About the Artist

Brad Barton
artist . author . speaker

One of the hardest things to do in a bio is to write about yourself in the third person, so I am not even going to attempt it here. 

I have been a photographer as long as I can remember, having had a camera in my hands for several decades. I opened a professional photography studio in 2005 and have had the pleasure to photograph hundreds of people and even a few celebrities. My passion is for meaningful, story telling imagery. I see everyone as beautiful and I use the camera to show people the beautiful person they are.

My passion for this beauty is what led me to this genre of photography. Women, in particular, deserve to be put up on a pedestal and shown just how absolutely gorgeous they are. 

I am a husband to a lovely wife (who loves what I do), father to two grown children, and grandfather to a baby boy who is destined to be a handful. I hold a Photographic Craftsman degree from Professional Photographers of America and have fulfilled the requirements for my Master of Photography degree to be awarded in January of 2016.

I have edited one book and published another solely of my pinup work. I also am available for mentoring and speaking, please see my main website for more information on that:
