On April 22nd, 1984, American photographer Ansel Adams passed away leaving behind a legacy and body of work that would forever influence landscape photography. His iconic black-and-white images helped to establish photography among the fine arts.
That very same day in April of 84’ Barry DiBernardo stepped foot onto Yosemite National Park on a trip scheduled to meet Ansel.
Call it fate, call it coincidence, but Barry wasn’t able to meet his idol on that trip. Instead, he took his spirit with him, and began his pursuit in creating some of the most impressive photographs of Yosemite National Park since Ansel.
Barry was enamored by photography since the age of 12. He learned still photography quickly and received the Top Award by the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs 3 years in a row. Simultaneously at age 16, was recognized by Eastman Kodak for his motion picture abilities by winning the Kodak International Teenage Movie Award Competition.
Barry DiBernardo started his professional photographic career at age, 16, with weddings, portraits, commercial and convention photography. His efforts continued thru college and medical school. In surgical residency, he was the creator and Founder of, Dermagraphix®, an imaging system for the early detection of skin cancers now used worldwide. Once in Plastic Surgery, Dr DiBernardo created and published, The Photographic Standards in Clinical Photography and is one of the world leaders in clinical imaging as well as light and energy-based aesthetic treatment devices.
His love for landscape and nature photography started early as well. Over the years, he has traveled the world, pole to pole with National Geographic.
The evolution from film to digital evolved over his photographic career.
With and eye for image and beauty, both in photography and Plastic Surgery, Barry DiBernardo is now producing images which are once finally to the standards of film. Technology both in cameras and printing, had to progress to the point of sensors seeing as close to the human eye as never seen before. He believes we have entered a new era of the photographic experience. And has been championing the best technology in the industry today. In fact he is one of a few photographers in the country using the Phase One 150 Megapixel Back with the Danish View Camera Cambo, and the finest Rodenstock German lenses.
