John has been an RPS member for many years, and we look forward to having him back as a judge for this month's theme of "Glass."
In 1980 John started using photography in connection to his art background to create color images. By 1984 black and white prints became his specialty. Today, John uses photography to create fine art black and white and color prints expressing his thoughts and artistic vision.
Until 1990, 35mm was his preferred film format. Today John uses medium- and large-format negatives and digital files to bring a new and different look to his work. A uniqueness of composition, contrasts, colors and tones comes from formal art training starting at age 11. Formal art courses continued through his undergraduate studies. Although photography was not the first medium used as an expression of creativity, the early artistic training combined with photography gives his images a unique visual and emotional presentation.
