About the Author

John came to photography and writing in a roundabout way. Growing up in Iowa, he was always interested in Colorado and was able to attend Colorado State University to study zoology. Still in search of mountains, he received his master’s degree in entomology from Washington State University. Eager to return to Colorado, he visited Boulder and decided this was where he was going to live. After eight years of scientific research related jobs, he took the plunge into photography and writing. When buying a 4 x 5-inch view camera, it was suggested he become a photographer’s assistant, as a way to learn his new craft. Such an invaluable experience, he wrote his first two books entitled, The Photographer’s Assistant, one before the digital revolution and the second one after. John has photographed many commercial and editorial assignments, both in the studio and on location, while photographing for major photo agencies. This led to his third book, Mastering Nature Photography. When asked to photograph Boulder, Colorado: A Photographic Portrait for the first time in 2006, it was a dream assignment. This book was followed by Denver, Colorado: A Photographic Portrait in 2007. Over the years John has had the good fortune to photograph many locations in the U.S. and Europe, but nowhere has he found such friendly people, in such a beautiful setting as Boulder. John and his wife still live in Boulder and have two grown daughters. He teaches extensively and leads private photo tours and workshops in Colorado and Utah. He can be reached at his website
