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.
My first assignment for the New York Times was this portrait of Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios. He is perhaps the most powerful comic-book geek in the movie business today. I always want to make great pictures, regardless of how big or small the publication or story. My hands were tied a bit on this one, as everything on set of The Avengers is top secret, so I can’t tell you about the big movie stars I met or how the movie ends. While I do like this picture, it was a bit frustrating because there were so many amazing places around the sets that would have been great if we could have gotten clearance to make a picture around it. All that is just to say, I want to get another chance to shoot for The Times and show them what I can do if I’m allowed to sink my teeth into an assignment. Thanks to Robert for getting the screen photo when the picture was on the Times home page in the early hours.
Portrait of one of my favorite non-neice kids, Rea Sandoval, photographed on the smokey West Mesa of Albuquerque, or as the young star described it to her mother: “Some junk place”
There are some additional pics on my archive.
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.
