Prestige Awards' Corporate Livewire South of England Commercial Photography Specialist of the Year 2020 & 2021

Emerging from lockdown: As a commercial studio owner & photographer I have been able to operate even during the lock-down for certain types of commercial work subject to extensive legal restrictions.  I resumed non-commercial studio work on 12 April.  I had my first vaccination on 3 February and second on 21 April.

My own studio: Hangleton Lane Studio - SME News Best Commercial Photography Studio - South England 2021

Reference 200: "Every time I shoot with Barney, the photos keep getting better and better. This was my first time shooting street fashion with him and he did not disappoint. He had many fun and quirky ideas which played out fabulously. Can't wait to work with him again!" Krista M

Freelance photographer covering commercial product photography, fashion, dance, fitness, tourism, fast cars, food, architecture and interior design, and erotic-artistic stills and video.  My studio is home to the world's most advanced small-studio stills and video virtual reality backdrop system.  I provide all the football photography to the Arabic-speaking world's largest spot-the-ball website.

Published in over seventy countries on five continents. Over 700 references worldwide from clients, models, dancers and sub-contractors on all portals where listed.  The highest rated commercial photographer worldwide on freelancer.com and ranked in the top 5% most trusted UK photographers of any genre on Safebuy.  DBS check, full COVID-19 procedure and £2m public liability and client products / clothing in-house professional indemnity insurance and £5m on location.

Member of SIFGP, People-per-hour, Freelancer, Purpleport, Model Mayhem, Model-Kartei and Modelfolio amongst many others, and listed on Spotlight and Mandy for headshot work.  I trained and worked as a dancer and choreographer in my youth. I still speak "ballet".

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 Kalashnikova, Bexie, Mischkah and JJ Phoenix in my portfolio are stills from those products.

Authorised UK scout and photographer for an EU based production studio providing content to Metart, W4B and Femjoy along with a number of other websites within the same genre.  UK based models (or those visiting the UK) seeking to work on such sites are welcome to contact me.  EU based models will be referred directly to the production company.

I have over 35 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.

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 was a member of the original yell.com sales, marketing and advertising content team.

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, for content share 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 and competitive 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 and in line with contractual agreements, in a timely fashion.  All models who have not completed full time compulsory education are licensed by the relevant authority.  All models under 18 are chaperoned.

UK's highest grossing fundraiser for Photo Aid (part of Live Aid / Band Aid) in 1986 working with Linda Lusardi.
