William B. Barnett


Bill is a frequent lecturer and judge for camera clubs and other organizations throughout New England and beyond. He is a member of The Photographic Society of America (PSA), the New Haven Camera Club, and the Connecticut Association of Photographers. He is a vice-president on the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) Board as co-director of the Interclub Projected Image Competitions.

For his work on behalf of the photographic community, he was elected a Fellow (FPSA) by PSA and Honorary Member (HonNEC) by NECCC. For his photographic skills he has received the distinctions of Grand Master (GMPSA) from PSA and Artiste (AFIAP) from the Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique. In 2019 Bill received the PSA Ashbrook Award for Digital Imaging Instruction.

In PSA recognized salons Bill has earned two Diamond Awards (color class) in the Projected Image Division, five Galaxy Awards in the Photo Travel Division, and five Stars in both the Nature and Photo Journalism Divisions. He has earned numerous awards for photo essays in the Projected Image and Photo Travel Divisions. 

Bill has written multiple feature articles for the PSA Journal. He received the Elmore Chatham Memorial Award for the best feature article in the PSA Journal for 2011. In 2019 he received the Keaton Editorial Award for the PSA Journal contributor of feature articles over a long period of time. His first feature article appeared in the October 1983 issue of the Journal. His photo travel work was featured in a Distinctive Image article in 2014.

For many years Bill pursued a hybrid approach to his photography where live narration, stills, video clips, and sound files were combined to create travel presentations and essays with more production values than is possible using just still photographs. Recently as he has traveled less he has taken a project oriented approach to his photography where he pursues interesting subjects closer to home.
