John first experienced photography as a child when, on special occasions, he was allowed a 35mm film camera and a roll of film. The resulting photos were, well, awful; but it was the low ember that grew into a firestorm of passion for creating beautiful, evocative images.
In addition to commissioned works John pursues a number of deeply personal projects. Living in Hiroshima, Japan inspired him to shoot a semi-documentary project called HIROSHIMA where he presents a modern city the world only knows of through war. A lifetime of strange prejudices and funny looks inspired ASIAN, which looks at the differences and similarities of people who call themselves “Asian”.
When not working on personal projects John can be found at Harustudio a small studio of photographers and cinematographers devoted to creating engaging photos and film for wedding, family and commercial clients.
John is available for a variety of assignments, please contact him for details.
