Barry Haynes

Barry Haynes has been involved with photography since he was 14 using a Kodak Instamatic 104 on a trip to England. He later became a U.S. Navy photographer and attended most of the Navy’s advanced photography courses. After getting his BA in computer science from the University of California San Diego, Barry spent 10 years, from 1980 to 1990, doing software development and research at Apple. It was a great time to be at Apple, and Barry was able to be part of Apples’s growth from 500 employees to over 10,000. He took a leave of absence from Apple in 1990 to set up a darkroom and get back to his photography. He soon found himself teaching Photoshop workshops and the notes for those evolved into Barry’s advanced Photoshop Artistry book series, the latest of these being Photoshop 7 Artistry: Mastering the Digital Image from New Riders. His books are very popular with photographers and artists who are using Photoshop to create their final artwork.

He also teaches in depth digital printmaking workshops from his studio in Corvallis, Oregon. Barry enjoys using his Photoshop darkroom techniques to print, show and sell his own photography using Epson and Lightjet digital printers. He is currently working on a new book entitled Making the Digital Print, which will cover all aspects of making the best commercial and art quality digital prints. Barry has given talks and workshops from Palm Beach Photographic Center, Santa Fe Workshops, Anderson Ranch, the Photoshop Conference, Seybold Seminars, MacWorld, the Center for Creative Imaging, advertising agencies, design firms, photography stores and other organizations. His articles appear in Communication Arts, Camera Arts and other photography magazines.
