Getting a lawyer to smile!
This time I bring you the headshots I made for Giddens Law Firm in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Check out the head to toe headshots and the commercial portraits I made for these attorneys and their staff. Continuing with the theme I had for the entire shoot, that lawyer headshots and photos do not have to look stern and serious, I tried to get as much personality and some friendliness in the lawyers in particular to come out in their headshots. It was a little easier with the law firm staff to smile not surprisingly! Read More
Santa Fe Ceramic Art Photography
Santa Fe ceramic artist Noah Starer usually brings his art to my Home Studio to be photographed, but this time I took the photo studio to his art studio up in Santa Fe. Why? Because he has created a new serious of modular ceramic art that just has way too many individual pieces to move all the way to Albuquerque and also he would have to stay on site to setup each group, whereas normally they are just single pieces that I can place and photograph myself.

Light it right to get it right
Having the right lighting setup is always important for headshots, and especially so for what I call head to toe headshots, or full body headshots. I previously shared commercial portraits I made of the attorneys and staff of Giddens Law in Albuquerque, New Mexico. These are the head to toe headshots made right in a small conference room in their office! The conference table had to be moved to feet the 9’ wide seamless white paper background, but other than that a full studio setup right in a lawyer’s office! Read More

Making lawyer photographs that are not stereotypical in ABQ
How to make a photograph of lawyers not looking like the typical photo of lawyers? My first thought was to have the lawyers in different positions, as in not all of them standing with arms crossed, not looking sternly into the lens. I wanted movement in the photo. I wanted personality in the photo. The result was the above photo. Using the lobby in their office building in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I thought the available bench with a glass and plant background could work. Thanks to my assistant Jessica for the tip to move the bench out away from the wall to position the standing lawyer better. I have since learned this was the lawyers’ favorite shot from the photo session as well! Read More
Standout on LinkedIn with a modern headshot
People are starting to find me specifically looking for headshots for LinkedIn. The more headshots I make and the more I write blog posts about how important it is to standout with a modern headshot, the more I find clients wanting a new headshot for LinkedIn specifically I get. When I make a new connection on LinkedIn and am then offered other people I may want to connect with, I scroll down looking at who has a professional looking headshot, and who has some casual photo taking with a cell phone with a busy background. What kind of impression do you want to make with potential employers, clients, and customers? Shannon definitely wanted to make the best impression she could on LinkedIn regarding the visual impact a modern headshot presents to anyone browsing her profile, looking to make a connection, and even thinking about hiring her.

Colorful Modern Business Headshot in Albuquerque
Are you still using a headshot from years ago? From over a decade ago? Yes, I have clients come to me getting their first new headshot sometimes in over 10 years! Photography has changed a lot since then, and a lot in just the past few years. Modern, creative lighting can now make for a whole new generation of headshot that is no longer the stuffy rectangle on a swirly gray background. If your headshot does not look as modern, as professional, as appealing as the one above, I would very much like to have a headshot session with you at the JCP Home Studio or right in your home or office so you show yourself to clients and customers as the modern professional you are!
