Biography

Brian and Jes Baer combined their photography studios and styles the summer of 2018 into Baer Studios in Kearney, Nebraska.  Prior to the new adventure, they completely rebranded the entire aesthetic of their studios into one cohesive brand to bring two businesses together.  Lots of planning and time was poured into the new Baer Studios and success followed. Sadly just one year later, a 500 year flood ripped through their home AND studio. Strong homes, relationships and even business are built on solid foundations. Even in the wake of this epic natural disaster, their foundations didn’t budge. They want to share their story with you, and to show you how they started over without starting over in their class.

Brian and Jes are accomplished award winners on the state and national levels. They are active in the Professional Photographers of Nebraska where they both served as PPN Past President and earned the PPN Diamond Fellow. Jes received the PPN Photographer of the Year in 2017, and Brian is a 4x PPN Senior Photographer of the Year. Both received their “Master Photographer” degrees from the Professional Photographers of America, as well as the PPA National Award

Their favorite ACI products include Photographic Prints, Premium Vinyl Banners, 2×3 Accordion Books, 5×7 Postcards, and Business Cards.
