Lee Simonds

“Being very photo aversive, I was apprehensive about having a business headshot done. Rick put me at ease immediately while all the time making sure that he had the lighting and settings on the camera just right.”

What Are Your Hours?
Session times at the studio and on-location are available by appointment. Weekdays I generally start shooting at 10a, usually completing my last session at 3p. There are occasional weekend hours available by request. If you need a time that falls outside weekday hours, ask and I will make every effort to accommodate your request.
Where Are You Located?

Rick Bern Photography is located inside an historic clothing factory built in 1893 called “Gorse Mill”. It’s situated in a quiet residential neighborhood just 25 minutes from Boston and is now home to over 50 local artist studios.


The address is 31 THORPE ROAD, NEEDHAM HEIGHTS, MA, Suite 104. It is less than one mile off Route 128. Simply follow 128 to EXIT 19C “HIGHLAND AVE NEEDHAM”. Travel 1⁄2 mile and take a left onto WEBSTER ST. After the next set of lights go left onto THORPE RD.


When you pull onto Thorpe Road immediately start looking for a sign on the left that says “Gorse Mill Studios”. There’s plenty of free parking in our lot. When you come into the building, the studio is on the first floor (not the basement level), just follow the signs.


Although the front door does not open automatically, the building has a ramp in front to allow for wheelchair accessibility. If you need assistance, please call my cell when you arrive at (617) 504-7005.

Do You Do Consultations?

Absolutely. I love chatting with clients to discuss ideas and answer questions. Feel free to call my cell (617) 504-7005 or email to set up a time for a later date.

Will You Travel?

I shoot on-location throughout New England all the time. I’m available to travel out of state (or out of country) depending on the timing and size of the project.

How Long Have You Been In Business?

My interest in photography started back when I was probably about 10 years old but it wasn’t until I was in my 40’s when my wife Jaimie said to me: “I see photography at the top of your list, when are you going to take it seriously?” It was a year later, in 2006, when Rick Bern Photography was officially created.

Do You Only Shoot Headshots?

Great question. When you look broadly at my career I would be considered a generalist given years of experience photographing thousands of weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate events, family portraits, dating profiles, LinkedIn and social media shots, medical residency photos, portraits of children, families, pets, and more.

I’m so sure that you will be thrilled with the results, that I offer a 100% money-back guarantee of your session fee if you are not completely satisfied with your photographs.
