About
Mission
At Photo Authentic, we want to help 10,000 photographers make $100,000 or more in profit by January 1, 2024, because every creative deserves to make a great living doing the work they love.
Our Story
At Photo Authentic, we know many photographers never learned business skills before starting out their careers. If they did have some training, it was very surface level and it did not give them a strong foundation to build a long-lasting career. They are struggling to gain traction and make professional photography a 6-figure income-generating business.

When photographers join Photo Authentic, they are given a framework to success called "Path to Pro". They are also coached by veteran photographer Lincoln Barbour to accomplish their goals and achieve the level of success they desire.

Members of Photo Authentic become the new breed of modern commercial photographers and will get more clients, make more money, and shoot the work they love.

About Lincoln Barbour
Lincoln Barbour is an award-winning photographer of architecture and architectural products. His approach to photography focuses on how design relates to human interaction. He has an uncanny ability to balance highly technical shots with moments of real life. This style of photography has earned him top-notch clients from around the world.

Since beginning his professional photography career in 2002, Lincoln has photographed for top brands like Hunter Douglas, Panasonic, Nike, UBS, and Jeld-Wen working with agencies like CMD, Egg, and Olson. Barbour has also shot for some of the biggest names in architecture and design, such as DLR Group, Boora, Mahlum, SRG Partnership Inc, as well as famed Portland interior designers Jessica Helgerson and Andee Hess of Osmose. Lincoln's editorial credits include Elle Decor, Dwell, Better Homes & Gardens, Martha Stewart Living, Country Living, Bon Appétit, and Portland Monthly as well as international magazines including Spaces (UK), 20 Private Wohnträume (Germany), Home Beautiful (Australia), and Interiors (South Korea). Lincoln's work has also been published in a number of books from Taunton Press as well as in Design*Sponge at Home (Artisan, 2011).


When not making beautiful images of the built world around him, Portland, OR based Barbour spends his days with his wife Lauren, their children Odin and Teagan, and their three crazy cats. Lincoln is a novice chef, an outdoor enthusiast, a pinball lover, and has a silly offbeat sense of humor.
