As a commercial photographer, it’s incredibly important to know what makes a great picture. Just having a nice camera and fancy tools isn’t enough to capture the kind of powerful images that make the heart race.
It starts with a keen understanding of the brand. It requires technical expertise and a special eye -- one that knows the specific challenges inherent in delivering the money shot. The result is unique. Personal. Arresting.
Great commercial photography demands attention, drives action, and ultimately moves the needle. That's what John does.
