The work contained in this gallery is a retrospective of recent works. It offers samples of the variety of current fine art I am working on. Many individual pieces represent a entire series or multiple series represented inside this website. These sets should be helpful to models as well, to understand the type and style of work that I regularly do.
Automotonaphobia is my project exploring the sock monkey. It explores various themes of my work in a humorous manner. The ultimate goal of this work is to produce a volume base graphic novel with styling take from comics of my generation. The themes are adult in nature.

Glamour photography is the lighter side of capturing beauty. I enjoy this work as it is satisfying to both myself and the models to capture their grace and beauty.
Working slowly and with lots of feedback, I have found myself able to create an image that people can cherish for years to come.
Feel free to contact John if you would like to be a part of any of the artworks you see here.
As a ceramicist, I work in figurative influenced art as well. Some early works are highlighted here.
This section is for a record of my travels. Find interesting pictures of China, and a variety of landscapes from across the United States. I frequent national parks, for both location shooting and landscape shooting. Examples of these works can be found in this gallery.
Music is a passion. Working with upcoming and younger artist, you feel that passion first hand. Look to this section for the musical artist I have worked with and links to their promotional works. I am always available for unique flyer, poster, album cover and liner note work. Out of the ordinary is a plus.
Here is where I display the street photography. Armed with a fast camera and some super fast film, I try to capture humans in there natural settings, like in a bar. All of this work is done with available light, and offers a distinction from my studio work. This is also the section where you will see the majority of my film work.
Here you will find examples of events I have photographed. I particularly enjoy shooting motorcycle and car shows, fighting competitions of all types, parades and demonstrations. This work is rewarding as it captures images of the community at large. No models, just ordinary people doing things they enjoy. I am available for all types of event photography.
