“We are a mother-daughter photography team and have been working together for over 15 years. It has always been a dream of ours to open a Studio + Gallery.  Now, this dream has come true. We welcome you to visit our photography gallery located in the beautiful Berkshire hills, Great Barrington.  We will be exhibiting our work and also that of other photographers.  Along with our artwork we also offer photography services. We specialize in portrait, event, editorial and commercial work. As the year unfolds we will host gallery events and studio workshops. We look forward to working with you and welcoming you to our gallery” ~Lisa & Sabine
