Eric Bartlett

Eric Bartlett is a retired Canadian business executive, now pursuing his passion for portrait, beauty, fashion and landscape photography.

Bartlett had love for photography as a teenager and owned several film cameras as a teen. Unfortunately educational and career pursuits including raising a family demanded, most of his time. Hence, photography took a back seat.

Eric Bartlett later took up photography when digital came on the scene in the 1990s. Bartlett is a professional accountant by trade, however he spent most of his career, in executive business management. In regards to photography, the retired business executive completed both the Digital and Professional Photography Programs with the New York Institute of Photography.

Aside that, Bartlett had attended several workshops and constantly read and watch videos on photography. But most importantly, he practices by shooting a lot in the studio and in the field.

Presently based in St. John’s, NL, Canada. Eric Bartlett’s most prized possession is his Nikon D4 digital camera, which constantly motivate and inspires him as a photographer.

Bartlett cites Russell James as his favourite photographer of all time, as he is one of the best in the fashion industry.

Eric Bartlett really thinks, he is pretty versatile and like most photographers there is nothing, he doesn’t like about photography. But he often gravitate back to portrait and landscape, as he is pretty versatile in the studio with lighting, including strobes and speed lites. Lighting is absolutely, his strongest point.

During a recent interview with NaijaOnlineTV, Eric Bartlett, the Canadian born, retired business executive, turned photographer revealed that though some professional photographers make a lot of money. However, he said for most its a bit of struggle.

He further stated, that if you are on your own running a small business, there is a lot involved. Not only do you have to be good in photography, buy you need to also be good at marketing, business management, e.t.c. “It can be quite daunting starting out”, he said.

However, from his personal experience he said, he doesn’t really think people fully appreciate what it takes to become a professional photographer and what it actually takes to stay on top of your game.


Bartlett thinks, there is a general tendency to under value photographers especially these days, as everyone who owns a camera, think they are a photographer.

However, Eric Bartlett thinks to some degree, professional photographers are loosing it these days, due to the availability of smartphone with quality inbuilt HD cameras. He said these smartphones do an amazing job but they simply don’t have the capability of DSLRs and this he pointed is especially true, when it comes to portrait photography.

The smartphones have advantages, but their limitations are far greater than DSLRs, he said. Bartlett further noted, that there is more to photography than the camera itself.

Eric Bartlett is a lover of photography all his life and have been practicing as a professional photographer for over a decade. Being a photographer is a second career for him, however because of his love for the profession, Bartlett regrets not making it his first career.
