About From around the age of 12 John started to have an interest in photography, it was brought on by his sister who had made some prints for a high school photo assignment. "I looked at the images and just wanted to know a more about the places and the people in them. That was when I got my first 35mm film camera. I know, you're asking yourself...what's film?" In his early 20's John was fortunate enough to travel, he has been to more than 9 different countries around the world and has been published in National Geographic Traveler. "It's the people you meet in their different cultures that truly opens your eyes. It was since those travels that I really started to people watch. It has shaped how I prefer to go about photographing the life events around me." Currently John is working in the Commercial and Event photography world in Chicago, IL.
