Peter Goldberg is a masterful photographer. I have worked with Peter over the years on everything from events to portrait photography. Most recently we asked Peter to photograph our faculty – approximately 60 shots over three days. A job of this nature not only requires skills as a photographer, but also diplomacy and organization! He truly services his clients with a one-stop-shop philosophy.

Karen Scanlan
Director of Communications
Brown University School of Public Health

“Peter Goldberg is an excellent photographer with a pleasant professional manner. He has regularly provided a wide variety of photography for our brochures and marketing materials, including the annual shot of the entire entering class. He is always careful to find out in advance what the purpose of the photography is so that he is sure to secure the kind of shots needed – portrait, texture, environmental, and so on – and he consistently provides us with an abundance of interesting, beautifully composed shots to choose from. I wholeheartedly recommend him.”

Susan Weston
Former Director of Communications and Stewardship
Brown University

“Peter has artistically rendered both a 300-foot deep sewer tunnel and a 365-foot tall wind turbine with dynamism and sensitivity to tell the story of clean water and green energy. He will go to any height or depth to get the shot. In addition, his prints have turned our conference room from a mere meeting space into a gallery that presents our agency’s accomplishments in a visually stunning way.”
