John is a photographer based in greater Washington, DC, specializing portrait and editorial storytelling. 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 time 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 Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, Starbucks, Der Spiegel and George Mason University, among others. He is a member of NPPA, The White House News Photographers Association, and is the Co-President of the Washington DC chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP).

Ana Humphrey recently won the Regeneron Science prize for her mathematical work on discovering exoplanets, planets outside our solar system. Humphrey, 18, created a mathematical model that analyzed the gravitational stability of multi-planet systems around other stars and identified locations in these systems where there might be missing planets. Humphrey graduated TC Williams High School in June 2019, attending Harvard University in the fall and plans on publishing her mathematical model.
