A noble return for more headshots
I returned to Noble Law Firm in Albuquerque, New Mexico once again for more business headshots as they have added to their team since I was last there making headshots two months ago. I really respect how everyone from partners in the law firm to the administrative staff all get the same professional headshot on their team page. If I were a potential client and saw that everyone at Noble Law Firm was treated the same way, I would think I would be treated very well as a client in turn. Does your team page look uniform and professional and like everyone is on the same team like Noble Law Firm’s does? Read More
Commercial Product Photography in ABQ done the fun way!
Who would have thought photographing liquid nitrogen tanks for BioLife Solutions would have been so fun! This was due mostly to the circumstances of the shoot, which involved a lot of moving parts from the aforementioned tanks, to multiple lighting setups and lens changes, to dogs being carried around! Just check out the BTS shots below to see what really was in before me as I was trying to make these photographs. The final results show a very sterile and uncluttered photo. Kylie was a lot of fun to work with as she had to work herself being the hand model for the products. Jessica helped out by keeping Artie out the way in his new sling, and adjusting lighting so I could stay focused behind the camera. It was a total team effort to make these photos! Read More
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
Inside Out Commercial Portraits in ABQ
Dr. Singh wanted new commercial portrait photos for his website so we met in downtown Albuquerque at the Albuquerque Convention Center. I thought we would mostly be using the Civic Plaza area as I had for another portrait shoot, but that was taken over by setting up for an outdoor concert. Part of being a professional photographer is being able to improvise right on the spot, so instead of starting outside, we went inside to the convention center. Having photography many events there, I knew a few spots that would work well. No one told us we could not make photographs inside, so we just went about it! 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. A recent one was meeting Athena Christodoulou who is running for Albuquerque City Council. She needed new headshots and I hold her I make the best headshots in the city and have photographed many politicians at all levels of government. We had a headshot shoot here at the JCP Home Studio, then I proceeded to run into her at several other events, like the 2019 AFRL Awards where her husband took home an award. Thank you for choosing me as your headshot photographer Athena! Read More
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
