Welcome, I am Barry Salmons. I am so glad you stopped by to check out my website. I have been married 24 years to my wonderful bride, Amy, and we have two boys, Alex and Josh, both who are bio-chemistry majors in college. Being semi-empty nesters, we cherish the family moments we have together. Most Summers we make it a priority to check-out of the Central Ohio area and find a beach to relax on, usually at our favorite beach in Siesta Key, FL. (Hint: it's a great place for a destination Senior session!)
Professionally, I spent nearly 30 years in large corporate marketing departments where I focused on digital marketing strategy and execution. Last Summer, I left the corporate life behind to follow my life-long passion in photography. I mean, after all, I had been working on perfecting the photography craft for over 20 years. And, capturing these perfect moments in time really was my life long passion.
In February 2020, I attend my first national photography conference with nearly 400 of the nation's best senior photographers. Reluctantly, I entered a photo competition, knowing there would be over 550 entries competing for top awards. My goal was to learn from others and learn how to improve my work. Much to my surprise, I received the top award for new photographers. I was awarded 2020 Breakout Photographer of the year! While the award is a nice confirmation of my work, my goal for each client is to create a memorable experience that will be fun, exciting and well worth your time and investment.
I have a never-ending desire to get “that perfect portrait” to hang on your wall. This is much more than taking good pictures, but it’s truly about making artwork and treasuring this moment in time, forever. For more than 20 years, I have studied this craft, invested heavily in time and resources, perfected my digital editing techniques, and I own the best of the best equipment…just so I can make amazing portraits that grow more valuable to you over time.
Based out of Hilliard, Ohio, I specialize in senior photography, family photography, and real estate photography in the greater Columbus, Ohio area, including Hilliard, Dublin, Worthington, and Westerville, Ohio.
I would love to have the opportunity to work with you!
