Bio - Gillen-Photography

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Curtis Gillen and I am an action sports, outdoor lifestyle, and commercial photographer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I cover endurance racing events  in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and beyond. I have an excellent rapport with some of the largest race organizers in New Mexico, and look forward to discussing your photography needs. 

I was drawn to photography while living in Ft. Collins, Colorado over ten years ago. My passion for cycling, running, and various endurance action sports has guided my perspective through the lens since then.

I am an avid cyclist and have raced road and mountain bikes occasionally through the years. I understand what it takes to train for endurance events, and to push your mind and body to the breaking point. My experience racing helps me capture the excitement and anguish athletes experience during endurance action sports.  

Beyond the excitement of outdoor action sports, I enjoy the unique challenges of advertising and commercial photography. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and I take great pride in helping a business look their best. I look forward to discussing your event or business photography needs. 

I spend my free time enjoying the beautiful deserts and mountains of the Southwest with my family. When I am not playing with my sons, I am riding my road bike,  mountain bike, or dirt bike. Two wheels have always been my release, and I ride every chance I get.
