He joined Mathew Brady's gallery in 1861 and photographed Lincoln's inauguration. In 1864, as a photographer for the Union Army during the Civil War, Barnard made views of battlefields and followed Sherman's campaign on the March to the Sea. His work was published in Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign and Gardner's Photographic Sketchbook of the War.

After the Civil War Barnard worked in Chicago and South Carolina before returning to New York, where he helped George Eastman establish his photographic business.
