Last year, I was commissioned to create a series or portraits for Albuquerque Economic Development, Inc., a private, non-profit corporation that helps promote and recruit local businesses for use on their new website. I was trilled when they asked to do it again this summer. Above are a few of my favorite resulting pictures. Thanks for looking!

Two recent portraits, both subjects named John, both photographed on location, not in the studio.
On the left is John Link, a composer in NYC. On the right is John Ledwith, a Consultant & Executive Coach at Sandia National Laboratories here in Albuquerque. It’s amazing how many people overlook having a professional portrait for their online business profiles. These are very different from my documentary work, but they are another tool in my bag of services to offer my clients, which help support my documentary work by allowing me to buy food and pay my mortgage.
I was commissioned to create a portrait series for Albuquerque Economic Development, Inc., a private, non-profit corporation that helps promote and recruit local businesses for use on their new website and some additional promotional materials. Fifteen lit environmental portraits of business executives may not sound like very many to some, but given the schedule demands of these CEO’s, VP’s and plant managers, it’s no small task. Most of the portraits had to be done very quickly to accommodate their schedules. Big thanks to Eric CdeBaca of AED for helping arrange all the appointments. The wide format is to accommodate the demands of the AED website, which provide an interesting compositional challenge.

I got a rare chance to peek inside local jewelry manufacturer and antiques dealer Gertrude Zachary‘s amazing downtown home recently for The Wall Street Journal. You can see the photos on their site here. If you’d really like to see more, double-click any of the photos above or follow this link to my archive where you can see the whole take. Big thanks to Jakob Schiller for helping with lighting. We had to move quickly, and it was a challenge with so many rooms, so many chandeliers. I’m just glad we didn’t break anything of more value than an old Nikon SB-28.
I had a quick business assignment last week for The Wall Street Journal. Local man, been laid off twice so he started is own business making dog treats. Get in, get out, no problem, right? Oh, did I mention the subject, David Shunkey is autistic, doesn’t speak, and really doesn’t make eye contact? A challenge for me as a photographer, tough subject on a tight deadline, but an inspirational story I was happy to help tell.
