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.

Because being "published" is passé
