Alexandria, VA, United States
John is a photographer based in greater Washington, DC, specializing documentary, portrait and news photography. A former staff photographer at The News & Messenger (Manassas, VA) from 2008-12, he developed his versatility through daily assignments and creating award-winning multimedia.
Capturing the physical blemishes and idiosyncrasies of his subjects in the minutes, hours and days he spends with them has led him to believe we’re all a lot more alike than we first appear. He loves challenges and meeting new people, and hopes to continue to frame the human spirit with his unique and talented skillset.
He currently lives in Alexandria, VA, shooting for clients such as The New York Times, The Boston Globe, European Pressphoto Agency, The National Trust for Historic Preservation and George Mason University, among others. He is a member of NPPA and is on the board of the Washington DC chapter of ASMP.
