Important notice: due to a fairly heavy commercial workload, please try to be thorough when messaging me. Thank you

I have the use of a nearby small indoor swimming pool for commercial fashion and soft glamour shoots.  Please note that I have to pay to use it but I have a mutual discount deal with the owner, a photographer in her own right (but not on this website).

Completely revised website launched March 2019 - LINK

My studio's new virtual reality backdrop system is now available for shooting.  If you're a model who'd like to find out just what remarkable things it can do, please contact me to arrange a shoot.  Please check my calendar (this link, not the Purpleport calendar) for my availability.

"Reference 100!  Says it all really.  Barney is a great guy and an amazing photographer.  He is so creative and has amazing vision for finding the perfect shots that nobody has ever thought of or tried..." Harley Page

I work as a freelance photographer covering commercial product photography, fashion, dance, fitness, tourism, fast cars, food, architecture and interior design, and erotic-artistic stills and video.    I am the highest rated full-time European commercial photographer on the world's largest freelancing website.

I run my own commercial studio on the edge of the South Downs National Park and I carry £2,000,000 public and professional liability insurance.  Hangleton Lane Studio is on this site, with location, directions, nearby hotels and travel times on the studio profile.  

STUDIO VIRTUAL TOUR - CLICK HERE - features model Serenity and photographer Graham.  Shot by myself.  Stitching by Peter at Forza Google.  Tour a little out of date nowadays, to be updated as soon as I can.

Member of SIFGP, 500px, Linkedin, People-per-hour, Purpleport, Mandy Network, Model Mayhem and Madcow amongst many others, and listed on Spotlight for headshot work.  Highest rated European photographer on, and also the most followed commercial photographer worldwide on  I trained and worked as a dancer and choreographer in my youth. I still speak "ballet".

I shoot virtual tours as an independent supplier for Google and private clients, and I am accredited to a number of major insurance and property management companies.

As far as I know I am the only photographer in the world shooting a unique variation on virtual tours for models.  The multi-exposure images of Natasha KalashnikovaBexie, Mischkah and JJ Phoenix in my portfolio are stills from those products.

I have over 30 years experience.  My avatar, the ballet dancer, was shot on a Bronica ETRS camera using Tri-X film for a small modelling and entertainment agency where I worked regularly from 1984 to 1986. Whilst there I shot the portfolio that got Clare Mulholland into Select agency.

Online availability calendar: - I find it difficult to keep the calendar here up to date as my work comes from various different sources.

Prior to returning full time to photography in 2008 I undertook freelance photography to fit in with my work as a senior consultant within the UK online and hard copy advertising markets for over 12 years.

I always supply images to models on TF, collaboration and syndication, but not if I am paying you.  All I ask is that you credit me please.  If models want photos for their own publication purposes or their own portfolios, I will be happy to collaborate or profit-share with those models meeting specific potential business requirements which benefits both of us, otherwise I do charge a fair rate for the job.

*Please note: I do not provide free (TF / Collaboration) photography services to commercial enterprises i.e. if the purpose of the images is to help you sell your products and/or services then I expect you to pay for my services.  In the event that you are a serious business looking here for a commercial photographer and you have a need and a budget, my rates are very reasonable and you'll receive a reliable, efficient, fully insured professional service for your money.  See my website for full details.

I have signed up to the Protecting Actors Casting Agreement, ID number 12656, helping to ensure all actors and models receive a copy of the final footage / images, where possible, in a timely fashion.
