Hey there, I'm Lincoln Barbour! While I'm not a former president nor a person who cuts hair, I do tell stories for businesses and magazines through photography.
As a seasoned commercial photographer based in Virginia, I specialize in well-crafted photography of architecture, interior design, décor products, and hospitality. When I say "well-crafted," I'm talking about delivering visual eye candy tailored to your brand's unique needs – on budget and on time.
My approach melds technical precision with an organic touch, producing photos that are clean but warm, controlled but casual, and structured but nuanced.
Drawing from over two decades of experience as a commercial photographer, I blend reality with aspiration to encapsulate perfect moments. And while my shooting style is rigorously planned, it radiates an effortless charm.
I'm grateful to work alongside a scalable production team, ensuring we can adjust to any project's scale or budget. From extensive catalog shoots that require an entire crew and high-end retouching to a single day of pure architectural captures, I'm dedicated to translating your vision into stunning photographs.
Having helped global brands, renowned architectural firms, and prominent publications (check out the client list below), I don't just believe—I know I can elevate your company's vision with impeccable photography.
Ready to see the difference? Reach out today, and let's create something exceptional together.
Partial Client List
Senior Director Hunter Douglas Corporate Marketing
"When it comes to confidence, competence, talent and keen insight, Lincoln Barbour is the most outstanding photographer I have had the pleasure to work with over my many years in brand management and product photography. Lincoln has the ability to understand the essence of a brand and capture it through the lens of his camera. He carefully and completely thinks through each photography project. He takes time to understand the objective of each shot in order to produce photography that conveys the mood and feel that a product brings to the brand.
Experienced and highly capable, Lincoln is incredibly collaborative and inventive. He understands how light can bring alive subtle textures and soft hues. The angles Lincoln selects are indicative of the exceptional perspective he possesses. His photography has graced book covers, national ads and has been used throughout branded collateral to ignite consumer desire and, in turn, fuel sales success.
Lincoln is also a wonderful individual who forges deep and sincere relationships. He builds loyalty and trust with his clients. His easy going nature and relaxed style are among some of his best assets. A strong work ethic, and a diligence to consistently deliver, make Lincoln a rare and significant talent."
“A treat to work with, Lincoln is a talented photographer with an impressive portfolio of architectural, lifestyle, and hospitality images to his name. I have worked with him on over a dozen architectural shoots in Virginia and am consistently impressed with his artistry, efficiency, and affableness. He works well with a variety of audiences and makes people feel incorporated and comfortable in the environment he is capturing, not an easy feat for an architectural photographer. I can’t recommend Lincoln enough as a talented photographer and thoughtful collaborator.”
Prometheus Real Estate Group
Since 2014 I had the pleasure to work with Lincoln Barbour and his production team to carry out an annual week long photo shoot to cover our new developments in luxury real estate. Lincoln is truly an outstanding photographer (and wonderful person) with almost a mystical eye and ability to capture the magical moment that would morph a scene and a space into a beautiful expression: his photographs are the result of his ability to highlight what is more remarkable eliminating what is superfluous. Lincoln’s talents resided in quickly understanding our product, customers, challenges and goals. His photographs capture the intent of the design and the spirit of the architecture beautifully.
His imagery has strengthened our brand beautifully and set Prometheus far ahead of its competition. He and his team are among the very best: patient, meticulous, kind and committed to get a beautiful job done each time. I recommend and would work with Lincoln again without any question.
TTI Floorcare - Oreck
“As an art director, I have had the pleasure of working with Lincoln on multiple commercial shoots. Leading up to shoots, Lincoln is responsive and collaborative, planning ahead for maximum efficiency.
On shoot days, Lincoln’s positive and relaxed demeanor makes working through a long shot list a painless process. His ability to change gears on-the-fly to accommodate for last minute changes is crucial. He is able to take a step back from shooting and quickly explore alternative solutions to meet the needs of his client. He also makes post-production a breeze, always delivering beautiful final images well within the deadline.
All that being said, Lincoln is also just a great guy, and I always enjoy working with him.”
"As the owner of Mosaik Design & Remodeling I highly recommend Lincoln Barbour Studio. I have been using Lincoln as our main photographer for residential remodeling projects for many years. He is super talented, professional and friendly. I can't recommend him enough! We have used others in the past and it is just not the same experience. The photos are always top notch-- he really is an expert in his field."
