Ramu Kariat signed him for the Malayalam film Chemmeen (1965). The film was released in 1965, to universal critical acclaim. The photography by Bartley was highly praised.

His specialty was the shots under the moonlight.

Successively, Bartley worked in many studios such as National Studios, Newtone Studios and Vauhini Productions.


In 1940, Bartley headed to Bombay and joined The Times of India as press photographer, and then became a newsreel cameraman for British Movietone under the auspices of The Times of India. Bartley did not have any formal training in photography. He worked hard and learned the craft on the job.
