I’m a commercial food photographer who finds beauty in even the most humble ingredients and always strives to make a food photograph as visually delicious as its real-life counterpart. My images are always fresh and compelling, and get to the heart of why we’re all so obsessed with food in the first place. As a former art director with a keen eye for layout and photo details, I work well within parameters defined by my client’s creative team or agency, but I’m just as happy to take the lead as needed, especially for my client-direct shoots.
I am a New York based photographer specializing in commercial and editorial fashion and beauty photography. My style is intimate, sensual, and romantic. I am focused on showing a more equitable world through my work.

Hi, I’m John. I am a commercial and editorial photographer specializing in lifestyle, fashion, and beauty imagery. I enjoy telling stories with pictures of people. I grew up on the banks of the Tennessee River, in an area of northern Alabama best known for its legendary recording studios and its ample fresh water. The grandson of a boat builder, I spent most of my childhood splashing around in the latter. My love for being in, on, and near the water continues to this day and has led me to the shores of South Florida, where I live with my wife, Erin, and our daughter, Emilia. (You may even see water make an appearance in my work from time to time.) I picked up the camera professionally in 2009 and have not looked back. When not working on a project, I can be found scribbling in my notebook, playing guitar for an audience of two, debating the intricacies of life with a toddler, or predictably, somewhere near the water.

I have always had a vivid imagination and restless spirit. Growing up, I resisted routine. I dreamt in moving and still images. I imagined the light that burns inside people shining outward, giving colour to space and objects, spreading like long fingers over my community to move life like a musician makes music. The things I imagined told the story of my life and all its contradictions; more than anything, I wanted to capture that life. Soon, I discovered photography and the means of capturing it was in my hands. The beauty in the everyday existence of ordinary people that I once imagined became the subject of my art, through which I capture images focusing on the human face and its unique ability to convey a person’s spirit. There is nothing else like it. My photographs are thus inspired by the ineffable and under-appreciated quality of the human face as unlike anything else in existence. It is, on one level, as profane as any body part, made of flesh and common enough among people; and yet our faces are unmatched in their abilities to reveal, if even fleetingly, something divine. Through portraiture – indeed, the photographic study of the face – my work emphasizes that which reveals us and conceals us, defines and perplexes us, moves and stupefies us, eludes and demands knowing. My portraits depict the intersectionality of the human face as a liminal subject joining the sacred and profane.
I love creating narratives through photographs — about people, moments, businesses, the creative process — everything really. There’s always a story.
My focus is fashion, portrait, and lifestyle photography. My personal work has focused on street photography. I love the hunt for the moment, the delight of the unexpected, and the tableau of the everyday.
I’m a self-taught photographer and former lawyer. I’ve also freelanced as a writer for several New York newspapers.
I live in New York City with my husband and two daughters.

I have a pretty simple life. I like traveling, coffee, and laughing. . . ideally, all at once. I live on a small farm in Ireland, where my partner Olivia and I have an animal sanctuary. I was first handed an old Kodak Brownie camera at age 10. I went on to college where I studied photography and graduated at the top of my class. After a handful of photo jobs, I stumbled into producing. With its fast-paced creativity and non-stop action in captivating images, the advertising world swept me right off my feet. In my years in this industry, I’ve worked as a photographer, director and producer for clients like Sony, Cadillac, Honda, Bushmills, HP and IBM. I’ve organized and executed photo and video shoots for everything from food and yoga to homes, cars, and aerospace. If you can think of it, I’ve put a shoot together for it. After all this time, I’ve realised why I truly love what I do; I love people’s stories, and the chance to help tell those stories. And I especially love telling those stories using visual media, which brings depth and dimension to a narrative like nothing else.
