I had an great one-hour photo session with Barry. He had me do a variety a variety of poses, attire and lighting, and used some posing techniques to help me look my best. Barry sent me a final selection of 6 photos. I selected one of them for my corporate Skype for Business photo and it’s been amazing how many colleagues have noticed the photo, all saying words to the effect “that’s a great photo of you”. Thank you, Barry!

I’ve had the pleasure of working in the technology world with Barry for many years. Barry is a true example of a talented and dedicated professional. Barry recently provided an executive photo shoot to go along with my business bio. I’m normally pretty stiff in front of a camera. Barry made my photo session pure enjoyment. His great sense of humor and his eye for capturing the essence of his subject are what make a session with Barry a truly rewarding and productive experience. I whole heartedly recommend Barry for any discerning individuals and/or organizations that are interested in first rate photography services.

I used Barry to take several business photographs for me and he did a fantastic job. I especially like his technique for minimizing the visibility of a double chin in a photo! Ask him how he does it. and he does not retouch photos to do it. Count on Barry to do a great job for you.

Barry Braunstein Photography Q&A

Company Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

There's not any one secret - in the case of headshot photography, it's a combination of lighting, posing, composition, background, and most important expression. I work with my clients to coach them before and during the session to give them a great image that shows confidence with approachability.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

Who is the audience that will be viewing the images? What message do you want to convey? Where will the image(s) be shown? What is your "brand"?

What do you love most about your job?

Working with people to create images they never thought were possible

What inspired you to start your own business?

I've been shooting since high school, and have done paid work part time over the years. Enough people have told me that I should turn pro full time and finally decided to take the plunge.

Why should our clients choose you?

They're looking for images that look natural yet professional. Many of my clients have had poor experiences with other photographers - all my engagements start with a consultation prior to the session to discuss goals and objectives, who the audience is that will be viewing the images, and what message(s) they want the image to convey. We then discuss things such as clothing, hair, makeup (if applicable), jewelry, background color, lighting, etc.. we'll use for the session. During the session, I shoot "tethered" which allows us to view the images as the session progresses, making adjustments as we progress to get the best images possible - you'll leave the session knowing you have a number of great images to choose from. The best images of the session are then posted on a secure website where you can view them, share with others, and select your favorite(s). I can provide professional retouching as needed, along with hair/makup artists for the session.

On Location/Commercial Photography

Onsite Shoots – Have Studio, Will Travel You need headshots for your team but want to get it done efficiently and effectively, with a common brand/look? No worries, I will bring the studio to your office. And for very large teams, I can spread the shoot across multiple days, allowing for people being out of the office, etc. Less Down Time, More Convenience For businesses, this is often the most efficient way to get the shots done, whether for your executive team or your entire company. And, it allows for potential group shots. Same Great Look Using the same equipment in my studio and on the road, the images will be consistent across the board, and with your brand. Included Consultation Prior to the Session Each onsite engagement is customized to meet your individual needs and budget, and it starts with a live discussion. Click on the button below to schedule your consultation. Updates to Your Team New hires, promotions – change happens all the time. And no doubt you’ll want to update your website with new photos. But they need to have the same look and feel. Problem solved – have the new person come to my studio – I will use the same lighting/background setup that I used when I was onsite. Consistency and Expediency Since I use the same gear in or out of the studio, the results are consistent. And I can generally schedule a session within a week. Cost Efficiency For groups of 10 or more, onsite shooting is more cost effective than studio shots. Contact me for a customized quote to meet your specific needs.
