Visit Raleigh Studio is a curated collection of digital assets (video footage, including from aerial drones at over 75 new locations), 360° virtual tours of 90 sites around Raleigh/Wake County and over 7,000 photographs collected from the area.

The Studio is intended to provide high-quality, rights-secured assets to area hospitality business partners, as well as other community stakeholders. 

To access the Studio photo library if you had an account prior to 2021:

To access the Studio photo library and/or destination b-roll video library if you do not have an account:

  • Go to raleigh.barberstock.com and choose Register Now.
  • Fill in the form with your contact information and how you intend to use the assets.
  • Under the bottommost dropdown menu, choose which assets you would like to access. Unless you are a member of the media, you will choose either Non-Media (Photos), Non-Media (Video/B-Roll) or Non-Media (Photos & Video/B-roll).

To access the Studio drone library:

  • Go to raleigh.barberstock.com and choose Register Now.
  • Fill in the form with your contact information and how you intend to use the footage.
  • Under the bottommost dropdown menu, choose Local Partners (Aerial Footage Projects).

The Barberstock system will alert Bureau staff to grant you access.

Here are a couple more important points:

  • For hospitality business partners in Wake County: If you find in this library photos that you have shared with Bureau staff and you would rather they not be included in the Studio, please contact us and we will gladly remove them.
  • For photographers: If you find photos that you have taken of hospitality businesses in the area (that have been shared with us) but you did not intend for them to be shared universally and you would rather we take them down, we would be happy to do that, too.

If you have questions about the destination photo library of Visit Raleigh Studio, please contact the CVB's creative director Karen DeSollar at kdesollar@visitRaleigh.com. If you have questions about the destination b-roll or drone video footage, please contact director of marketing and communications Jonathan Freeze, CDME, at jfreeze@visitRaleigh.com.
