Solar Eclipse May 2012 Farmington NM Videographer Shutterfreek

Had the rare opportunity to accidentally have camera in hand during the Solar Eclipse this Sunday May 20th, 2012.  I was challenging to pull off without making eye contact with the sun several times during the process.  I'm now blind in my left eye and welcome all donations for a bionic eye replacement.  Just kidding.  My eyes seem fine.  But this was truly a spectacle and I loved every minute of it.  

For those of you who did not get an opportunity to actually make eye contact with the Solar Eclipse, Shutterfreek Video presents a slight treated way to do that.  

Farmington NM Photographer - Solar Eclipse May 2012

Had an awesome opportunity to pop a few shots of the Lunar Eclipse last night.  I was amazed at how difficult and scary it was to attempt this.  Not only was a concerned about looking into this sucker...but I honestly I really had no idea what I was doing.  I don't know the science behind it, but the 8 point flare is just super cool.

Famington NM & Durnago CO Wedding Photographer | Videographer - featuring John & Tayler at San Juan Country Club

As a photographer/videographer you always feel blessed to be a part of an event so significant as a Bride & Groom's Wedding experience. Shooting John & Tayler's Wedding was no exception. Held at San Juan Country Club, here in Farmington, NM the details, the people, the venue all made for a spectacular photography experience. Their love and happiness oozed out of every photo. We felt honored to be part of the experience.

Any opportunity we get to shoot photos or video in the Cortez or Durango CO areas we jump on it. John was rocking a super cool Tungsten Ring provided by Tungsten Direct. As part of the couples "Trash The Dress" session we decided to shoot them in their element in Cortez on their family ranch with horses. We were able to pull off this little promo in the process. It was an amazing experience and something we want to do a lot more of.

Here at Shutterfreek, whether it's photography, video, or design we do it all exactly the way you want to remember it.

Farmington NM Photography - Video - Design | featuring Garrett | REALITY FREEK SENIOR SESSION

You may or may not know that we've actually been behind a video camera more than a digital still camera over the years and ABSOLUTELY LOVE shooting and editing video. DSLR HD Video has changed the game completely making it so that companies like Farmington, NM based Shutterfreek, can produce photos and video in virtually the same breath.

This particular video is a real world example of the type of product we deliver when a Senior signs up for our "REALITY FREEK" package. It's essentially 2 sessions combined into 1 package. Seniors receive 2 disks. 1 disk with all the final edited Hi-Res Master Version Photos along with a web ready version of the video for youtube, Facebook, or whatever....and 1 mastered DVD that families can pop into the player and enjoy for many generations to come.

In our opinion, there's really no better way to capture the core of a Senior's world, perspective, and personality during such a significant time in their life. Well worth the investment, and something completely unique to this area.

Thank you Garrett and Vicki for being so stinkin cool, and for giving us at shot at making this vision into a "REALITY".

Farmington NM Commercial Photographer | featuring Next Level Home Audio & Video

Next Level Home Audio & Video is much much more than just your average electronics specialists. Turns out Owner Randy Allen is a tech genius who settles for nothing less than total perfection with regards to quality of gear, innovative installation, and customer satisfaction.

Originally going into this project we had no idea what to expect. Upon completion, we were completely blown away by the sophistication and brilliance behind the systems we photographed. Don't be mislead by the name. We were able to shoot the dual HD flat screen set up in one of BP's board rooms that was mind blowing. They did a complete digital makeover at The Marriot. There's no project to large or to small for this company. They're willing to do it a fair price...all completely guaranteed.

Not only are we super stoked about this type of HDR photography project, but we're super excited to have stumbled on to this gem of a business..right here in good ole Farmington, NM. With Christmas right around the corner. Let it be known that these guys make Santa look like the Rock Star of All Time! :)

Farmington, NM & Durango, CO Wedding Photographer | Blue Lake Ranch - Hesperus, CO | featuring the beautiful Sara and Wes

As a photographer in Farmington NM, as we've said before...any opportunity we get to photograph in Colorado is as refreshing as drinking water from a natural spring in the Lukachukai Mountains. Sara and Wes, made this experience...that much more sweet as the graced they grounds at the pristine Blue Lake Ranch and Ridgewood Events Center in Hesperus, CO.

This wedding was fraught with love, laughter, tears, joy, friendship, family, and all the essential ingredients for a spectacular wedding photographic experience. We're so grateful we were selected to capture it all. Sara and Wes are truly beautiful people inside and out...and we wish them an amazing and adventurous life together.

Kylee was shredding it on the set during this particular shoot.

Thanks so much for letting us capture your cool-ness!

Farmington NM Photography & Vide | senior photo session featuring Kaitlyn of Aztec High School

It's such an amazing opportunity as a Farmington, NM based photography company to be able to shoot clients "multiple" times. The pressure's on...with each additional shoot, to constantly raise the bar to create something new and exciting. This was our 3rd time photographing "model status" Kaitlyn of Aztec, NM, and as usual...her natural photogenic genetics made creating cool, inviting images....super easy.

We decide to do a sunrise shoot. U can't tell, but she's wearing a pair of goose bumps for the entire shoot. :) Though it was a little chili...the lighting, environment, and props (complimentary of a great friend) made for a killer session for sure.

Thank you so much you guys for trusting us enough to capture such a beautiful senior. We've developed a bond a friendship and really appreciate everything!

Farmington NM Photographer & Videographer | Silk Home Coming Fashion Show | Featuring La Roux Salon Models

We were very grateful to be invited by Silk Bridal Boutique to participate in this years Home Coming Fashion Show. The event featured High School Models in Silk Boutique formal wear, rockin it hard on the red carpet. We talked after the show about how edgy this event was for good ole Farmington, NM. After spending time in Salt Lake, LA, Nashville, Denver, Houston, and Toronto we can safely say that this area has some of the most beautiful, talented, trend setting individuals anywhere.

So Silk's master mind networking plan involved pairing 5 Salons with 5 Photography Companies...each representing a respective High School. We were very fortunate to be paired with La Roux Salon in Aztec, NM. As it turned out, Kaitlyn (featured below) has been photographed by us twice before. The second we saw her in the mix....we knew the photos were going to be amazing! She makes it EASY!

Candyss (below) lead us to believe that the "fro" was not a typical style. Her hair was BRILLIANT...and the make-up absolutely stunning! All of these young models were 100% completely professional model material.

This was the second time seeing La Roux in action "Air Brushing" make-up. It's true artistry and finesse. We loved the tones, colors, blending, shading, and complimentary nature of each girls make up. It wasn't over the top...extremely classy...and perfectly customized to fit each girls personality. Not to down play the other Salons work...we were just very impressed with the professionalism and creativity that went into this event. Kendra (below) pulled off this classy modern take on a more retro look BRILLIANTLY! Everything about the over all composition was MONEY!

Needless to say, photos like these wouldn't be possible with the savy, progressive, innovative direction Silk has been able to infuse into this area with their style, taste and talent. Hands down, they are in our opinion the final stop when it comes to investing in Formal or Wedding Wear. We've shot many, many dresses that have left their doors, and have yet to meet a client that is anything but elated about the final product.

Thank you so much Silk, for involving us in your vision. We were very grateful to be part of it all...and look forward to shooting more and more stunning dresses moving forward.
