About Me

I moved to LA from Ohio and I am building a network of talent for various projects.

I work in TV but do "still" work for personal/art gallery showings and am currently building a new portfolio to solicit commercial clients.

This is my creative release.

Like many artist when an idea hits I sketch and story it out and then choose the right talent based on the look I am trying to achieve. As a result I don’t generally use just one model but have a group, both male and female that I like to collaborate with.

If we work together the project will always start with a production meeting over coffee or lunch on me to talk about what the feel is going to be, go over story boards, locations, makeup, wardrobe, get your input etc.

It's also good for us to check each other out and get a vibe. Lots of strange folks in this business.

Open for collaborations with models, MUAs, stylists and other like minded creators.

Please include the following, as much as possible:

1) a link to a current full body picture (unfortunately not everyone's port is up to date)
2) link to your portfolio of work (MM page is fine)
3) what city you live in
4) if you are traveling to Los Angeles, what dates are you available to shoot
5) attach any inspo images as reference to kind of shoot/look you want to accomplish

And last but not least HAVE FUN!!! We are making art :-)

"I loved working with John! He is a great photographer, creates a fun, easy going, and very comfortable safe space to collaborate and work with. Helped provided me with food, drinks, and makeup /jewelry and props since i didn't have much of my own. He always makes sure you're respected and comfortable. He makes the "job" fun and worth it! I'm definitely going to work with him again. Btw ladies! - He prefers to meet up in advance from the shoot date, to get to know you and talk business, so don't shy away from that because its the safest & smartest decision to do. He's worth working with and making a good friend of." Read less
