A photographer since high school, Barry Benton has developed an eye for composition, lighting and post-production. As Director of Business Development for GittingsLegal, Barry focuses on providing law firms with quality portraits. With a passion for travel, Barry has traveled the world creating stunning landscape and architectural images. His work has been featured in publications and online including The Spirit of Collin Country.

A longtime resident of Plano, Barry has recently started a new blog, PicturingRVLife, with his wife as they travel around the USA taking photographs while living in a motorhome.

When he’s not taking photos, David Downs is a Certified Financial Planner with Downs Fischer Financial as well as a dedicated community volunteer who has served in leadership positions on numerous non-profit boards. He was elected to the Plano City Council and was the recipient of the Leadership Plano Distinguished Leadership Award in 2012. Of his work, Downs said, “For as long as I can remember, I’ve spent my days with a camera running in the back of my mind. As my eyes travel around my surroundings they are constantly taking pictures. Sometimes they are photos of what I ‘see’ and other times they are photos of what ‘is’.”

View work by local artists at this ArtCentre display! The exhibition will extend through February 2nd and is open to all audiences.

At The Artistry at Craig Ranch Apartments in McKinney, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event.
