Many People Look, Very Few See

ASSIGNMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

There are a lot of good photographers out there. What makes you decide on who to hire? Is it cost, style, experience, trust, compatibility? I believe it is all those reasons and more.

All of us each sees the world thru our own eyes. My job is to understand what you need, and bring my experience, passion and imagination to bear on solving your problems.

I love to work on location. I have had a long career doing many types of work, from shooting architecture in a big city to taking photos in the deepest wilderness. My current direction of interest is taking me back into doing more outdoor oriented and environmental work for corporations and non-profit groups. As part of my toolbox to make your images stand out, I also specialize in:


"VIRTUAL TOUR" / PANORAMIC & IMMERSIVE 360°
I was a very early adopter of this type of work. The ability to shoot a partial or full 360 degree view of an exterior or interior space, allowing the viewer to spin within the scene at the drag of a mouse.

"TIMELAPSE°
Capture the intangible elements of time and motion and fire up your imagination at the possibilities.

"LOW ALTITUDE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY°
With the advent of drone technology, this is a very fascinating new way to get a fresh perspective that was previously impossible.

IT IS ALL ABOUT VISION

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Video informs and persuades better than any other media type. It is a very powerful tool for reaching an audience and making an emotional connection. Video production is a team sport, I would love to collaborate with you on your message.

KEEP IT SIMPLE. KEEP IT REAL IMAGERY WITH IMPACT


How I got here

After getting a degree in photography, John started as a journalist shooting for a Bay Area newspaper in 1973. In 1982 he began my freelance career in the Seattle area specializing in architectural - location work creating visual imagery for many Puget Sound builders, architects, interior designers, and corporations.

One of his personal passions has always been photographing nature, wildlife, landscape and outdoor adventure. Over the last 30 years he has built up a large collection of this work and sell stock images and fine-art prints for personal or commercial use.

He also began to use a video camera about 8 years ago, wanting to share his vision with more impact and emotion than still photos can do alone. John is also proficient in Photoshop and video editing for post-production workflow.

John have lived on the Olympic Peninsula for the last 36 years, and considers it one of the most beautiful places in the country.

One of my proudest personal accomplishments has been to produce with my partner Jessica Plumb, a feature length documentary film on the dam removal project on the Elwha River, located here on the Olympic Peninsula. That was a experience of a lifetime, and we have won rave reviews and awards for our efforts. You can learn more about "Return of the River" by visiting the film website at www.elwhafilm.com
