Santa Fe on location political candidate photos
I continue to add to the number of politicians and candidates I have photographed in 2019, ranging from the U.S. Surgeon General to the Governor of New Mexico, to most recently Alexis Johnson running for U.S. Congress NM District 3 in Santa Fe. Alexis had a very busy schedule, but it worked out that right after I finished two drone flights already in Santa Fe, her schedule was open as well and we met outside on location and in less than 30 minutes made this headshot and portrait. I am accustomed to making photos in time constraints, and had my full studio headshot setup save for the background, as I just used an existing wall for that. Then it was a quick change of setup to go make a portrait with a greener background. It was a quick shoot, but we made the most of it for sure. Read More
Referrals get complimentary headshots!
Coralee has been both a networking friend and a client for a long time here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Recently she gave me a great referral to photograph a hotel recently bought by one of her clients, as she is a commercial real estate broker. As a thank you to Coralee, I invited her to come to the JCP Home Studio for a complimentary headshot session. I really appreciate referrals, so I was glad to be able to make these great headshots for Coralee. Thank you Coralee for thinking of me! Read More
Best Psychologist Headshots in Albuquerque
Heather contacted me wanting headshots to represent her as the professional she is, a psychologist. She even came to Albuquerque all the way from Arizona having specifically sought me out to be her headshot photographer after doing extensive online research! I am very glad that Heather chose me as her headshot photographer and traveled over 3 hours because it was a very fun shoot as her partner and her dog were in studio too! It was a lot of fun, and also as you can see some fantastic headshots with a lot of impact were made. Read More
Fine Product Photos of Fine Soap in ABQ
I received a phone call from Trish about making product photography shots of her fine soaps here at the JCP Home Studio, but a shoot that would first be preceded by prop shopping at Thrift Town! So we met at my favorite thrift store in Albuquerque, where I helped her choose some props to use in the background of the product shots, and then we had the actual shoot. Trish did a great job picking out excellent props and helping with the staging of the soap, allowing me to concentrate on the technical aspects of getting the lighting right first, and then the composition with the soap being well placed among the props for maximum impact the her customers view the soap photos on her website. It was a really fun shoot starting with shopping and ending with some really great photos of very fine soap! And thank you Trish for leaving two bars behind for me! Read More
Say no to stock photos by keeping it real!
Much better than using stock photography, have your own team be in the photos like in these images I made for Noble Law Firm in Albuquerque New Mexico. For their website redesign, these immigration lawyers wanted authentic photos of the actual people that work at the law firm, not soulless stock photos that do not represent at all what a client will experience when visiting their office. These photos were made in the same conference room a client would see, in the same office their actual lawyer would meet them in, plus the actual partners of the law firm in the very lobby you see upon entering. To me this is very powerful for branding, for making a client choose your law firm over one of the many, many others. If I can see in your website what it will be like to be a client with your law firm, that would make me much more likely to choose that law firm over some anonymous stock photography filled law firm website.
