Gray background like fleece, who knew?
I was contacted by an Arizona based company to make headshots for two employees here in Albuquerque, New Mexico following a very specific setup. Well, my usual lighting and shooting style matched the sample they sent exactly, save for the specific Westcott gray background they wanted. I ordered the gray background, which to my surprise felt more like freeze rather than the usual cotton material other foldable backgrounds are made out of. I really liked it as it was virtually wrinkle free right out of the box! The clients paid for and took the background with them, but I may order one for myself. This style gray background looks fantastic to me. It is bold and full of contrast. It also helps when Naomi and Noelle were on point in front of the lens. Read More
ABQ Athena City Council Candidate Headshots
Going to 1 Million Cups each Wednesday morning here in Albuquerque, New Mexico provides me with many opportunities on a weekly basis.

Dentist Headshots in Albuquerque for an actor or vice versa
Elizabeth is a dentist here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but she visited the JCP Home Studio not just for headshots to make her look like a friendly dentist, but also for her acting career as well! We started out with getting the friendly dentist headshots, then moved on to getting a serious headshot for a dentist role. It was impressive watching Elizabeth change her expressions between shots! Then we moved on to headshots just for acting. Dental jacket off, hair down, but we progressed in a similar way getting some smiling and some serious actor headshots. If you need dentist in your next project, no need to hire a method actor, contact Elizabeth! Read More
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
Engineer Headshots for all 25 at WSP
Another business here in Albuquerque, New Mexico knows the value of having uniform, professional business headshots for the entire team. WSP wanted me to get headshots of all the engineers that work in the Albuquerque, New Mexico office so that they all had a consistent look, but allowed for each person’s personality to still shine through. So some people preferred to be a little to the left, some a little to the right, some smiled, some did not. Regardless of these individual expressions, no doubt looking at all the headshots together, you can tell they are on the same team. This is something I really want to help all businesses with, showing that everyone is on the same team by having consistent, professional looking headshots from the owner to the newest hired person. This is the right impression to give to clients and customers! Read More
3 Cities 3 Law Offices for Headshots in New Mexico
In one week I traveled over 600 miles across New Mexico to make headshots of all three offices for Noble Law Firm. I started with the furthest first, going all the way down to Las Cruces (3 hours away), which as it were, had the smallest staff! Then the very next day I went up to Santa Fe (1 hour away) to make that locations’s headshots. The last office was the closest, right here in Albuquerque, where I not only made headshots, but also candids of the lawyers in action. Read More
