Barry commenced his photography career in 1997 by joining a local photography club, then by attending and studying photography at two colleges in the Brisbane, Australia. Within two years he became an accredited judge of photography with the Photographic Society of Queensland.


He became a professional photographer in 2001, opening a photography studio (Mystique of Images) in Brisbane, Australia. Also, in that year, he became an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers. A position held for ten years before retiring from commercial photography assignments.  Barry’s work during this period was concentrated on portraiture and portfolios for models and actors.


In 2007 Barry closed the Brisbane photography studio and travelled to Vietnam which then resulted in him commencing in 2008, photographers’ tours to Vietnam and sometimes Cambodia. He continued taking photographic tour groups to Vietnam several times a year over a seven-year period.


During this period, he also travelled solo throughout Vietnam northern regions, photographing the people, their lifestyle and their culture.


Barry has had several exhibitions of his Vietnam images in Queensland galleries and has received several awards for his photography both at national and international levels. In 2009 and again in 2015, he was runner up in the Portraiture Section of the International Black and White Spider Award competitions.


Barry has presented at several photographic conferences in Queensland, Australia, and has also lectured and taught photography throughout his career. In 2009, he was recognised by the then Vietnamese Consul General to Australia (Vu Hong Nam) as a photographer who portrayed a true vision of the Vietnamese people and their lifestyle.


Barry’s artistic approach in his later portrait images are mostly captured un-posed in the street, where he attempts to portray a true representation of the character and life of those people he is photographing. He endeavours to present to the viewer an image that displays feeling and soul and one where the viewer ponders on the life of the subject within the image.


In his photography of the Vietnamese people, Barry has strived to represent their lifestyle and culture of those mostly living well away from the normal paths of the country’s popular tourist locations.
