Hi, I'm John.

I am a London-based freelance photographer and roaming vagabond specializing in street, landscape, and travel photography.  

 

In 2019, I took a sabbatical from a successful career of seventeen years to focus on my creative endeavors - a decision that proved invaluable to advancing my passion for captivating visuals and stories.

 

Was it risky?  Perhaps. Worth it?  Without a doubt! It taught me to derive a healthy balance between my career aspirations and the artistic expression that fuels my downtime.

 

Since taking my first “big” trip years ago to Europe, I have been consumed with deliberately exploring unique locations both home and abroad to uncover the cultures and underlying spirit that reveals the unique lifeblood to a place.  I explore the best way I know how - one foot in front of the other and utilizing my camera lens as a portal to some version of interpreted truth. My photography is meant to instill a personal feeling unique to each observer and to share a story.  

 

“Fernweh” is a term of German origin that captures precisely what my photography is meant to serve as a reminder of - the burning desire to explore, go further, learn and embrace the vibrancy of life. 

 

As any photographer will share, the gear setup is ever-evolving and fluid.  I currently shoot the Fujifilm mirrorless system and glass.  My ultimate goal is to be adaptable to the tools that help craft my personal style.

 

Contact me directly for interest in discussing how we can work together, or partner on creative collaboration.
