Hi, I'm John.
I am an Austin-based freelance photographer and roaming vagabond specializing in street, landscape and travel photography.
In 2018, I made the decision to step away from the traditional track of a successful career of seventeen years to focus on my creative endeavors and pursue a different path - one that with each step places me closer to my passions full-time.
Risky? Perhaps. Worth it? Without a doubt!
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” captures precisely what my photography is meant to serve as 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 Sony A7r mirrorless system and glass, paired with DJI drones for aerial photography and video. My ultimate goal is to be adaptable to meet both my personal style and the goals of my clients.
Contact me directly for interest in discussing how we can work together, or partner on creative collaboration.
