Profotos Member Biography - Bart Harris

Bart Harris has been a professional photographer since the age of 15. He shot his first advertising campaign for Leo Burnett at the age of 18: automobile-racing images for Pure Oil. Beginning with his expertise as a beta tester for Polaroid in the 70's and 80's, he remains at the leading edge of photographic technology. Bart went exclusively digital in early '94 and his passion is learning newer and faster ways to make photographic images. Bart began beta testing and lecturing about digital photography for Eastman Kodak and lecturing for Calumet Photographic in 1994 and continues as a guest lecturer them and others.

Bart is primarily a people photographer who shoots for advertising agencies, corporate clients, healthcare companies, publishing companies and photographic industry accounts as well as select portrait clients. Bart is equally comfortable shooting in his studio and on location and is considered an upper echelon photographer.

He has recently begun to show and market his limited edition fine art prints and is also the author of a sports-oriented photographic comic strip, possibly the first ever published. His favorite photographic subjects are children, celebrities, humorous situations and challenging projects. His approach is to either capture or recreate reality through simple, believable lighting with the emphasis on casting.

The lessons learned in complex production for such clients as MacDonald's, Kelloggs Corporation, Virginia Slims, State Farm Insurance, Sara Lee, Marlboro Cigarettes, Budweiser and Miller Brewing Companies, Wheaties, Bayer Corporation, Gerber Baby Food, Alberto Culver, General Electric, Twentieth Century Fox, etc. carry over into even the simplest of projects. He takes a logical approach to everything he does.

Through digital photography Bart's shooting technique has evolved into a more painterly approach due to his ability to make adjustments as he shoots. He takes great pride in his website which displays hundreds of images in an easily navigated format, allowing the viewer to select the subject matter that interests them the most. Stock images are available and an economical approach to certain subjects encourage the photography buyer to consider "stock by assignment".
