For decades, Frank Barnett Photography has been providing high quality images that have been reproduced everywhere from a downtown Portland billboard to annual reports, brochures, books and periodicals, from Portrait of Portland to The Washington Post. His specialties include food and beverage photography, including craft brewed beer, wine and coffee. Many magazines have featured his images on their covers and in articles. Both non-profit and corporate entities have relied on his services – from the Oregon Wine Board, the Oregon and Washington Restaurant Associations and the Museum of New Mexico Foundation to Bethel Heights Vineyards, the Eyrie Vineyards, Miles Fiberglass & Composites, Fujitsu America and Doneth & Sturdivant Wealth Advisors.
Since their collaboration began, Frank Barnett and Martha Solomon have photographed and authored many feature articles. They have also photographed and written four books in as many years and picked up a significant award along the way. In 2017, Photography in My Bones – Half a Century of Images by Frank Barnett was awarded the Independent Publishers Silver Medal in Photography. An earlier title, All American Toy Co. – All American Toys for All American Boys, will be an exhibit at the Oregon Historical Society Museum, curated by the couple and scheduled to open in September, 2019.

In 1995, just four years after the World Wide Web became publicly available and was still a "new thing," Sam Karp, Executive Officer of HandsNet, a Community News and Information nonprofit, asked us to design the graphic look for the HandsNet website. Here's what Sam had to say:
"Their work was not only graphically exciting, their enthusiasm and determination helped create a very functional and accessible website as well. Incidentally, the site has won two awards for its design, organization and content."
When Frank Barnett's video production company met with Irene Bernards, Tourism Manager & Assistant Director of the Salem Convention & Visitors Association (now Travel Salem), they discussed the feasibility of producing a tourism and development video for the city of Salem, Marion and Polk counties. As a result of that video, Sly Dog Productions was honored as SCVA's "Business Member of the Year." Ms. Bernards later wrote:
"Frank's enthusiasm for a project is contagious and he is a true professional. He sees a project through to the end, keeps his word and has a tremendous work ethic."
For Frank's video production company's website, he developed both the content and design – complete with video clips from his many corporate clients.
Western Culinary Institute, which later changed its name to Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, trained prospective chefs for more than three decades in Portland, Oregon. The school turned out some of the better talent that restaurant-goers are still enjoying today in the Pacific Northwest. When the school discovered Frank Barnett's dramatic food photography, he was hired to provide images for their catalogue.
One of the great challenges of photographing things that move, whether it’s a whirling dancer at a Native American powwow, a cowboy astride a two thousand pound Brahma bull or a jumbo jet making a low approach at the end of a runway at LAX, is capturing that dynamic, split-second moment and freezing it in time.
