"I build handcrafted custom guitars for an exclusive group of musicians. Ever since 2004 I have been having Mary photograph each one I build in detail for use on my webpage and to document each instrument. As a former professional photographer's assistant in NYC, I knew from the beginning of our work relationship that Mary could produce the quality I wanted. We work together very efficiently - she understands what I need, and produces it every time."

Harlem Ambassadors Exhibition Basketball Team
"Mary Pridgen of Bare Bones Photography has been our 'Team Photographer' for the Harlem Ambassadors Show Basketball team for more than ten years. She has produced consistently professional portraits and team photos for use on our webpage and on our posters, promotional items, and souvenir prints. She knows exactly what we want and delivers it, efficiently and cheerfully. Mary has consistently provided quality work and is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her to anyone needing professional photography work."

University of Colorado Health Physician Relations
Since 2013, our department at UCH has been using Mary Pridgen at Bare Bones Photography almost exclusively to do webpage and marketing portraits of our new medical staff personnel as they are hired. She has brought to that task unmatched consistency of style, value, quality and convenience. Her workflow turnaround is such that she makes the process look deceptively quick and easy, but she always puts her subjects at ease. They feel comfortable, and look professional and approachable, and we recognize that this is a rare talent. I recommend her highly for your business and personal portrait needs.

Poudre Valley Hospital Surgery Entry Display
"I am delighted with the display of photos that Mary Pridgen at Bare Bones Photography produced in September of 2011. The project was a major undertaking, and Mary handled it efficiently and artistically. She immediately grasped the idea of what I wanted, gave me an accurate estimate, provided me with samples of the metal prints she proposed, and worked well with the employees to achieve just the look we were after. She then designed a unique style treatment and a very pleasing layout, and handled the complicated ordering process independently. She delivered the products on time and on budget, and the results are beautiful.
Our hallway display impresses everyone who sees it. She went far beyond being just a photographer. She executed a concept from start to finish. If you are looking for someone who will take a personal interest in your project and offer creative solution, Mary is the photographer you should call."
