Long story short.

Barry was an art director for years. 20 to be exact. In agencies such as DDB and Ogilvy.

Then he bought a camera and took some portraits. A band hired him to shoot an album. Magazines hired him to shoot some articles. Public relations people hired him to shoot for them. Labels hired him to shoot more albums. There was some ads in there too. A little fashion along the way.

What does he attribute his success to? Being an art director for 20 years.

Before he had a camera, he had a sketchbook.
