All Canon Bodies and lenses. Singh Ray filters. Clikelite backpacks.

Raised amongst the towering peaks of Utah’s Wasatch Mountains, Adam Barker has a passion for photography matched only by his zest for life. Compared to photographer legends like Adams and Rowell, Barker captures dramatic imagery with a style and uniqueness all his own.
Many know Barker for his inspiring landscape work. Obsessed with golden light and unforgettable vistas, his landscapes have sold as limited edition fine art prints to private and corporate collectors throughout the United States. His love affair with exceptional imagery has translated into stirring editorial work in skiing, fly fishing and numerous other photography, lifestyle and adventure publications including Outdoor Photographer, Powder, Skiing, The Flyfish Journal, The Drake, USA Today and many more. In addition, Barker is also frequently sought after by commercial clients seeking imagery that conveys a strong sense of place, product and lifestyle.
