Barros is a professional photographer and videographer with commercial and fine art clients throughout the United States. He is an FAA licensed drone pilot who uses a drone to take high-quality photographs and video for short documentary films. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
Barros’ fine art photography resides in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University. His commercial clientele includes artists, architects, businesses, magazines, and institutions. Princeton University has engaged his photographic services for 20 years.
Barros will share lessons learned as an artist-entrepreneur over the span of his 40-year career.
In seeking “engaging, meaningful subject matter,” he discusses the reward that accompanies one’s decision to “infuse commercial transactions with artistic sensibility.” Clarity in one’s vision, he claims, and authenticity, are what drives a quality brand to success.
