As an artist, I always strive to “capture the moment” – whether I am shooting a morning sunrise, an intimate portrait, or a live sporting event – composing the image in such a way that the viewer can actually experience both the intensity and emotion of the moment.
John is a fine art landscape photographer who specializes in capturing the beauty of nature. He has won multiple awards for his work and is a well-known mountain climber and hiker. Many of John’s landscape photos come from his personal adventures in the great outdoors, or as a colleague once said, John takes fantastic images. It’s just that none of them are below 10,000 feet!
In addition to his photography work, John runs a series of professional full-immersion landscape photography workshops. These workshops are designed to allow photographers of all levels to learn from master photographers and develop their unique photographic voice.
John’s Death Valley National Park images were recently displayed as part of the 100 Years of the National Park Service at The G2 Gallery in Los Angeles. His work captures the emotion and intensity of the desert landscape. While the desert can be harsh and colorless in the intense light of day, the desert comes alive in the golden light of sunrise and twilight, and John’s work captures those brief moments.
His work has also been displayed in various museums and galleries, including the Griffin Museum of Photography in Boston, Massachusetts; the Amanda Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas; the Los Angeles Center of Photography; and the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art.
In addition to his landscape and fine art photography, John is an accomplished sports photographer. He is an official photographer for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, the Special Olympics, the World Police & Fire Games, the Rob Fukuzaki HUYF Annual Charity Golf Tournament, the ALS Association, Run-to-Remember LA, NCAA Sports, Nike, and various other organizations in the Los Angeles area. His commercial and editorial photographs have been featured in publications and online magazines, and his images have appeared in numerous advertising and marketing campaigns. John was also featured in 2021 as one of the top ten best event photographers in Los Angeles.
Born in the US Midwest, John has lived in Canada, spent time in Europe, and resided in Los Angeles since 2008.
