Well-crafted photography

Architectural Photography by Lincoln Barbour

Quick question: Have you ever wondered how some architecture and interior design firms are always winning design awards?

It seems they also have a knack of winning new business with practically no effort. When it comes to your own portfolio, is your work regularly published in magazines (or gone viral) because the photography was so good?

Hi, I’m Lincoln Barbour and I’d love to help you.

I’m a commercial photographer specializing in well-crafted photography of architecture and interior design. What does well-crafted mean? Simply put, I create beautiful photography for your firm that is tailored to fit your needs, captures your creative vision, and fits your budget.

My photography will showcase your firm’s talents and capabilities and help you get more clients, better projects, and win awards. Plus, my industry connections to architecture and design magazines, architectural product brands, blogs, and influencers will give you a head start in promoting your project.

My Approach

I specialize in a strong use of technical composition with an organic approach to light and color. My photography is clean but warm, controlled but casual, structured but nuanced. I take reality, add in some aspirational desire, and then capture it all into a single moment. My shooting style is well planned and comes across as effortless.

I don’t do this alone either. My scalable production team can meet your needs to deliver the best work possible to fit any budget. From 14-day catalog shoots with talent, stylists, catering, location scouting, and high end retouching; to a simple day of architectural documentation, I can customize my services to help you achieve the results you want.

How do I do this? After 16 years of experience working with top brands like Hunter Douglas, Rejuvenation, UBS, Prometheus Real Estate Group; top architecture and design firms like DLR Group, SRG, VMDO, Jessica Helgerson Interior Design; and world class magazines like Better Homes & Gardens, Dwell, Country Living, and Luxe; I know exactly how to deliver a photo shoot.

When you become a client of mine, you are taken care of from start to finish.

Before we shoot, my team and I will work closely with you to make sure all the boxes are checked, i’s are dotted, t’s are crossed, and your shoot will be executed as planned.

During the shoot, you will be able to review everything we shoot from a mobile digital workstation. There will be no surprises because you can review and approve every shot in real time.

After the shoot, you can rest easy because the assets we captured are backed up 3 times: one to card, one to hard drive, and one to cloud. Yes, cloud backups of all media I create for life. Your proofs will be delivered in an online gallery within 5 business days or sooner. Your final selects will be retouched by my professional digital artists to create flawless high-resolution files ready for print, web, social, and any other application you need.

Plus, I stand by my work and guarantee your satisfaction or you get your money back, production fees and all. What other photographer you’ve worked with does that?

Here are just a few of the many clients who’ve entrusted me over the past 16 years to create their photography


“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.”
Mary Beth Lineberry – VMDO Architects

“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. 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.”
Stéphanie Versin – Prometheus Real Estate Group
