I am in the process of launching a boutique marketing and communications agency with my business partner, and we realized we needed new headshots that better reflect who we are now that we’ve left the corporate world to be small business owners.
We reached out to photographer Noah Berg, who happens to be a new Stapleton resident, to set up time to take some photos of us, as well as photograph samples of our work for our new website that’s in the works.
It was a windy day, so we opted to meet Noah at his studio share space on Washington Street. The studio had great light and lots of options for different looks, and even space for family or baby photos.
Although neither one of us enjoy being in front of the camera (so much of our work requires us to be behind one or art directing) Noah made us feel comfortable with his easy-going approach.
When we got our photos back, we were thrilled with their quality and that we were able to find several favorites of each of us. I enjoyed the experience so much that I hired Noah to take my family photos. He was able to keep the attention of my 8 year old and my wiggly 3 year old and capture some really nice candid and posed shots that will surely thrill the grandparents.
Noah established Walnut Street Photography three years ago and offers a wide variety of photography services including family, wedding, senior, headshots, product and commercial. He also teaches private classes for small business owners who use photography on social media for marketing, as well as classes on the basics of photography.
Noah and his wife, Leat, run the business together. He handles the creative side while she takes care of the accounting and general marketing. The couple decided to trade downtown living for the more family-friendly vibe of Stapleton after their first child, Ella, was born 6 months ago.
“I love my job,” he says. “It’s fun and interesting, I never go to work at the same place and the Stapleton families and professionals I have worked with have been great.”
To check out his work, visit WalnutStreetPhotography.com. Noah is currently adding a business division of his company, so expect to see more commercial examples on the site soon.
As an introduction to the neighborhood, Noah is offering family photos and headshots for $150 until the end of 2016 (more than a 50 percent discount!). This includes up to one hour of photography and all high-resolution images. If you would like your photos taken in the studio space, it will be an additional $50 fee.
