Creating thoughtful and expressive photographs for interior designers, architects, landscape architects, publications and advertising has been a photographic passion of John Granen. Through collaboration with the designers, art directors, and builders, he gains understanding of the challenges, craftsmanship and the integration of the many disciplines that joined forces to form the structure or landscape.
His technique is influenced by the often fleeting and everchanging light of Pacific Northwest weather, and its affect on subjects, large or small. John composes and lights space to create emotional response, integrity and timelessness, elevating the subject above the increasingly crowded world of photographs.
As a native of Seattle, his personal endeavors include fundraising for the American Lung Association through the Climb for Clean Air program. John is also a member of the American Society of Media Photographers, and the Mountaineers. When not on assignment, you may find him on a trail in the Cascades, or along the shores of Puget Sound with his camera.
His expertise has been applied to interior design, architecture, fine art, advertising, and the magazine world. Featured in these publications and others:
