John's mission is to create high quality photographs for interior designers, architects, landscape architects, publications and advertising. He thrives on collaboration and embraces challenges to create photographs that inspire, motivate and achieve recognition for his clients. His expertise has been applied to interior design, architecture, fine art, advertising, and the magazine world.
He is influenced by the everchanging light of Pacific Northwest weather, and its affect on subjects, large or small. Working in collaboration with his clients, John composes and lights space to create emotional response, integrity and timelessness, elevating the subject away from a crowded world of imagery. This method extends to his many other subjects as well, whether it is food, still life, portraits or travel.
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 Sawtooths, or along the shores of Puget Sound with his camera.
