Recognised as one of Scotland’s leading studio photographers, Barrie specialises in dance & ballet, headshots, commercial and fine-art photography (when he’s not entertaining Kara the dog).
Barrie’s work is often immediately recognisable for his clean and subtle use of light and a simple, elegant, uncomplicated style. While Barrie, of course, has an Instagram presence (@barriespence), Barrie’s work is not a product of the filters and presets common to so many Instagram photographers.
As a change of career (or mid-life crisis), Barrie opened his studio in the East Pavilion of Blackburn House (Seafield, West Lothian) in the summer of 2011. It generally keeps him out of mischief.
