Born in Aberdeen, Scotland and raised in Niagara, Barry Smith’s unique pictures come to life like a fresh painting on canvas. He primarily prints on locally printed canvas to bring out the textures and depths of the photographs. Barry enjoys photographing architecture, people and irony. He is always looking to capture the uncaptured, the soon to be lost forever, and the once in a lifetime moment in time. With a knack for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary, look for the kilt-wearing photographer in your area!

Look for Barry on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and as a member of Niagara Shores Artists, also as a wedding photography partner of dbs studios. He is currently working on an amazing art project with fellow painter Robin Nisbet.
