Rocking it on her first headshot shoot!
Taylor contacted me about actor headshots here in Albuquerque, New Mexico saying she had never had any made before. I told her that more and more actors are choosing me as their headshot photographer and that I could make great headshots for her like I have for many other actors already this year. As you can see from the headshots in this blogpost, for her very first headshot shoot, Taylor absolutely rocked it! We shot on both a white and a black background as I do for most headshot clients these days. I start shooting on white, and finish with black. The latter color usually wows the client with how different the photo ends up looking. Thank you Taylor for choosing me as your headshot photographer! Read More
Colorful professional actor headshots in ABQ
More and more actors are visiting the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico for modern and creative professional headshots. This time, in editing, I added a bit of color to this pair of headshots I made for James, which were originally shot on a white background. For the first photo, I sampled the background color from his hair, and below the blue from his shirt. Thank you James for choosing me as your headshot photographer as many other actors have to!

Actor Headshots take 2
As a professional photographer it is the highest compliment when a client returns, and especially so when it is less than two months! Jake returned to the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico for a couple more actor headshots. His first shoot produced most shots with a semi-profile view of his face while wearing a black leather jacket. This time he wanted more straight on shots and no jacket. He also changed up his hairstyle. I think we may have outdone ourselves with this second shoot! Thanks Jake and hope these get your some awesome acting roles! Read More
Breaking the rules for this comedic actor headshot in ABQ
I have had an increasing number of actors visit the JCP Home Studio lately to get great headshots to help them with their show business careers. It is always great to have an actor in front of the lens as I can just tell them to turn it on, and then all I have to do is make sure the lighting is right. For this shot though, I did suggest breaking the rules sort of, by having Connor turn back against his body, but then have his eyes look back toward center. When I made the shot I thought it did not work, but once we looked at it on the big 27” 4K monitor at the studio we both liked it right away. Thanks Connor for letting me suggest some unusual poses that turned out to be our favorite in the end! Read More
Headshots for a Netflix audition
Nicole called me to see if I had same day availability to make actor headshots for her as she was going to audition for a role in a Netflix series and needed high quality headshots asap here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I already had another headshot session scheduled and a drone flight too, but I we were able to schedule a late evening photoshoot. The results, to speak frankly, could be my best photography work to date as far as a single person in studio photo shoot. Read More
As good as L.A. headshot photographers!
One of the biggest compliments I can get as a headshot photographer in Albuquerque is when an actor from L.A. chooses me as his headshot photographer, and after our session, says my work is a good as those photographers in L.A.! Thank you Jake for a great headshot session, your Google review, and for making my job very easy behind the camera by being so good yourself in front of it. Hire Jake! Read More
Brandon called me up to talk about having headshots made for his budding acting career. I was very flattered to learn he would be coming all the way from Colorado and chose me out of all headshot photographers in Albuquerque! He wanted a proper, full-on headshot shoot with a MUA (makeup artist) present and multiple outfit changes. This is the kind of headshot shoot I will be doing more as I want to offer clients a high end experience like you get in New York or L.A. right here in Albuquerque. Read More
