George Barker (1844–1894) was a Canadian-American photographer.

He was born in London, Ontario, and he is believed to have began his training with James
Egan in the 1850s. By the age of 18, he had opened his own studio in London, but the next
year (1863), he moved to Niagara Falls, New York, where he worked for Platt D. Babbitt.

Barker established studios in both Niagara and London, Ontario.

Barker was also one of the earliest photographers to visit the state of Florida. At the time,
photography in Florida was challenging, as much of the state remained undeveloped, which
meant photographers needed to carry their bulky equipment through the state's wetlands
and subtropical jungles, as well as deal with delicate film in hot and humid conditions. Barker
spent nearly four years (on and off), from 1886 to 1890, documenting much of northern and
central Florida.
