Locations & Session Styles

 

Locations are Client's Choice.

I can work pretty much anywhere in Alb city limits, outdoor. 

If you need some location suggestions just look at the examples below.

 I suggest locations based on the style of picture that you want and your personality.
 

With location comes Style

Do you want a general background of leaves, earth, sky, flowers or concrete?

Urban Black & White:

The rule of thumb is that a great photo will look great in black and white or color. While I agree with that, there are some photos that need advanced adjustments make it sing. If I know your goal is black and white, I will adjust the images accordingly.

The Favorite Client Spots are:

1. Tingley Beach

2. 6th & Central

3. Bachechi Open Space

4. Elena Gallegos

5. Duck Pond

These are very popular for clients and for photographers.

They can be densly populated.

 

One VERY important part of a location is permission and entry fees

• Alb Zoo and Garden require permits and fees which are passes along to you, the client. I suggest using free locations instead

• Commercial and Personal Property have use restrictions, permits and permissions

There are TONs of free areas all over town, we don't have to pay fees and get permits unless you really want that specific area.

Albuquerque is beautiful. We don't need to go to zoo or bio park to get flowers and scenery, I promise.
