Creative Headshots in Albuquerque New Mexico with Jackie

Creative Headshots in Albuquerque New Mexico with Jackie

Headshots for a Writer

I met Jackie a good while back at a marketing presentation. As I do with everyone I meet at presentations and networking events I checked out her website and follow up with suggestions of how my photography may help their business. Jackie was in the process of doing an entire website redesign and needed a headshot to go on it, my specialty! She visited the JCP Home Studio and we went through a variety of poses, background colors and even wardrobe changes to find a creative headshot style that worked for her new site. She chose the headshot above to use on her ABOUT THE WRITER page on her new website! Thank you Jackie!

Albuquerque Headshots with Suzie Fun and Creative

Albuquerque Headshots with Suzie Fun and Creative

Suzie visits the JCP Home Studio for Headshots!

It was a long time coming, but Suzie was finally able to visit the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico for a headshot session! We had first talked several months ago, so I was glad when Suzie texted and said do you have any time available this morning?? Luckily I did and got the studio lights setup in a hurry! Like many clients, Suzie was not exactly thrilled at the prospect of having her photo taken, but had to. We tried a couple different lighting setups and backgrounds, before ending up with this seated position on a black background. It is my job to find the right style and look to make my headshot clients feel comfortable during the photo session and be thrilled with the results! This is what a professional headshot photographer is able to do! Thank you Suzie for visiting and being patient until we got just the right headshot for you!

Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce Staff & Ambassador Headshots

Headshots for the Hispano Chamber in Albuquerque

I am proud to be a member of the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce so when they asked me to make updated headshots for new staff members and ambassadors, I was very happy to do so.  They wanted the same style and look as their previous headshots, which meant having the U.S. and New Mexico flags in the background.  Having seen the outdoor location used for the old headshots, I suggested we take things indoors and control the harsh daylight that was visible in the semi-covered outdoor hallway that was used before.  This allowed me to get consistent results over a long shoot without worrying about the sun changing the ambient light and adding more or less shadow to the background.

Headshots for my networking friend

I met Adam a while back at an event for the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce.  We stayed in touch via email, and continued to run into each other at other Chamber events and at 1 Million Cups ABQ too.  It was finally a good time for him to visit the JCP Home Studio and bring his two start up partners Ron and Michael.  They wanted some uniformity to the headshots in terms of feel, look, and smile, while of course still making each person show their own personality.  I think we were successful in getting three headshots that look alike in general, but have individuality to them as well!

Second Sneak Preview of One of Many Project

Second Sneak Preview of One of Many Project

A favorite photo

This is a second sneak preview of the 10 women I photographed at the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the We Rise organization that will be featured in the One Of Many photography exhibition at the KD Neeley Gallery on October 05, 2018.  I will be one of five photographers featured at the event which you can find out more info about at this Facebook event page.  The photo above is my personal favorite from the shoot. I chose a tight crop to really focus in on the emotion in the eyes.  Shooting with my new Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro SP lens allowed me to focus very closely and get extreme detail.  Be sure and mark your calendars for the evening of October 5th to come out and support this cause and see these images as large prints.

Getting Fit & Photography

Networking friend Jennifer has been coming to the JCP Home Studio which doubles as a workout space the past couple of Fridays for a dose of Insanity Max 30 with me and Jessica.  After one such workout, I setup a few lights to have fun with some fitness photos.  They each picked up a dumbbell and showed their strength!

 A very special photoshoot for We Rise & One Of Many

A recent Saturday was spent photographing ten women here at the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico for an upcoming social awareness fundraising event on October 5, 2018 at the KD Neeley Gallery.  The organization is called We Rise and this particular photo shoot was for a photo exhibition called One Of Many.  Find out more information on the Facebook event page.  This is a sneak preview with one of the women from that day.  Between now and the event I will be posting more sneak previews.  The theme of the photo shoot was to focus tightly on the eyes, which were done by a make-up artist.  I used my brand new Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro SP lens to capture the emotion in the eye and the detail in the make-up along with a clamshell / beauty dish lighting setup.
