National Photography Training Manager, and Regional Photography Manager (Southern England and London) for V4 Digital Media (Google Trusted Agency)

I also work as a freelance photographer covering commercial product photography, fashion, dance, fitness, tourism, food, architecture and erotic-artistic stills and video.

I am much more active on other websites.

I have some 30 years experience. My main profile image, the ballet dancer, here 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; (still in the industry and now based in Seattle). I am based in Worthing, West Sussex, UK. I am willing to travel for shoots or work from my studio.

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. Prior to that I was head of training for the UK wing of one of the USA's largest photographic companies, and a director of companies in both the UK and France in the satellite television industry operating throughout EMEA.

I trained as a dancer and choreographer in my youth. I still speak "ballet".

I run one of only two remaining commercial studios in West Sussex - see southdowns on this site - and I carry £2,000,000 public and professional liability insurance.

Member of The Society of International Fashion and Glamour Photographers, 500px, Linkedin, Purpleport, Model Mayhem, Madcow, and Purestorm amongst others.


Phone / Mobile / Skype / Email on request
I always supply images to models whether on TF and syndication or if you are paying me. Where I am paying you it will almost invariably be for a commercial client, and I can only supply images then if I am allowed to do so. I do ask that you always credit me please.

It was good to welcome Barney to the studio on two occasions in the last 10 days. He attended with Dixie Daze and later with JenNev.

He utilised the whole facility both indoors and also the outside sets. From what I could observe he worked well with the models and hope to see him again.

Barney communicates perfectly before a shoot, making sure all is understood well before hand. The studio is perfectly functional (soon to improve loads more, I'm told), with a private space for the model, and plenty of heaters. I enjoy working with Barney as he knows what he wants but also likes to be creative, is fantastic with lighting, and knows exactly how much or how little to direct the model. Great fun and a pleasure every time. Certainly recommended.

Had my first shoot with Barney at my house yesterday.
He arrived on time & his pre shoot comms couldn't have been any clearer or concise!
Barney is an amazing photographer. He gave me great direction & it was obvious to me right from the very start that this guy is the consummate professional.
Yes he worked me extremely hard BUT WOW was it worth it!! Oh yes!!
I cannot wait to see the results of what was a fabulous shoot!!
I can't recommend this guy highly enough!
I look forward to shooting with him many times.
Thank you Barney!

I finally shot with Barney, after years of emails on my recent London tour. We shot from my shooting apartment, Barney turned up on time with great ideas for the shoot.
We shot some lovely floaty fashion stuff in natural light, then nudes and erotic. The photos looked great on the back of the camera, and I look forward to seeing the edits.

Let's not leave it as long til the next shoot!!
