Rick Bern Photography



For several years now, Rick Bern Photography has been rated #1 on both Google and Yelp in MA.

In the end, I suspect every portrait photographer loves working with people and is motivated to help create/preserve memories. I'm a former social worker and the same rings true with me. I love seeing clients years who become tearful talking about portraits on their walls we shot years ago when their kids were young. It's a passion, a responsibility, a craft - and always an opportunity to create something new.

Largely self-taught with a decade of personal guidance from some of the best photographers shooting in the US today.  I opened a Needham studio about 6 years ago where the majority of executive headshots and family portraits are taken.

It's an a la carte system, happy to share a pdf with complete information upon request.

I've had a camera with me since I was a little kid.  It wasn't until my wife challenged me that Rick Bern Photography was officially born.

As a generalist I've been lucky to have a client base that keeps me doing something different every day.  I've captured everyone from actors to athletes, executives to entreprenuers, small start-ups to massive Fortune 500 companies.  We also have a team that provides photography for weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs all over New England.  For a more complete scope, please visit our website galleries. 

Shot a wedding last month of a couple who met during jury duty.  The judge presided over the wedding.  That was a fun night.

Read as many online review sites as you can to be sure a vendor can provide you with what you need.  Do your homework before calling a potential vendor to be sure you're not wasting your time.

Most people don't really know what they want, but they may know what they like/dislike if they saw it.  That's why looking at a website is probably the best first step to hiring a photographer.  It's not the only step, but it's a beginning.  I have clients who let me "do my thing" while I have others who email me screenshots of poses and setups they love.  I'm good either way.  To me, it's all a chance to create and collaborate on a project - something I love to do!
