Hi, I’m Bobbi Barbarich!
I’m an award-winning photographer from Nelson BC. I create brand-specific, engaging images for businesses who value authentic connection with their clients. I’m an event photographer for organizations who want to share the real feelings of their event.
Why do you need commercial photography tailored to your business?
- People connect with photos that are authentic to people behind the brand.
- Potential clients immediately see that your business is different from the others.
- Clients choose a business when they feel a personal connection to the people who work there and understand what they do.
- High quality photography attracts people to your website and social media.
We strive to create clean, user-friendly designs on both the web and in print. We believe that
well-presented content supported by outstanding imagery is a great marriage. Over the past 18
years, our skill set has grown beyond only web design, to include photography, aerial imagery,
video production, print design, branding, and content procurement for social media. We have
a proven track record of building sites and empowering clients with clean, vibrant, and human
centric design. We love building lasting relationships and supporting our clients as they grow

20 years ago, Kootenay Co-op Radio was a sparkle in the eyes of locals who felt the Kootenays needed a community radio station that expresses the unique spirit of the area. Since that time, we’ve built a radio station that broadcasts to communities throughout the West Kootenay and reaches even more listeners through internet streaming.
Member-owned and operated Kootenay Coop radio (CJLY) has served up eclectic music programming and spoken word shows exploring local issues, opinions, and events happening in our community. With almost 100 hours of original programming created by our passionate team of volunteer hosts each week, KCR is the destination for listeners who want an authentic Kootenay experience in French and English.
We are a full service creative production studio. We create websites, e-commerce solutions, digital content, short form video, photography and marketing collateral that engages, enlightens and inspires.
