Hi! I’m Peter R. Barber!  My blog is based mainly on my career as a full time photographer.


I am a full time staff photographer at the Daily Gazette in Schenectady . NY where I have called home for the past 16 years. I can honestly say I have the best job on the planet and can never get enough of doing the job whether I am working, off shift, or on vacation. I am also a retired volunteer firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician with Niskayuna Fire District 1, where I remain their company photographer, and Mohawk Ambulance from 2005-2007. I have been wandering the sidelines of New York Jets football games since 2004 and have had a season credential for the past 10 years. In my freelance business I do weddings, portraits, commercial, and real estate photography. Go to my website at www.peterrbarber.com for more information.
