My name is John, a Columbus Ohio area portrait and event photographer. I have a passion for finding the uniqueness in people with location environmental photography. I conveniently bring the studio to you. I bring my easy going attitude to every project. During events I try to remain invisible simply because people tend to change their posing, posture and behavior when conscious of a photographer being present. For portraits, I gently direct my subjects into poses that feel and appear natural.
Black and White photography was the first thing that was present to me as a photographic outlet. I was told I was an amazing Dark Room printer. Now we use Photoshop. I strive to find the best Black and White photos I can using Photoshop.
Central Ohio is not known for its breath-taking landscapes, you can find landscapes you just need to look in the right places.
Concert photography is one of my favorite things to do. See a live show from the pit, make photos, and hear great music.
Please check out my blog post on how to be a concert photographer, I have a list of things I never leave home with out for a concert, and how to build credentials to get those big shows. (coming soon)
More product photos coming soon..... While you wait enjoy some photos of flowers that I shot and set up in my basement. Some were shot out in nature, still with a studio set up.
I volunteer my Photography and time with the Central Ohio Metro Parks. I feel that helps bring the community closer to the park system with educational programs.
I also volunteer my photography and time with Head Count They stage voter registration drives at concerts and run programs that translate the power of music into real action.
Columbus! What can I say about photographing Columbus? Most of the shots I have here are at night. I quote my good friend Tom "The Light is Better at Night" he is a brilliant photographer and I would give you a link to his work, but he refuses to share his work on line.
