bartonMichael Bar­ton is an inter­na­tion­al award win­ning visu­al artist, instru­ment builder, edu­ca­tor and musi­cian.  Michael has pho­tographed a wide range of sub­jects and has a pro­lif­ic col­lec­tion of works. Barton’s char­ac­ter stud­ies, children’s por­traits, still life, street pho­tog­ra­phy and land­scapes have been fea­tured in col­lec­tions through­out the Unit­ed States and beyond. His grow­ing col­lec­tion of mixed media pieces and com­mis­sions have made an impact on how his audi­ences views the visu­al arts. Being a life­long stu­dent of the human­i­ties, Bar­ton received a Mas­ter of Music degree from the Uni­ver­si­ty of North Texas in 2000 and has stud­ied music for over 3 decades.

Along his jour­ney, Bar­ton has main­tained a strong com­mit­ment to teach­ing and acad­e­mia. Hav­ing taught a diverse range of top­ics includ­ing music, pho­to­graph­ic tech­nique, pho­to­graph­ic soft­ware, col­or man­age­ment, work­flow and astron­o­my, Bar­ton is able to approach edu­ca­tion from many dif­fer­ent angles. Speak­ing at major con­ven­tions, teach­ing pri­vate lessons, con­sult­ing and lec­tur­ing at the col­le­giate lev­el has giv­en Bar­ton an edge when it comes to adapt­ing to dif­fer­ent learn­ing styles and envi­ron­ments. Barton’s true pas­sion is in con­nect­ing with stu­dents and men­tor­ing in small­er, per­son­al groups and one on one ses­sions. Cre­at­ing a hands-on expe­ri­ence is a unique gift and one that is meant to be shared. Bring­ing peo­ple togeth­er while form­ing per­son­al rela­tion­ships is at the core of what dri­ves Bar­ton in every­thing aspect of his teaching.

He has been fea­tured in Pro­fes­sion­al Pho­tog­ra­ph­er, Rangefind­er, Texas Pro­fes­sion­al Pho­tog­ra­ph­er, and the Amer­i­can Soci­ety of Pho­tog­ra­phers Magazine.
