Sarah Barnes Photography
Hello, I am Sarah Barnes, a photographer based in Cardiff, Wales. Here you will discover a selection of work from my portfolio, news on my latest projects and musings on photography and life.
I have a First Class Honours degree in Photographic Practice and have been working as a freelance photographer since 2010, covering a variety of commercial commissions as well as my personal project work for exhibitions. I am currently studying for a Masters degree in Documentary Photography, and continuing in further education as a teacher and photography technician.
In addition to a photography service, I also offer beginners photography classes on a 1:1 or group basis, please get in touch if you are struggling to know your ISO from your aperture. You may simply wish to capture better family portraits or a small business owner who needs to learn to take product images. Whatever your need please get in touch to discuss how my bespoke photography classes can help you.
If you have any questions or would like a quote please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Thanks for visiting.

What do my clients say about me?
When I got home I was able to sit down with Sue and go through the book. We both think it’s fantastic. You have done a wonderful job with all the books and it will be a great legacy to leave the children. Thanks for your skill and patience in putting these books together.
I commissioned Sarah Barnes to create a photograph album for my husbands 60th birthday. I handed over a massive box of photographs and although we talked briefly about what I wanted, I pretty much left it to their discretion. The result was amazing. Words can’t describe how wonderful it was. Each page - from his baby photos to the birth of his first grandchild – was designed to perfection. Every photo was perfect for each situation and we were reminded of some fantastic memories. I was asked if I could send an email to family and friends to request birthday messages. It made the book that little bit extra special and personal. I can highly recommend Sarah to be trusted with your photographs. The result speaks for itself. Jennifer Llewellyn - Cardiff
Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding book, we are absolutely delighted with it. Joanna and I are still reading the original messages and the fantastic poems, especially our personal favorite about our wedding cake 'Curly Whirly Shirley'. We loved the fact that so many of our guests contributed to the book which made it even more special. It captured the drama of the day and included pictures of nearly all of our guests. We will happily recommend you to all our friends. Thanks again, we will cherish it forever. James London
