John became interested in photography to share the natural beauty he observed in his travels. With a degree in photography, he began working in 1973 as a staff photographer for a newspaper in the San Francisco area. Moving to Washington State in 1979, he began to photograph the new natural playground.

In 1982 John began his business, Doubleclick Productions, providing photography for architecture and location work. After many decades, John has come full circle in his career and now focuses his attention on landscapes, people, adventure, wildlife, and nature with a still camera, drones and video.
