My name is John and I'm delighted that you've taken the time to see some of my life's work. Hopefully we'll get to know each other and connect through this beautiful medium of photography.
A little about me, I've worked professionally as a Photojournalist, Photo Editor, Portrait Photographer, Aerial Photographer, Real Estate Photographer, Wedding Photographer, Automotive Photographer and now a Drone Photographer & Videographer.
I strive to capture beauty through my images and have always fostered a great appreciation for the natural world.
I have worked as a professional photographer for over 15 years. I learned much of my craft through the formal education of art school and by working for "The Oklahoma Daily" newspaper as a Photojournalist and Photo Editor. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2006, where I majored in Media: Film/Photo/Video at the Fred Jones Jr. School of Art and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
After graduation, I moved to Seattle, Washington and found an opportunity to travel the country as an Aerial Photographer. I flew around the United States for the next 9 years photographing real estate from a Robinson R22 helicopter. My pilot and I would fly around at 500 feet looking for pride of ownership in people's homes, farms and small businesses. I also captured many natural landscape images, aerial abstracts and aircraft photos along the way.
I worked as Merchandising Manager for two of the largest dealerships in Tulsa, Oklahoma from 2015-2020. I photographed hundreds of cars, trucks and SUV's every month in a photo booth and uploaded these photos to the web for internet shoppers to take a virtual test drive before they buy.
I'm now available for freelance photography work including weddings, engagements, portraits, parties, concerts, performances, sporting events, car shows and any other interesting events that require high quality images. If you would like images of your Car, Truck or SUV's taken to sell it online I have the experience to make your ride stand out from the crowd. Airplanes, RV's and Motorcycles are also great candidates for professional photos and will really help those vehicles sell fast.
I am now an FAA Licensed and fully insured Remote Pilot and UAS Drone Operator offering Real Estate Photography and Roof Inspections in the Tulsa Metro Area of Oklahoma.
I look forward to meeting with you and providing you with lasting memories through the Fine Art of Photography. Please reach out today and let's see what we can make together.
