I am a photographer based in Colorado who specializes in nature, rural/country lifestyle and retro themed images.  I have always been rather fascinated with photography since I was young...I remember my parents using an old 110 Kodak and I getting in trouble at the ripe young age of 6 for running around the neighborhood and taking pictures of all my friends, using up all the film. I guess I started taking photography a lot more serious when a class in it was required towards my BFA in Illustration at Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design in Denver. It was a traditional B&W film class, and I fell in love, deeply, and it was that love for photography that later on would have me going after a career in it instead of illustration. My images are very diverse, from hotrods to waterfalls, from mountain peaks to the city streets. If it looks interesting to me I will shoot it. In many of my images, I try to capture something that will evoke an emotional response from the viewer; I want to have an image that the viewer can relate deeply to. My images have appeared on the covers of phone books, CD covers, inside magazines with interviews about me as a photographer, and on calendars. I am always thrilled when I am approached and very humbled...there is no greatest compliment to an artist than having their work published or their prints sold...to think someone wants my work hanging on their wall pretty much floors me. Most of my work can be found on My website and I can be contacted there for inquiries on prints and stock. I also have a photoblog which I keep as well.---John
