About Ian Barber Photography

A small insight into who I am and what I do

My Story

My photography journey started many years ago during a trip to the Grand Canyon in the USA. Seeing this grand vista made me realise that I wanted to be able to capture moments in time through capturing a still photograph.

I currently use both digital and analog film to make the initial exposure and the majority of my post processing is performed with Adobe Photoshop which I have been using on a daily basis for over 15 years.

Why Black and White?

We see and live in a world of colour. That’s how we’ve evolved, and it’s the world that we know. Naturally, people seem to gravitate to colour photography. I think black and white is timeless, but more than that, it transcends reality and transforms an image into a realm that isn’t abstraction, but isn’t reality either.
