John still lives in Cecil County, residing in Elkton, MD where he is the owner and president of Life to Lens Photography LLC.
An active outdoor lifestyle of hiking, mountain biking, and road cycling, as well as knowledge of architecture, and an artistic background has allowed John to photograph a wide range of subjects. The content in his photos is varied, professional, and personal. It includes portraits, weddings, sports, nature, landscape, night photography, and the occasional pet portrait. His artistic background has given him a unique perspective, and at times has allowed him a way to blend photography, sketching, painting and other mediums. John’s current favorite subjects are long exposure/night scenes and portrait photography on the personal level. Professionally John aspires to continue and further his photojournalism career while running his growing photography business, www.lifetolens.com.
Always open to new challenges, John recognizes that capturing a moment takes more than a camera. It takes an eye trained by years of experience to identify the lighting, lens, aperture, and exposure required to make a moment truly stand out. John uses dimension and space to capture the true essence of his subject aspiring to bring out qualities often ignored by other photographers. His work has appeared in numerous newspapers, gallery exhibits, office buildings, private homes and multiple websites including his own. John’s personality helps bring out the depth in his subjects. To him photography is not just a job, but a passion. Whether it is a school event, family reunion, pet portrait, or wedding photos, John wants to be the photographer clients call on.

My objective is to always be in a position in which challenges me and utilizes my skills and experience. Offering the potential to work for a growth-oriented company in turn delivering the opportunity for advancement and professional development. I believe every photo either has or portrays a personality, mood, or an emotion to be discovered. The image should stir some emotion through detail, complexity, simplicity, or possibly desire. Every individual will view my work and react to it differently. Whatever viewing brings about, just be willing to take the time to look.
