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
Vegetarian Comfort Food Photography in ABQ
I have been vegetarian for over 22 years. It is much easier being vegetarian now than it was then, but a fully vegetarian restaurant is still a rare thing to come across. Thus, I was extra excited to get a UberEats food photography assignment for The Acres which features comfort vegetarian food, as they describe it at their Albuquerque, New Mexico location. Shawn and his staff were very prepared and helped out, with one waitress even hand modeling in the above shot1 And the topper, I got to take the green chile veggie cheeseburger to go! Thanks Shawn!

Santa Fe Commercial Real Estate Photography
I had the pleasure and creative challenge of photographing the beautiful Inn of the Anasazi in historic downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico. Each room, each space was full of architectural features, design touches, and soft light. The challenge was capturing that existing atmosphere with the right additional off camera lighting to show off the room or space such that is shows well in a photo, but maintains the tranquil and warm feel I had standing there. From the library, to the wine cellar, to the lobby, all throughout this inn I kept finding more and more incredible rooms to photograph using the flambient technique. Thank you very much to the staff of the Inn of the Anasazi for making this long shoot go very smoothly! Read More
