rb headshot final by Randy Barnes


For over 15 years I have been photographing adventure, sports, portraits, travel, culture and landscapes around the world for a diverse group of international advertising and editorial clients. My work has taken me throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Behind the lens, I am always looking to capture the unique angle, the magic light, the intimate perspective and the telling moment. Knowing Southwest Colorado is my home, I live in the San Juan mountains just outside Telluride with my wife, our son and our identical twin daughters.

My work has been published in Esquire, National Geographic Adventure, Backpacker, Climbing, Skiing, Powder, Rock & Ice, Bike, Trail Runner, Patagonia, Marmot, Denver Post, Rocky Mt. News, Organic Weddings and Rocky Mountain Bride to name a few. My photography is also represented by Aurora Images and Telluride Stock.

I am also owner of Alpine Wedding Photography which specializes in destination wedding photography. Please take a moment to view our work at www.alpineweddingphotography.com

My commitment to excellence and my dedication to provide unique images is at the forefront of my photography, quickly followed with a 'go with the flow, work hard and make it happen' attitude. Whether you need stock photography or an assignment shoot, I look forward to hearing from you. Best, Randy
