Do not play with ceremonial scissors either!
Photographing ribbon cutting events in Albuquerque, New Mexico is usually pretty fun and exciting, and the one for Rusty Taco in the Coronado Mall was no exception. The cold temperatures outside did nothing to slow down the staff of AHCC getting everyone ready to celebrate this ribbon cutting event late on a Friday evening. You have to be careful with those ceremonial scissors though!! Read More
If it was open I would have gotten a hot cocoa!
I spent three hours roaming the desert in Socorro County, New Mexico on a rural land shoot. I had five properties to get to criss crossing along a 7 mile path. My very last stop was back at the first stop, where I returned to get some sunset and twilight photos of the property. On the drive in I noticed this funky colored school bus up on a small hill. After I got the shots I needed for my client, I trekked a bit across the desert and up the hill to see if I could get a decent photo of the bus. It looks to be not so long ago abandoned from the quality of the signs still, but there are shrubs growing under and around it already. Read More
Engineers have fun too!
What a great time at the Albuquerque Convention Center photographing the WEEF-GEDC 2018 conference for Airbus! They hired me to photograph happenings at their booth in the vendor space focusing on their hashtag of #embracediversity and their chief engineer Jean Brice speaking at a panel and lastly their big awards dinner! This was one of the most fun events I have ever photographed. Who ever says engineers do not know how to have fun?? Thank you so much to Alina and the rest of the Airbus team for letting me be a part of this! Read More
Fire in the Rio Rancho Sky
I am often out in remote Rio Rancho on weekday evenings in the midst of a 55+ property rural land real estate photography assignment for Hemingway Land Company. On a recent shoot clouds were heavy on the horizon and I was counting on the sun dropping below them, just above the horizon, and allowing me to get some of my signature HDR sunset photos. The sun did in fact reveal itself, but with a fiery wrath! Read More
Santa Fe Food Photography Marathon!
Over two long days of food photography in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I got to know El Paisano Supermarket and its owner Miguel pretty well! I spent nearly 10 hours in total photographing the food, aisles, and piñatas in this unique market. Featured here are a selection of foods from the restaurant and carniceria. In rapid succession meal after meal was brought in front of my lens. Miguel even helped out holding the reflector for many of the shots to help things go as efficiently as possible during the shoot. Really, all the staff pitched in during these two marathon shoots which lead to the great results you see below. Read More
Having fun getting organized on a photo shoot!
I met Miriam at 1 Million Cups a few months ago and soon met with her for a 1-on-1 follow-up. I knew from her personality that we would have a great commercial photography photo shoot at her well organized home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is well organized because she is a certified professional organizer and the owner of More than Organized. Read More
Branding Drone Video in New Mexico
I met Glenn and Maria of 4 Directions Branding over the summer at a 1 Million Cups event. We then met for a 1-on-1 as it were meeting to get to know each other better and to see if our businesses would be a good match to eventually work together. We have not had that particular chance to work together yet, but we did have a photo shoot and drone flight together out in a random desert setting off of Highway 550 west of Bernalillo, New Mexico. Thank you Glenn & Maria for braving the cold morning! Read More
