Fotoritim e-photo magazine

ever hear of it? for most of us in the US, maybe not so much. it's produced in Turkey. i was approached late last year to contribute, and after checking out the site and the quality of the photographers, i jumped at the chance. i highly recommend a visit. only some of the artists' text is translated into english, but needless to say, the photos speak for themselves. for those of you making it all the way to the end of the feature, note that the image of yours truly was made by my son, giancarlo. he did a fabulous job working with a very narrow depth of field and a finicky subject, no?

Very nice work, John! Having worked with you so briefly at Nemo, I didn't find out you were chasing awe-inspiring landscapes when you weren't herding cats for large companies. Now to bookmark your blog.

Happy shooting!

Great article and so nice to have such a number of your stunning photos to accompany it! Your son did a great job with capturing a very "human" portrait of you, too.I l liked the summary about you as well, and am pleased to hear your main focus is art instead of "security and savings" - highly overrated I think! We find getting by on smaller income in order to spend more time on our art makes for a very happy life.

hey Lori,

thanks for the wonderful comment! yep, the never ending search for "security" or permanence where none exists in reality can get pretty old. i find that staying focused on art keeps me open to actually seeing, which brings proper perspective to the "security and savings" part of life...
