presentations and networking events I checked out her website and follow up with suggestions of how my photography may help their business. Jackie was in the process of doing an entire website redesign and needed a headshot to go on it, my specialty! She visited the JCP Home Studio and we went through a variety of poses, background colors and even wardrobe changes to find a creative headshot style that worked for her new site. She chose the headshot above to use on her ABOUT THE WRITER page on her new website! Thank you Jackie! Read More
Red Rally 2018 with more fire!
This was my second Red Rally on the UNM campus, which is the burning of the Aggie from rival school NMSU before the football game. It is quite the spectacle because it is not every day one sees something 40 feet go up in flames, and this year there seemed to be a lot more flames for a lot longer! The pyrotechnics team must have learned something since the 2017 Red Rally. Read More
Cinematic and Whimsical Albuquerque Drone Video
Have you ever sat and stared in bemused amazement at the water feature in Civic Plaza in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico? It was designed by Aqua Design International. They contacted me about making a creative drone video of the water feature really showing off the range of fountains and colors they display at dusk. This was my first time to fly my DJI Mavic Pro drone in such low light. After a brief test flight I was very glad to find out it could record video in these conditions and that the final, edited 4K drone video made Aqua Design so happy. The music I selected I think really compliments the visuals. Press play, and take a 3 minute whimsical break! Read More
When was gas 32¢ a gallon?
Driving back to Albuquerque after a weekend of rural land real estate photographer in Angel Fire along the very scenic Route 66, one can find amongst an unbroken stretch of canyon, trees and river a place that very much stands out, the Johnnie Meier Classical Gas Pump Museum. Thanks to Atlas Obscura, a great website for finding strange and odd things, we knew to be on the lookout for it. There are not just old gas pumps, but any number of things from a past that is slowly being forgotten. For me seeing the old coin operated animal rides that I used to take in the 1970s and 1980s, it was a strong shot of nostalgia. Even the old cigarette machine jogged my memory to when you used to see them in every restaurant waiting room. And when was gas only 32¢ cents a gallon last? Read More
New Mexico Summer Sunsets 2018
The rural land photography and drone video work I do takes me all over the state of New Mexico, and I mean all over! Just during the late summer time of August and only half of September, I have been to Angel Fire twice, Taos, Farmington, Belen twice and Socorro. This is a selection of sunset photos I made at those places. If you would like any of these photos as fine art prints to put in your home or office, use the buttons below. Prints are less than you might think. Ask me about getting a 30”x40” canvas in particular! Read More
Coralee is a real estate agent that really cares!
I had the pleasure of working with a new real estate agent, Coralee Quintana, photographing a residential real estate listing for her in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. We met at an Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce ambassador meeting. At the listing she was very helpful getting last minute things in order for me to photograph the exteriors first, and then the interiors. She went above and beyond to insure the best results and really helped out the home owner as well. I did my part looking for creative, as well as the traditional, interior photography angles and composition. Check out the photo below using the bed in the foreground, not the typical bedroom real estate photo! Read More
Suzie visits the JCP Home Studio for Headshots!
It was a long time coming, but Suzie was finally able to visit the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico for a headshot session! We had first talked several months ago, so I was glad when Suzie texted and said do you have any time available this morning?? Luckily I did and got the studio lights setup in a hurry! Like many clients, Suzie was not exactly thrilled at the prospect of having her photo taken, but had to. We tried a couple different lighting setups and backgrounds, before ending up with this seated position on a black background. It is my job to find the right style and look to make my headshot clients feel comfortable during the photo session and be thrilled with the results! This is what a professional headshot photographer is able to do! Thank you Suzie for visiting and being patient until we got just the right headshot for you! Read More
