Facility photographer near Macon, GA

Would it benefit your business if potential customers knew more about what they would see when they come to visit?


     You’ve probably spent a great deal of time and MONEY to make your business attractive and inviting for your customers.  The decor, furnishings, lighting and spaciousness of your facility all contribute to creating a setting that enhances the customer experience.  Whether your business is a car dealership, restaurant, hotel lobby, funeral home, etc., the visual presentation of your facility will entice new customers to come visit!


Here’s some advice from the Small Business Admin:     6 benefits of using professional photography in your small business.


     I use a combination of still photography, 360 panoramas and video slideshows to give viewers an inside look at your facility.

Event photographer near Macon, GA


It’s tempting to ask one of your employees to “grab some photos” at your next
company event; but SHOULD you?

     So, your company is planning a special event.  This is going to be expensive:  decorations, venue rental, catering, travel arrangements for guest speakers, etc.  How do you want to document these festivities?  Hiring a professional event photographer offers many advantages!


Take a look at this article:    4 reasons to hire an event photographer


     1)  A professional photography team can serve multiple functions at your event:  document the festivities AND set up a headshot station for your executives, for example.

     2)  A professional will bring an assortment of lenses giving a different “feel” to the photos.  There is nothing more boring than seeing an entire event captured through nothing more than a 50mm lens.

     3)   The delivered photos will be retouched (removal of distracting elements, noise reduction, tonal and color corrections) and ready for your immediate use.

Images of BlueTick Mercantile by Forsyth, Ga commercial photographer

Any new business needs high quality photographs as the foundation of their marketing campaign. Bluetick Mercantile invited Jim Barber, a Forsyth, Ga commercial photographer, to create the images that they will need. This new facility is an upscale bakery specializing in breads, pastries, cookies and muffins.  I haven’t tried everything on their extensive menu, but, what I have indulged in has been very tasty.  The decor is very rustic with metal chairs and handmade, laminated wood slat tables as well as counter service. The item that caught my eye immediately is their lighting.  All their lighting fixtures have very unique light bulbs.  The clear light bulbs have very decorative filaments that are quite eye catching.

Word about this new restaurant on the square is spreading quickly.  When I first arrived for the photo shoot at 1:30 pm, the lunch time crowd was still pretty thick.  I came back later in the afternoon to capture these images.

Hilton Head Hotel Photographer

Jim Barber is a hotel photographer based in Forsyth, GA 

I had a great time photographing this hotel one sunny day last month.  The owner was extremely pleased to have new images for the website.  The project involved photographing 4 different room types, the lobby, vending area, fitness area, breakfast and pool areas as well as exterior shots.  I was on site from 5pm til 8am.  Being on site for 15 hours allows me to shoot the exterior shots at sunset, twilight and sunrise.  It also allows me to photograph the public areas without interferring with hotel operations.  Hotel managers tell me that very few hotel photographers invest this much time in doing their photography.  The final package of files that I delivered to the facility contained over 20 images.  Here's a sample of the images.
