Photographing Antelope Canyon.

Macon commercial photographer photographs Antelope Canyon, Az


This was a bucket list project for Jim Barber, a Macon commercial and family photographer.


My wife and I took a guided bus tour of Arizona/ Utah a couple of years ago but the itinerary didn’t include Antelope Canyon.  The opportunity arose, this year, for me to return to Arizona with my photographer friend, Johnny Mullis (JOMiii Gallery in Macon).  We had 4 days of beautiful weather and took several side trips on our way to the canyon.  The following presentation is slow to load but worth the wait.  Once it loads, use the scroll bar on the right margin to scroll down for photos and comments.  Enjoy !

Macon, GA Event photographer

Jim Barber is an Event Photographer in Macon, GA

Jim Barber, owner of Impressive Images Photography, provides event photography services throughout the middle GA area.


Just last week, I was invited to attend the Middle Georgia Association of Realtors (MGAR) annual awards luncheon at Idle Hour Country Club.  Almost 200 of Macon, GAs top realtors attended the event.  My wife and I set up a small studio in the front corner of the ballroom and invited award winners to have a complimentary portrait done with their awards.  The service was well received and appreciated.  I’ve attached some photos of the festivities.

Many thanks to MGAR for the invitation.

Forsyth, GA commercial photographer welcomes new business.

Jim Barber, a Forsyth, GA commercial photographer, recently created some promotional images for a new business in town.

Bluetick Mercantile is a new business in Forsyth.


Images of BlueTick Mercantile by Forsyth, Ga commercial photographer

Any new business needs high quality photographs as the foundation of their marketing campaign. Bluetick Mercantile invited Jim Barber, a Forsyth, Ga commercial photographer, to create the images that they will need. This new facility is an upscale bakery specializing in breads, pastries, cookies and muffins.  I haven’t tried everything on their extensive menu, but, what I have indulged in has been very tasty.  The decor is very rustic with metal chairs and handmade, laminated wood slat tables as well as counter service. The item that caught my eye immediately is their lighting.  All their lighting fixtures have very unique light bulbs.  The clear light bulbs have very decorative filaments that are quite eye catching.

Word about this new restaurant on the square is spreading quickly.  When I first arrived for the photo shoot at 1:30 pm, the lunch time crowd was still pretty thick.  I came back later in the afternoon to capture these images.

Real Estate Photographer in Macon, Ga

Macon, GA

Commercial Photographer, Jim Barber, now offers Real Estate Photography
services in Macon, GA.

Becoming a Real Estate Photographer is an accomplishment Jim Barber has recently obtained.  In this day and age where anyone who “owns a camera” can claim to be a professional photographer, the world of real estate photography requires very specific equipment and expert computer skills.  Jim has amassed that equipment and honed those computer skills during his 20 year career as a professional photographer.

To introduce this new service to the community, Jim has designed and distributed two new postcards:

Novice photographers, even agents themselves, often use point and shoot cameras or, worse, their cell phones to take the pictures that they will use to market YOUR home.  I use a DSLR with a 16 mm lens, a tripod and flash equipment.  See the comparison below:

Doesn’t the room look more spacious with the right equipment ?

         The photos I produce for you will make your home look more appealing to buyers!

Professional Real Estate photography makes a difference in Macon, Ga


Before hiring any realtor, make sure they agree to have a professional photographer create the photos that will be used on the MLS listing.  It’s that important !
