High-resolution photoionization experiments were carried out using beams of Be-like C^{2+}, N^{3+}, and O^{4+} ions with roughly equal populations of the ^1S ground-state and the ^3P^o manifold of metastable components. The energy scales of the experiments are calibrated with uncertainties of 1 to 10 meV depending on photon energy. Resolving powers beyond 20,000 were reached allowing for the separation of contributions from the individual metastable ^3P_0^0, ^3P_1^o, and ^3P_2^o states. The measured data compare favourably with semi-relativistic Breit-Pauli R-matrix.
