Tribute on the Passing Of Peter Roy Byer

Bridgetown, Barbados.

It is with great sadness that the Barbados Government Information Service (BGIS) notes the passing of former Cinematographer, Peter Roy Byer.

Mr. Byer will be remembered as a standard bearer for many young professionals who have since joined the field of cinematography.

He started his career at the BGIS in 1973, working as both a stills and motion picture photographer. An ardent lover of the calypso art form, he was also the manager of the Kingdom of the Super Gladiators, based at Waterford, St. Michael. He retired from the Barbados Government Information Service on December 24, 2011.

Over the 38 years he worked with at the BGIS, he became synonymous with cinematography at the department. For him, videography was more than just a job; it was a passion which he pursued, insisting on excellence.  Following his retirement, he maintained ties with the BGIS, and on the occasion of the department’s 55th anniversary, donated a trophy for the Best Film Production.

The loss of this incredible talent will resonate for some time. The Barbados Government Information Service extends sincere condolences to his grieving family and friends. May he rest in peace. (KH/BGIS)
