Barry takes phenomenal photos - it's clear in his portfolio that he captures the unique individual shining through each photo. I enjoyed working with him for his approachability, technical expertise, professionalism in scheduling, excitement and willingness to explain and teach aspects of his craft, and the quality of the results. I will keep him in mind for future needs and look forward to linking him up with friends looking for a photographer. More...

The entire process was painless and actually fun! Barry took time to understand my reasons for getting a professional headshot, and provided guidance and instruction for posing during the shoot. The pictures turned out great, and I consider these photos to be a worthwhile investment. I'd gladly refer my friends and colleagues to Barry for a professional, high quality headshot photography session. More...

We worked with Barry on headshots for our company. He was not only professional and prompt, but a pleasure to work with as well. He came on-site to our office and accommodated the busy schedules of everyone being photographed wonderfully. I would highly recommend him to anyone and will likely be using him in the future for other projects. More...

I needed a professional head shot for a Board of Directors book and found Barry through google. And what a find! It always feels so uncomfortable to have these head shots taken, but Barry made me feel at ease immediately, which made the pictures look more natural. After a careful analysis of the best side of my face and his instruction on the perfect angle to hold my head to highlight natural curves, the fun began. His set-up, from the lighting to the instant feedback via monitors, made the process efficient and the product looking better than reality. The turnaround was fast and his online preview process was both easy to use and easy to get other's opinions on the best shot to select. I couldn't be happier with the result. More...

Barry is an awesome photographer!! He is so great at bringing out the best in his clients to get an absolutely wonderful picture that captures the essence of a person. I am usually very camera-shy, and quite uncomfortable getting my photograph taken, let alone having to pose for one in a manner that is fit for professional use. Barry was great at making me feel at ease, right from the the pre-photoshoot phone call all the way through the actual photo session. He took his time to take the photos, have me check out the results at a monitor set up right next to the photoshoot area, and made adjustments for poses and expressions on the fly to improve the photos even more. In the end, he got me a good number of photos of me with a natural, relaxed, but professional look - so many, in fact, I had a hard time choosing! :)Barry's e-mail responses were quick, whether it was for scheduling, questions, or recommendations for photos. The turnaround time for the photos was also fast. I also enjoyed the platform he used to send me the pictures to help me choose - it was nice to be able to select some of my 'favorites' and send them to family to help with decision making. All in all, Barry is a fantastic photographer, a great coach, and a great person to do business with. I'll be using his services again in the future! Thank you Barry! More...

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. More...

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. More...

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! More...

Q&As

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.

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"?

Working with people to create images they never thought were possible

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.

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.

I can travel on location to a client, however during Covid this capability is suspended

Individual sessions are held in my garage with an open door. I wear a mask and we maintain more than 6' social distance. Clients can review images on a computer monitor located near where they are posing.

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.
