In our St. Louis studio and on location throughout the midwest, Barlow’s chief photographer Bill Sawalich and his team bring boundless enthusiasm and creative know-how to every assignment—whether it’s a large-scale advertising shoot or a low-impact location portrait for a corporate marketing department. Our passion and expertise are evident in every image we produce, and we work hard to be easy to work with.

With each new assignment, no matter if the client is a worldwide agency or a local non-profit, we strive to further the Barlow traditions of creative problem solving, technical precision and unsurpassed professionalism to produce photographs our clients are eager to share.
