I grew up on the south side of Chicago + some say I still carry the accent. Apparently when I order a "salad" or say I’m from "Chicago", I sound like a Super Fan. Nonetheless, I’m fond of my accent + I’m pleased to be connected to such an iconic city. Growing up in a working-class family built the fibers of what I am today. I’m still based in Chicago, conveniently located in the River North area.
When not traveling, I’m at home with my husband, daughter + our two dogs. I love all of them, equally. I find great comfort in cooking at home, but always enjoy a night out in heels. I love cleaning, it’s my therapy. I donate my free time to the local animal shelter down the block with photography services + foster dogs in need. As hard as it is not to get attached, it brings me great joy to have assisted in a second chance. I have a shoe addiction + love a good sale. I can’t walk past a dog on the street without saying hello, which I have passed that love of dogs along to my daughter. Since my husband introduced me to Korean food, I love it and there’s no turning back. We got married in Italy, but neither of us is Italian.

I am a filmaker, a photographer, writer, designer, and digital media educator. As a freelancer, I’ve produced video content and photographed for advertising, editorial, and documentary projects and I’ve edited, written and designed for fine art photography books, blogs, and magazines.
At the core, I am an explorer. I love to be going somewhere. And that includes while I’m creating work. Whether it’s carrying gear for weeks across the desert, or filming from a rope 1000 feet off the ground, snowshoeing in or snowboarding out, it’s the love of my work and these adventures that keeps me doing this. I love it when the job offers far flung adventure and I’m quick to pick up a challenge. Adaptable skills and a sense of the authentic image have been the core of imagery and I feel my ability to learn and adapt quickly is one of my greatest assets.

I am a third generation photographer living in Northwest Montana. I was born in Saudi Arabia as the son of an engineer and a teacher. We travelled extensively as a youth and as a result I have always been curious about the “other.” I remember being fascinated by my fathers cameras and never been allowed to touch them-probably a well founded rule. I give this credit for the start of my passion. As a child I struggled with learning differences and the method of education offered was lacking. This all changed though once I entered high school. At the age 14, it was finally my turn when the my high school photography teacher took me under her wing. I quickly became known as the kid with a camera always around his neck. I became very involved in our schools publications which led me to earning a BFA in photography. In college, I worked for several different newspapers and found my voice as a photographer. Looking back I have an impression of always being the best. I rode my ego through all of this time not anticipating what was to come.
I graduated at the crossroads of 9/11, the boom of digital photography and the drying of budgets. After a very fair rejection from the Dallas Morning News I fell into a major slum in life and with my work. I left everything behind and headed for the mountains. Four hundred dollars to my name, a backpack and a Holga camera, I started over. I photographed big adventures and my ever growing community of support. This life led me to a career as a wilderness therapy guide mostly in the desert Southwest and eventually as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
When I first looked back at this time in my life I felt regret. Regret for not being more resilient or dedicated to my art during those years. As if I lost precious time of potential and opportunity. Now as I turn toward my passion as more than a hobby again. I am able to see my path more clearly. Over the last two decades I have learning about and witnessed humanity in the intimacy of a therapeutic relationship. Now this understanding has allowed me to engage my subject matter with so much more vision and understanding. I now want to deeply understand and see what is truly in front of my lens. I now want to make art not because of what it mean to others but what it means to me.
Hey there. As you may have guessed, my name Lincoln Barbour and I am neither a president or someone who cuts hair. What I am is a professional photographer based out of Portland, OR specializing in well-crafted photography for home décor and architectural product brands.
What does “well-crafted” mean? Simply put, I create eye-candy for your brand that fits your specific needs, delivers on your creative vision, and arrives on budget and on time.
I specialize in a strong use of technical composition with an organic approach to light and color. My photography is clean but warm, controlled but casual, structured but nuanced. I take reality, blend in aspirational desire, and capture it all in a single moment. My shooting style is meticulously planned, yet comes across as effortless.
I don’t do this alone either. My scalable production team can meet your needs to deliver the best work possible for any budget. From 14-day catalog shoots with talent, stylists, catering, location scouting, and high end retouching to one simple day of architectural documentation, I will customize my services to help you achieve your desired results.
How do I do this? After 16 years of experience working with top brands, it’s safe to say I know exactly how to deliver a photo shoot.

Whether it is a runner focusing before an Olympic race, a refugee becoming the first of her community to receive a university degree or a climber looking up at the mountain he will measure himself against, emotions are the common thread, human and universal. Telling people stories with earnestness and honesty is what I strive to do every time I pick up a camera.
I am grateful that photography has given me so many opportunities to live unique experiences. There are too many to list exhaustively, but highlights include sailing an expedition yacht around Cape Horn, being invited to an Ethiopian coffee ceremony in Dadaab Refugee Camp, photographing Usain Bolt at the Olympics, skiing to the North Pole, naming three (small) mountains in Greenland, adventure racing through Tierra del Fuego, climbing on K2 and getting winched from a rescue helicopter at night . I can’t wait to see what happens next!
My work is currently divided more or less evenly between adventure and humanitarian/development projects. I currently live in Canmore, Alberta, but frequently travel back to my former home base of Chamonix, France.
JSquared Photography is a photo team in Los Angeles specializing in Celebrity/Portraiture, Entertainment and Commercial. photography.
We get a lot of questions about how a photography team works. It’s not too difficult to explain. Joe Magnani and Jared Schlachet have been working togther for over 10 years (and now you know why we went with JSquared rather than Schlachet and Magnani). You get two sets of eyes carefully watching the set and the monitor as images come in. You get two individuals who genuinely care about the quality of the photography we are handing to the client. Best of all you get two guys who are easy to work with and are willing to do anything for the shot. We are a team involved with all aspects of the production from pre to post.
Their work has appeared in numerous magazines including international magazines. We work with all level of clients from small business’ to entertainment networks. Some clients include Warner Bros, CW, Too Faced Cosmetics, Angeleno Magazine, Emmy Magazine, and many more.
JSquared Photography would like to continue to grow by working with new clients both local to LA and nationally.

In his own words:
I grew up in the rural high plains near the Pawnee National Grasslands. Yes, very rural. My mom worked at a portrait studio and my dad, amongst many things, was a professional leather artist and taught leather craft. So, I lived in a very creative and inspiring atmosphere. Growing up in a small town allowed me to raise chickens, rabbits, and pheasants and have many pets including toads, tarantulas, possums and a raccoon. My passion for food and agriculture runs deep. I appreciate where our food comes from and I think that has played an important role in my love of food and beverage photography. Today I live on the Studio property in a beautiful environmentally friendly ranch home. Other quirky things include a degree in Taxidermy and my 1967 Bentley.
I’m an on-location photographer and director. My aesthetic approach is driven by real, textural, compelling moments, whether shooting stills or motion.
I specialize in capturing authentic imagery depicting lifestyle, work and industrial scenes for corporate and agency clients and have years of commercial experience including large global image brand libraries, advertising campaigns, editorial and short form motion assets for web & broadcast, as well as one full length documentary.
