About the Photographer: JD Barnes - travel, adventure and nature photographer

JD Barnes - travel, adventure and nature photographer JD Barnes' lifetime of devotion to photography has spanned the medium from photo journalism, advertising and documentary to nature, travel and fine landscape capture.

A Vermont native, Joy received a degree in photography from Bennington College with subsequent masters classes at both Maine Photography Workshop and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California.

With an initial interest in black and white film photography, she embarked on documenting the now extinct furniture mills of New England while working as a photo journalist in the early 1970's.

JD Barnes Moving to San Francisco in 1979, Joy explored a photo career in advertising. For nearly 10 years she worked in the studio and darkroom with large format cameras and film. In addition to perfecting her technical skills as a photographer, it was during this time that she mastered the craft of exceptional printing which can still be seen in her prints today.

Emerging from years in the studio and darkroom, Joy shifted her focus to travel, nature and adventure in the digital world. She shoots with Nikon digital equipment and prints all of her own art prints with an Epson 7800 Stylus Pro. The ultrachrome inks and archival papers present her imagery with spectacular color and enduring quality that will grace any fine art collection today.

JD Barnes' work, described as "emotionally charged", "expressively sensual", "bold in color and design" and often "funny", has been exhibited internationally in public, corporate and private arenas.
