Administrative history

Berryhill Fine Photography was owned by photographer H. Bruce Berry of Truro, Nova Scotia. With studios in both Truro and Halifax, Berryhill specialized in graduation, wedding, portrait, and commercial photography; prominent local clients included The Halifax Grammar School, Saint Mary's University, and Dalhousie. Developments in digital technology changed the nature of the industry and Berry closed his studios around 2004 when they became less financially viable. Shortly thereafter, Berry became a realtor in Truro, Nova Scotia.

Custodial history

Fonds was donated to the archives by Bruce Berry in 2004.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of colour portraits of Dalhousie graduates.
