You know how when you’re walking down the isle of a grocery store and you see on a bag of potato chips “new look, same great taste”? Well this is pretty much the same thing, minus the taste, probably a bad metaphor… but you get the idea.
I wanted to do something fresh, my brand was getting dull, it was my name but it didn’t say anything about me, I didn’t have an identity. Now I do. The Bearded Lensman. With this, my logo will change, my website will change, my brand will change, but my photos and the way I work will continue to stay at the highest quality possible and my desire to make sure each client is completely satisfied with their investment will always be my top priority.
I love what I do and I’ve been doing it professionally for 7 years now. One of my favorite things about this job is getting to feel like I grow with my clients. Often I start off with a couple before they are even married, then I get to be a part of the biggest moments of their lives, their wedding, their newborns and being with their family as it grows; having that trust is such a big deal to me and I never take it for granted.
With every shoot, whether it’s a wedding or a band or even if you want me to take pictures of your new car that you wanna show off on Facebook, I’ll make sure that you are handled with the individual treatment that you deserve. I don’t go looking for new photos on Pinterest to copy, I’ll ask you questions to learn more about you and what you are looking for. I want to take photos that capture the moment and shout out you!
My name is Jonathan O’Brien, and I am The Bearded Lensman.
