We're not big and flashy. We're small and great.
We might not be the biggest name in town, but that's okay. Our clients know who we are: dedicated professionals with a deep passion for photography and video production that makes our work—as well as the experience of working with us—truly exceptional. We really do love what we do, and we bring that energy to every new assignment. It may be your own personal project, but it's personal for us too.
We speak two languages: corporate and creative.
When Ron Barlow started Barlow Productions in 1966 as a photography studio specializing in advertising and commercial photography for St. Louis businesses, the young photographer had no idea just how successful his approach would be. Clients responded to his obvious talent, his genial wit, and his desire to bend over backwards to deliver exactly what his clients needed. Ron is still actively involved, but his son Patrick—having grown up assisting his father—has run the company for nearly 20 years. Having joined the team in 2000, Bill Sawalich heads up our photo department and brings a lifelong love of photography to the studio every day. When you pick up the phone and call, you'll talk to one of us every time. That's how we ensure that each new project lives up to our high standards and yours.
It's not about where we've been. It's about where we're going.
Anybody can buy a camera, and almost anyone can learn to use it. Not convinced? Google "St. Louis Photographer" and "St. Louis Video Production" for a look at how many folks are new additions to our crowded marketplace. It's not everyday that you find dedicated photographers and video production professionals with our decades of experience both behind the camera and in every other phase of production as well. You can't buy experience, and nobody's born with expertise. We've earned our reputation and built our portfolio through years of focused effort. We've cultivated a loyal client base because we don't worry about being the biggest, or the flashiest, or garnering the most virtual "likes." We rock at photography and video production, and we work incredibly hard for our customers. Call us today and we'll do our best to prove it to you.
