Best Actor Headshots in Albuquerque New Mexico with Taylor

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!

Having a headshot on your website gets more clients

In asking for feedback from a client about why that client chose me, among the multiple reasons given, the one that stood out to me was because I had a picture of myself on my website. This is the exact advice I give to many people I meet at networking events that have, to me, anonymous websites without their photo and sometimes even without their name anywhere on the site. If I meet you in person, I will go to your website later to follow up and seeing a modern, professional headshot helps me remember who I was talking to. If we have never met and I am seeking out a service or product, seeing the face of the actual person behind that business makes a big difference to me personally. I believe this is especially if your job involves working with people. People want to see who they will be working with, hiring, making a purchase from. This is one of many reason why having a modern, professional headshot is not only critical, but also the best value in marketing and branding there is!

Modern Professional Headshot Photography in Albuquerque New Mexico

Consistency in headshots is very important

Featuring another headshot from a big shoot for an engineering company in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This entire company now has modern, professional headshots, all uniform in style and appearance showing their 70+ person team is a team. Professional headshots for the entire staff are important for presenting a unified team to potential customers and clients. If only some have modern, professional headshots, and the customer sees they are working with the person without a professional headshot, that leads to thinking am I going to be getting the best possible service? Is this person really a part of this company? Leaving questions for the client/customer is not good right from the get go. Professional headshots for the entire staff leaves no questions, and gives a strong answer, this is a team!

Chamber of Commerce American Flag Headshots in Albuquerque New Mexico

Patriotic Headshots in New Mexico

The Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce has added some new team members since I last made headshots for them in September of last year. So I took my mobile studio headshot photography setup back to the Chamber, but this time shooting outside in a breezeway. The American Flag and the New Mexico State Flag were still used as the background, and I still used my signature setup of a 26” softbox setup as a beauty dish with a silver reflector for the lighting. One addition this time was putting a light on the flags to provide separation of the background from the subject, as the end of the breezeway was in dark shade.

Pepper gets a modern headshot in ABQ

I first met Pepper during a summer long series on leadership her company, Giant Worldwide, was giving free for members of the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce. When she needed a new business headshot for Giant, I was glad she called me! During our business headshot photo session I flipped the background from white to black to offer Pepper two very different looks for her headshots. Combined with beauty dish lighting, I was able to make a modern headshot that will standout from all the dated business headshots people are still using. It is my goal to for everyone to have a creative and modern headshot to represent themselves, their brand, and their business at their best to clients and customers.
