Specializing in headshot and portraiture photography, Gary Barragan’s love for the art is a strong driving force in his passion which in return has helped propel him as a source of inspiration and as an accomplished photographer in Louisville KY. He feels that with every job, it should not be work but a fun and memorable experience, an experience that tells a story through the art of image making. His editorial infused style and attention to detail has earned him a reputable name among his clients which range from brides and families to actors and doctors.

Working professionally since 2012, his photography has been featured in publications such as Forbes, Extol Magazine, Dark Beauty Magazine, BangStyle.com, Voice Tribune and The Voice of Louisville. A few of his recent highlights include working with Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantsev, photographing the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft‘s 2017 KMAC Couture campaign and most recently, donating his time and talents as the Production Photographer for the upcoming fan made film, Star Wars Hand of the Empire, benefiting Norton’s Children’s Hospital.

When Gary is not photographing or writing about himself in third person, he enjoys patio coffee dates with his wife and zombie video game nights with son. He also is addicted to, wait, I mean an avid fan of Star Wars.
