Lincoln Barbour Studio is the culmination of an 18-year journey from web design to architectural photography and media.
Back in 2002, owner Lincoln Barbour was ready to be done with the web design industry where he had been serving as Creative Director at Genesis Studios, a small web design agency in Charlottesville, VA. The daily grind of design, code, redesign, more code, more redesigns (and on and on) coupled with the first Dot Com crash of the early 2000s, led Lincoln to pursue his high school passion for photography.
He left his salaried position and began working as a $10/hr photo assistant and studio manager to the late architectural photographer, Philip Beaurline. There he helped with everything from loading film into view cameras, to drum scanning, to large format printing, and final delivery of work to clients. Philip was a relentless perfectionist and a dedicated champion for his clients. Lincoln picked up these quality character traits and they have been the bedrock of his photography career ever since.
In 2005, Lincoln moved from Charlottesville, VA to Portland, OR and began his photography career in earnest. Within a few months of arriving, Lincoln began shooting for Portland Monthly Magazine and a variety of local architecture and interior design firms such as Mahlum and Jessica Helgerson Interior Design. By 2008, Lincoln’s photography had graced covers of many national magazines (ReadyMade, Luxe, Country Living), gone viral in the architecture blog world, used in dozens of interior design books, and he was hired to shoot for large ad campaigns for global décor brands like Hunter Douglas and Kate Spade.
Most proudly, Lincoln’s photography was helping architecture firms win prestigious design awards which led to new business opportunities for the firms. Firms that worked with Lincoln saw their business grow exponentially by using his photography.
