Why invest in a photography experience with Burnett Photography?  

1. Burnett Photography is where complacency and mediocrity come to DIE.

I’m not talking about the usual, convenient snapshots that anyone can get with a decent camera or iPhone app!

I’m talking about having such a passion for beautiful photography that we bust our asses to carry a state of the art lighting system up mountains, through crowds, on lakes, and into the field so you are bathed in incredible light like a model would be in a studio.

I’m not talking about having you stand lamely in front of a nice background and saying “cheese!”  We’ll work with you to get you feeling relaxed and at ease so you enjoy your experience and let us guide in posing so you look like a rock star.

If you think you will feel awkward in front of a camera, be at ease.  We know all about posing and stagecraft to give you the instructions you need to feel sexy and confident.  When you see what you look like in our pictures you’ll be blown away!


2. I’m a freaking MAGICIAN when it comes to editing!

I’ll spend hours editing your pictures until they are perfect— finessing the details out of clouds and mountains, removing crowds of tourists from your images so you look like you were the only ones there, airbrushing away blemishes and tummy tucking to your tastes.

My family will hate me for ignoring them but I’ll put the time in for YOU.

3. Expertise.

We will take you to special places you wouldn’t find on your own. We know where to go to avoid crowds,  when to be on location for the best light possible and what to do should the weather be bad. We have the expertise and equipment to create unique pictures in any situation, any kind of weather. Anywhere.

4. Peace of Mind!

We consistently win international awards.
