You may need a headshot for Linkedin, Facebook or your company website. It is said that there is no second chance to make a first impression. When the very first impression a prospective client has is your photo, you need a great headshot.
Wedding and Engagement Session Photographers
For over 15 years, couples have entrusted us to tell the story of one of the most important days of their lives. We are known for our relaxed, fun and creative style. Our couples love how we capture the key highlights and the heartwarming, candid moments that really tell and complete the story.
You are with your photographers most of your wedding day, so you should hire someone who understands you and can add to the experience. We know it’s your wedding day, not a long portrait session. You are there to be with your family and friends celebrating a momentous occasion.
If you hire us, we will make the day easy for you and fun. We will take the time find out what’s important to you and tell the story of your day from the getting ready, family portraits, ceremony, reception and all the unique special moments in between.
An Engagement session is a great way for you to get to know your photographer and we recommend them highly. You'll get to know us and you will also see comfortable we'll make you feel. We photograph an engagement session for almost all our wedding couples. Location Engagement Sessions are included in our Collections, and sometimes are added to our "Wedding Day Hourly Coverage Only" services. Engagement session photographs are great for making guest sign in books, save the date cards, canvasses and gift prints. We will also have a wardrobe consultation with you so that your images will be timeless.
Small Weddings and Elopements
We offer a special hourly coverage rate for wedding parties and guests of 50 persons or less that take place Monday through Thursday at one location, with a 2 hour minimum and maximum of 5.
These coverages are designed for couples who need a photographer for a short time, and usually are not interested in an album right away.
Most of our Family Portrait Clients are former wedding Clients or their extended families.
Family portraits are usually photographed environmentally, at a beautiful park or beach location, or at our Client's home. We can also photograph small family groups in our studio for a more formal look.
We always have a wardrobe and makeup consultation with our family portrait clients, in person or on the phone, as we set up the session and pick the location. It's nice to have this consultation in person because we can show our Clients different examples of family groups, often at the location where we will photograph their family.
The right wardrobe and makeup make a very big difference in the final product. Many Clients text us photos of the outfits they plan to wear so we can offer suggestions. We can arrange for a makeup artist if requested.
When working with a large family, we first photograph the largest group, and then as may subgroups as our Clients like, including individuals. We always try to work with the little ones as soon as possible, because they sometimes have a short attention span.
We take a little time to make everyone comfortable with us and work patiently but efficiently so that everyone looks relaxed and at their best.
After the session, we invite our Clients to come to our studio to choose the images they want to purchase as fully retouched and custom printed wall canvases, framed photographs and gift prints. We also offer sessions that include the edited digital files.
Barnet Photography is very proud to have a very wide range pf Product Photography Clients. We photograph their products at our studio in Pasadena, or at their location, depending on several factors like size of the items, the number of items to be photographed, the need for Client's staff to make decisions during the session and sometimes we go on location because changes need to be made or products combined together in the same image with the help of technicians.
Most of our Clients manufacture cosmetics, clothing, specialized gift items, electronics, safety personal gear, medical equipment and other small to medium items that need studio photography. We offer studio retouching and "clipping" services, and we're always happy to work with art directors and graphic designers or with small manufacturers that are doing everything themselves and can use a little extra help beyond just the images for their brochures or websites.
Throughout my photojournalistic career I photographed a great deal of professional sports, including NFL and NBA action, but my favorite sport to photograph has always been Auto Racing. Oddly enough, other than photographing sports cars at Auto Shows, my first assignment in Motorsports was covering Formula 1 Racing and related events including candid driver portraits during several years of the Long Beach Grand Prix F1 races. I truly believe that every discipline, or specialty, in Photography makes you a better photographer in all other types of photography. This could not be more true than in sports, especially Automotive Photography.
We are associated with the Porsche Club of America, so most of the racing events we cover are Porsche Club Racing. We create beautiful metal print "Garage Art" for Clients that own car collections and also photograph our Clients cars on track during Auto Cross events and door to door racing.
