About Barry J Brady
Instead of looking at life through my office window I wanted to live life through the lens of my camera. So after 15 years in the corporate sector I exchanged my suit and tie for a camera and a dream.
Since becoming a fulltime photographer in January 2008 I have been a senior lecturer at the College of Digital Photography in South Africa; teaching beginner and advanced photography courses and Adobe Photoshop. By the time I left South Africa I had established a successful photographic business focusing on Platinum property photography, 5* hotel venues and food photography.
During 2010 and 2011 my wife and I embarked on a two year travelling sabbatical to photograph silent and sacred places. We were thrilled to discover that I’d won silver in the Fuji Film Awards for a photograph I’d taken of Lemaire Channel in Antarctica. This was the third consecutive year that I’d been placed within the top three in the Fuji Film Awards.
Getty Images has added me to their database of stock photography contributors and in recent weeks I entered The Open Photo Contest whereupon I received a special mention on the day I submitted. (competition closes in August 2012)
We have now settled in the beautiful city of Vancouver, British Columbia. This city is a photographer’s paradise with diverse photo opportunities on our doorstep. Let’s work together to create the images you are going to love. I have plenty of ideas that will help you achieve this and I’m keen to share my experiences and what I’ve learned.
