Bear is meticulous, engaging and extraordinarily talented. His photos convey the mission of Every Child Pediatrics and the heart behind our work as a nonprofit pediatric practice serving over 23,000 kids in Colorado.

My challenge was unique. As the VP of Marketing for one of the nation's fastest growing startups I needed to secure a penthouse location, hire professional models and have a professional photo shoot worthy of national publications and websites done in less than two weeks. I turned to Pulitzer Prize Winner Bear Gutierrez, whom I had known professionally and used for family portraits before. The shoot turned out fantastic and what could have been a stressful experience was instead a highlight of the year. Bear has the eye and art of a journalist, but also understands the needs of a business, which results in amazing marketing materials that exude authenticity and heart. Marketing and business leaders can rest easy when working with Bear knowing they will get a quality professional product that exceeds their expectations. More...

Bear is simply put, a true professional and artist. I have worked with him for decades, most recently through communications work on a host of public policy initiatives. I can always count on Bear to provide me with compelling photographs of individuals that tell a story well beyond words. Beyond the quality of his work, Bear is also someone I trust in any situation. Often, I ask him to enter people's lives at their most vulnerable moments. He always does this with grace and never fails to make a connection that supports us all. I highly recommend Bear and, for myself, don't work with anyone else. More...

I just adore Bear! I first met Bear in 2011 when he became a customer at the fine art and photographic imaging company where I work. I have collaborated with him on numerous printing projects and have assisted in the process of transforming his amazing photographic images into art for mostly commercial and professional display and use. His creative process is way outside the box but ALWAYS spot-on. He doesn't just take beautiful pictures; he tells personal and intimate stories through stunningly creative visual techniques. His corporate professional portraits are NEVER boring and stiff, and his love for people is reflected back through the faces he photographs. Bear fuses his thorough grasp on the technical with a solid photojournalist background and completely douses that with a creative flair like I've rarely seen. Take all that and throw in his warm, genuine, compassionate and fun-loving personality and your photo shoot will be in the best of hands. More...

I've had the pleasure of working with Bear to update portraits for hundreds of professionals at my company. Beyond the artistry and detail of the images themselves, Bear is great at bringing out the best in people and making them genuinely smile. He has an optimistic attitude and has worked with us to develop a consistent look for the photos that aligns beautifully with our brand. Customer service is a top priority of his when it comes to making himself available for photo shoots, editing and delivering the photos in a timely manner, and ensuring that every individual is pleased with their photo. It has been exciting to work with him on more creative advertising projects as well, and he's a pro at scouting dynamic locations to bring the images to life. More...

I’ve worked with Bear for a couple of years now on executive portraits for our company. All I’ve asked is that our employees bring their smile and good attitude and Bear will do the rest. With his delightful personality Bear is able to get our employees to show their genuine, relaxed smile and feel comfortable in a situation most of them are apprehensive about. I’ve often had staff members contact me after their shoot to send praises about how well it went. Here’s an example : I just wanted to give you feedback on the photoshoot. Bear and his assistant were very professional and a lot of fun to work with. They even took more pictures when I didn’t like the first set so much. I was very impressed! From this statement you can see that Bear will go the extra mile to ensure that each person is happy with the photo that they feel represents them the best. After the day of shooting Bear is in constant contact about the time frame of editing and delivering the photos which is always complete in a very reasonable time frame. Bear is a true master of photography and a true professional. More...

Bear is thoughtful, imaginative and technically superior. His photographs make me smile. Every time he shows me his latest images I'm surprised because he always does something unexpected. As a client, this is truly special to have someone always go the extra mile. Not only is he a great photographer, he is also a great person and a joy to work with and be around. More...

Bear is our "go to guy" in the Colorado region. Of the hundreds of professional photographers I've worked with over the years, he's among the elite. He can make something out of nothing. But when he has something, "extraordinary" photos flow from his creativity. More...
