About Me

* REAL quotes from Models I have worked with.

"John is an amazing photographer it was great working with him and believing in me. Try him,he will make you famous!" -Micala Valles

"I love working with John he is very professional and a good friend I always have a blast when we shoot not to mention that his work is amazing" smile -Tiffy Mac

"John did my first shoot ever and he made me feel so comfortable! He's great at giving direction and I have a great time whenever we
work together" smile -Jannae

"I've been fortunate enough to work with jp a lot in my career. His great eye and skill have produced some of the best photos iv taken. His great sence of humour and personality always make him a pleasure to shoot with. Its always a privilege to work with him . He never disappoints: smile -Jessy Bee

"I was introduced to the modeling industry through John and I must say it was and has always been a great experience. He's a great photographer with beautiful talent and makes his girls feel beautiful inside and out. John has a mind of art and is a wonderful friend. He is THE BEST there is!" -Raquel MAC

"Johnny is the best photographer I have ever worked with. I absolutly love working with him. Unlike other photographers, I feel extreemly comfortable an confident working with him. He knows what looks good an what doesnt, and hes honest about it. I think that's what all models need. John is an all together a great guy. Very professional an funny. He makes his shoots fun. Working with him always worth while. His work is amazing. I'm always excited to see how my pictures turn out even tho I know with John's touch they are always stunning."  -Tiffany Maureen

"My thoughts on John? Well for starters he could make you famous & not everyone can say that. ;-) On a serious note though; I wouldn't have initiated my modeling career if it wasn't for him. From our first shoot to our latest he has been nothing but professional in all possible aspects. He has a way of making you feel comfortable. Thanks to him Streetlow (to me) feels more like family than anything. I trust him completely as far as knowing that his years of experience & knowledge of photography im what would best fits everyone he works with. He knows what looks good, & wouldn't dare put out anything less than perfection. Which is why plenty of models continue to shoot with him & I must say he's my main preference as well." ;-)
-Bella Amour

"I could tell right away how experienced and professional John was. He was kind and funny but knew what he was talking about! He produced some of my favorite images in my portfolio and got me published, I would highly recommend working with John if you get the chance"
-Sonya May

Streetlow Magazine is one of the top Lowriding magazines on the market today.  Staying true to the lifestyle and building on the concepts that made Lowrider it was in its prime, Streetlow has been in circulation for 14 years and continues to grow under the same owner who created it. Something no other lowriding publication can say.  Streetlow features some of the top Streetlowriders with some of the hottest models of all races.  The magazine features Chicano culture, club scenes, fashion and some of today's headlines.

I am John Pineda.  I have been photographing glamour for over 23 years now.  For much of my early years I photographed for friends who wanted either pics for themselves or were interested in becoming models.  Approximately 14 years ago, I started working as a photographer for Streetlow, a nationally distributed Magazine, headquartered in San Jose CA.  I started by covering car shows but within my first 6 months I was shooting my first cover and had a few features under my belt.  Now I have become the Director of Photography / Main Photographer, shooting the majority of the covers and several features per issue. 

Being with Streetlow Magazine I got to meet some very beautiful women, so I am still shooting Glamour work for models who need quality, with exceptional editing skills, geared towards glamorizing the photo for their portfolios.  In my style, I am now incorporating more nudity ranging from implied to explicit, depending on the models limits.

I have reasonable fees and do accept some TFP. I am confident in my ability, but not an arrogant and grumpy photographer who thinks my work is so good that I am not willing to trade work with a Model, but this is now a business for me.  With my experience, I am more than confident that our work together will add to both our ports.  As such, I personally no longer pay models for shoots. 

If Models are interested in working with me, you are encouraged to contact me and see what we can get going.  You can e-mail me at [email protected], just make sure to put "Model Submission" in the subject field.

Feel free to inquire about anything model related.

"Had an amazing time working together! He definitely ensured that I was comfortable throughout the duration of the shoot, and he really treats the model with kindness and respect. He's very open minded to ideas and isn't too picky which I deeply appreciated. Definitely a total joy to work with, I'm very glad our schedules aligned so we could finally get a chance to work together. I would absolutely look forward to working with him again in the near future :)" Read less
