"Robert Barbutti was recommmended to me by a colleague in the Training & Development arena.  I had a complex request with a very short time line for a deadline date and I was looking for a photographer that could meet the challenge.  The pics that I was asking Robert to shoot was to enhance the National Sales Meeting theme and take the environment of the meeting to the next level.  

Robert teleconferenced with me and immediately I knew that I had the perfect photographer for the job. Robert is extremely creative....a true artist.

Robert came for the shoot ultra, mega prepared offering his keen artistic eye and brought props that he knew would enhance the shoot beyond belief.  The result:  UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING!  Robert's photography was tranformed in poster sized presentations and displayed through several rooms at the National Sales Meeting.  Robert's photography was also used thoughout all presentations by every major presenter and all the Principles of our company over a 4-day National Sales Meeting and they were terrific.  Robert's photographs made our meeting and I became the reciepient of many accolades for getting the photography done by a photographer who provided exactly what we were asking him to produce for us, and took it above and beyond.

Robert is a true joy to work with from the moment he walks in the door to set-up for the shoot.  For our job, Robert was amazing while taking pics of over 30 different people.  Robert took the time to get to know each of the subjects and then found a way to pull out their personalities in all of the pictures and again, the result: AMAZING!

Robert met the extremely tight timeline crunch.  He then went over and above and took the project to the next level creating a wonderful silhouette of each of the photos which was PERFECT with our meeting theme.  Take a look at the pics on this review!  These are someof the themed silhouetted pictures!

I would highly recommend Robert for your photography needs.  Not only will you get an exceptional beautiful artisitc end product but you will gain a true friend for life.

Robert Barbutti is a great photographer, but more than that Robert is an exceptional person that I feel blessed to now know.

When you call Robert for your next photography need, ask him about his philanthropic projects.  Robert is a class act and gives back to our communities.

Feel free to call me at any time for a live Robert Barbutti recommendation!"

Robert is the best. He's done some awesome product photography for us (which you can see on our site at I liked how very easy and straightforward the whole process was. Just gave him some ideas of what I was looking for, handed him a box of product and a couple days later I was able to get photos up on my site. Having tried to do some product photos of m own out of necessity, I have total respect for his talent.

I would recommend Rob to anyone!
He was my first photographer when I started out modeling, and he was amazing. Made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera, gave me great tips, and is an overall good hearted person.
Thank you Rob!! ;o)

Mr. Barbutti is the photo man, he does not just do this as a job, it is his life. I have known him for years now and began working with him when he was Photo Editor for Adventure Sports Journal magazine in Santa Cruz, CA.  He is always willing to push the envelope of traditional perpective and exposuring to get a truly unique vision.  
Also being a photographer I always enjoy Rob's way of working and his wealth of information and great to work with.  Just call or email him and you wil understand immediately.

Carol and I are extremely satisfied with Robert's work. He is very professional. He has the ability to get those who do not normally  like to be photographed, smiling and excited to be photograpghed. Simply, he is on time, positive, and is the best photographer we have ever worked with, professionally or other wise.

"I just wanted to say that your photos of Project Bay Cat cats are amazing and beautiful! Your photos give heart to the project by portraying these beautiful creatures as just that. How lucky the project is to have your support and wonderful artwork. Thank you so much for your work for the cats.

I used to be involved with the Homeless Cat Network, and was involved in the beginnings of this project, so it is special to me. The cats are truly amazing. I plan to come to the Gala on 4/8 and I hope to see you then."

"As a jewelry artist, one of the hardest parts of applying to juried shows is getting product shots done of my work. It's important that the colors be crisp and accurate and product shown in their best light. Robert Barbutti has the unique ability to translate my art into photographs. I love the work he has done for me! I always recommend Robert to friends and business clients that are looking for a photographer. He is simply fabulous!"

“After looking at several other photographers for our wedding, we came upon Robert Barbutti and I have to say he was wonderful. He listened to exactly what we wanted and gave us just that! He was patient with a new bride on her special day and he made all the bridesmaids and mothers feel just as special. The photography was perfect. We could not have asked for more. He took beautiful black and white photos and the color photos were so clear, my mother thought they had been touched up.
We liked Robert so much, that we went back to him for our baby portraits and family photos. He is so versatile, he worked with our dogs and our newborn as easily as he worked with us. We could not be happier with our new family photos!”

"I hate getting my picture taken and never like the results. Rob not only got great results but I even enjoyed the process of having the pictures taken. Would definitely use him again. "

- Patti W, Cupertino, CA







"I have never been considered photogenic, so having pictures taken has always felt stressful. But in a two-hour photo shoot, Rob not only managed to get me to relax and enjoy myself, but also came up with at least a dozen shots that make me look great. Seriously—I have never had photos I like so much. I'd recommend his services without hesitation. Rob has an uncanny way with light, an eye for detail and an attention to form that result in stunning photos of the natural world as well as portraits that seem somehow to capture the authentic beauty inside the sitter rather than just in flattering shots (though you get those too)."

"When looking for a wedding photographer, we weren't sure what we wanted. After interviewing several, many who were referred, we still hadn't found what we were looking for. Searching on the internet, I found Robert Barbutti's Santa Cruz Photographer website and liked what I saw. When we met Robert, we appreciated his candor, creativity and sense of humor. We were immediately put at ease and our family and guests felt the same on our wedding day. He was always where we needed him to be, discrete yet personal, shooting both candid and formal shots. We were very pleased with the results of his photography - in color, black and white and infrared, and highly recommend him to anyone who wants quality photography for memorable moments. We will never forget this day thanks to Robert's photography genius."

- Melanie and David K, Alemeda, CA



"Just a note to thank you for being the perfect photographer for our wedding--you were exactly what we had hoped for! Your patience, fun nature and artistic eye were greatly appreciated. We've never seen better quality or attention to detail.
We have received many, many comments from friends and family about the beauty and creativity of the photos and how wonderful you were at the wedding.
We couldn't have asked for a better photographer to help us capture our special day on film. We will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer.
Your work is something we will treasure forever!"
