Remember Your Best Moments with Adam Durant Photography

By Marina I. Jokic

A poignant photograph can speak volumes. Through this artistic medium, a skilled photographer can reveal distinctive traits and feelings, or capture a breathtaking and unspoiled natural landscape with ease. For Adam Durant, walking in the steps of his photographer father felt like the right professional choice. He decided to open Adam Durant Photography because he was moved from an early age by the work of his father.

"I was given the photography bug by my father, himself an accomplished photographer," he said. "We used to print our own photos in a makeshift darkroom at the back of the garage."

Durant has over 11 years of theater, photography, and film production experience which has served him well in producing expressive and distinctive images for his clients. Building his business in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Durant has garnered a loyal clientele and enjoys the favorable weather conditions. Beautiful sunsets and warm weather are Durant's allies in his effort to convey the meaningful moments of people's lives in print and digital form.

Durant's forte is in event and portrait photography, from glamour shots to wedding ceremonies and other special occasions. He has developed a knack for making people look striking and genuine in his photos, an ability to convey a je ne sais quoi that really stays with the viewer. Whether it's your residence, workplace, or natural surroundings, Durant can travel to your desired location and work within your budget and needs. In the end, he says, it's always better to hire a professional rather than tasking your friend with taking your photos.

"There are tricks of the trade that allow us to capture the image the way that the client sees in [his or her] head," Durant said.

Durant vividly remembers developing photographs in the garage with his dad. That love for the craft born in his youth continues to come out in his work to this day.

"I can still smell the chemicals," he said. "Once I pursued the arts in college, I knew that there would be a way for me to use my knowledge of theatre, film, commercials, and photography to capture the best images possible."

Whether it is an event unfolding in front of a backdrop of a beautiful New Mexico sunset or an unbridled concert at one of Albuquerque's many popular venues, Durant is confident he can tell a compelling story with his images.

Born and raised in Albuquerque, Durant has worked in theater and film for years, and has found the skills he's developed incredibly useful in his current profession. Some of his clients include Christus St. Vincent Hospital, 3 Advertising, and Yelp.
