Meet Chad Barnier

Founder and CEO of Rialba Studio


Hi, I'm Chad.

As I see it, my genesis was as the guitarist and pianist in a pop band, touring around the world, trying to live the life of a nomad.

The band and the music industry instilled in me a "hustler's heart", doing whatever it takes to get things done, having a Rock n Roll, can-do attitude, and thinking on my feet.

During my time on the road I gradually picked up other creative skills - Photography, Graphic Design, and Web Design - and found the act of trying to explore and balance these disciplines gave me a unique perspective of each.

Meeting new people and hearing their stories is familiar to me. I love to dig deeper and understand why we do the things we do. Discovering how to communicate those stories is how I cut my teeth in photography.

I left the band and decided to invest my time and energy into building my own creative studio, Rialba Studio.

It felt right. It felt like home.
