I produce my limited edition fine art prints on Epson Ultrasmooth paper using Epson archival inks which have amazingly long life (100 years plus). Typically referred to as "Giclee" prints, as are many art reproductions and photographic prints, they are high quality, photographic ink jet prints. This term is misunderstood by many and has become universally accepted as a lasting, beautiful medium.

The Epson 9800 inkjet printer I print with allows me to produce images on 44" wide, fine art papers (and canvases) of unlimited length. While my images are available as small as ten inches, they look best at larger sizes and some are available up to ten feet on the long dimension .

I have been a professional photographer since the age of 13, when I was commissioned by various friends’ parents to photograph their families. I had my first legitimate exhibition at the age of 17 and sold my first photograph to Leo Burnett Advertising at 18. At 23 I formed Bart Harris Photography, Inc. and since then have collected almost every award for both still and film (TV commercials) photography in advertising.

Through the years I worked on many famous advertising campaigns such as Virginia Slims, Walter Payton’s Wheaties Box, Michael Jordan for Gatorade, Miller Light Beer’s sports celebrities (Dick Butkis, Marv Throneberry, Joe Frazier and more), John Madden’s Ace Hardware campaign, Spuds MacKenzie for Bud Light and many more.

Eleven years ago, I became the first “people photographer” in advertising to shoot 100% digitally. Shortly after this I began beta testing for Eastman Kodak and advising various advertising agencies about technical aspects of working with digital files.

In late 2003, I was hired by 20th Century Fox to produce digital images of Chicago that were initially to be used as guides for digitally constructed Chicago scenes. A number of those photographs became backgrounds in the feature film I Robot. These images led me to continue photographing Chicago and creating limited edition, fine-art photographic prints. I still pursue my advertising photography career and have created the first ever photographic comic strip (which can be seen on line in the Tribune’s sports section: .   Please look for “Around The Corner”, my comic strip’s name.

Tip of the Week
Bart Harris

Michael Weinstein

A commercial photographer bound to fulfill the dictates of his clients, Bart Harris was frustrated that he could not capture the full beauty of the scene that he would perceive in his mind's eye in a print--until he discovered the computer. It is dangerous to apply digital manipulation to improving upon a perfectly good straight shot, as Harris does. He succeeds best when we would not suspect digital intervention, as in his exuberantly lush color shot of concrete planters along South Michigan Avenue brimming with densely sprouting floral vegetation, transporting us to our sweet home's transient tropics. Under Harris's ministrations, the world around us perfected is not much different from what it normally looks like in a magazine, except that things pop out more--a mild yet pleasurable acid trip.
