Based in Central Virginia, Lincoln Barbour is an award-winning commercial photographer who specializes in creating well crafted images with great light and astute composition. He works earnestly to help creators and makers capture the quality of their works in still pictures. His 16 years of photography experience has led to a deep knowledge of the art of image making, a large network of production resources, and an unwavering desire to take on any assignment with enthusiasm.

Personally, he’s a very kind humble person, loyal, and loves to laugh. Producers that work with Lincoln often say he’s “great with clients.” On set, he’s very chill, yet keeps everyone motivated with the task at hand and stays mindful of what’s coming next. Most importantly, he’s a great collaborator and works unceasingly with his clients to create the photographs they see in their mind’s eye.

Lincoln has photographed for top brands like Hunter Douglas, Oreck, UBS, and Jeld-Wen working with agencies like CMD, Roundhoue, and Olson. Lincoln has also shot for some of the biggest names in architecture and design, such as DLR Group, Boora, Mahlum, SRG Partnership Inc, as well as famed Portland interior designers Jessica Helgerson and Andee Hess of Osmose. Lincoln’s editorial credits include Elle Decor, Dwell, Better Homes & Gardens, Martha Stewart Living, Country Living, Bon Appétit, and Portland Monthly as well as international magazines including Spaces (UK), 20 Private Wohnträume (Germany), Home Beautiful (Australia), and Interiors (South Korea). Lincoln’s work has also been published in a number of books from Taunton Press as well as in Design*Sponge at Home (Artisan, 2011).

Off the clock, he spends his time with wife Lauren, their children Odin and Teagan, and a power trio of cats named Alice, Nora, and Scout. It’s lot of mouths to feed 😉 He loves to cook almost as much as a good hike. Always down for games of any type, he is especially excited to play pinball and fantasy football.

“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.”
