John came to Dallas in 1978 fresh out of Pasadena's Art Center College of Design.

John is known for his dramatic lighting style and meticulous craftsmanship that has not only helped build successful design, but also made his name a fixture in national and international award shows including ADDY, Communication Arts, the New York Art Directors Club, Print's Regional Design Annual, AR100, and the ARC Awards for Annual Reports. This list could go on and on, but it already has. When given general directions for a shoot John is one of the few photographers who can come back with exceptional images.

John once hiked 14,000' Mt Shavano in Colorado with his daughter Jessica. The same sort of drive that kept him going for over 10 hours has enabled him to produce exceptional work for clients such as TGI Fridays, Pepsi, Neiman-Marcus, Dave&Busters, The Home Depot, Pier-1 Imports, American Airlines, Nokia, IBM, Steinway & Sons, Motorola, Verizon, Pottery Barn, and Hilton Hotels.
