Hi, I’m Barry and I am a fulltime photographer, thanks for visiting me on Lightimage. I have been into photography for many years, but went into it full time in January 2008. I specialise in a few areas of photography such as weddings, commercial shoots, food photography, real estate and other selected work.
I have a passion for photography and realised early on that it is all about capturing light and using light to create the image and emotion I want to portray. I also know that many people are frustrated with the photos they take because they can’t translate what they are seeing into an image that accurately portray that sight. As a result I have a real desire to teach people how to capture images that are dramatic, filled with meaning and something that they can be proud of.
I have been fortunate enough to have won a photomarathon in 2007 and in 2008 won a Bronze Award in the Fuji Film Photographic awards under the category “documentary”. In 2009 I won a Bronze Aware in the Scenic Category in the Fuji Film awards again. I currently live in Knysna, South Africa and for most of 2009, I lectured part time at the College of Digital Photography.
My wife and I landed in Buenos Aires on the 9th December 2009 to start the first leg of a 9 month trip through South America. We have travelled through Argentina, Antarctica, Chile and Peru. We are back in South Africa, but it was an amazing trip and a great time photographically speaking. The posts on this blog will give you some insights as to what we saw, where we are and what we are doing…we have been having a great time!
