John started his career in Boston, Massachusetts where he studied and taught photography. His early work as a Documentary Photographer earned him a Massachusetts Council for the Arts and Humanities Photography Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Project Grant.
John found his way to Portland, Oregon where he enjoyed a successful career as an Advertising and Editorial Photographer.
Although John is known for his photography of food and cookbooks he is often praised by clients for his skill as a director being very comfortable working with both professional and non-professional talent. At home both on location and in the studio John brings an array of skills and ideas to client projects.
Presently John enjoys the contrast of living in both the Piedmont region of Italy and Boston, MA. Although John continues to work with his advertising and editorial clients his focus is on the personal projects that speak to his passion and his politics.
