Before moving to the Northwest, John photographed widely in Asia, Europe and Mexico, as well as in his long-term home state of New Mexico. He works in all camera formats, but favors infrared and high-speed B&W films for interpretive images. His current photographic work is nearly all black and white, printed in his own darkroom.

New work since arriving on Whidbey Island has covered a wide range of interests, sparked by the new environment. The "Whidbey in Color" and "Whidbey Scenery " galleries below reflect his impressions. Newest additions are in "Nautical" and "Eastern Plains" galleries.

The motorcycle, car and truck sections of this web-site are on-going projects in a series he loosely defines as "Industrial Glamour." Those galleries reflect his admiration for people who build things that are both functional and graceful. 

Featured older work includes mystic places in Japan, China, Mexico, and England.

John displays at Artworks Gallery in Greenbank Farm and Penn Cove Gallery in Coupeville on Whidbey Island.

In addition, John provides high quality digital photography for artists who need to document their work.
