About Steve Barnett

Born Nottingham in 1956 and attended the Sheffield School of Art and Design from 1975 - 1978. It was sculpture I'd gone to study but was smitten with the darkrooms when I did my introductory course. I soon swapped departments to Photography, which was then under the inspirational tutelage of Roger Taylor and Ken Phillip. Subsequently I left with a B.A. in Communication Arts (Photography). Through contacts in the entirely different field of motorsport I gradually transitioned jobs from photography to manufacturing highly detailed handmade model cars for owners and collectors. Thirty years on and this is still my job but at every opportunity I'm out with my camera and tripod.
