I'm John.

I'm a commercial photographer based in Colorado. 

I work with many popular outdoor companies and can help your brand sell more products with stunning outdoor lifestyle photography, outdoor product photography, and gear reviews.

I absolutely love what I do. I'm so glad you are here and it is my hope that I can provide tons of value to you!

Whether that be through the visual content I produce, the love of the outdoors that I write about, or through the gear reviews and tutorials that I publish, my goal is always for this stuff to encourage you in your life; to help you accomplish things that you never thought you could.

Most people who know me well would say I have an adventurous spirit. I think that is true but it's also complimented by a life of responsibility and a commitment to excellence in all that I do.

I'm confident that you will find me to be consistently honest, reliable, and trustworthy.

From grass-roots


As a Colorado native, I have decades of experience in the outdoors. Hiking, Backpacking, Skiing, Mountain Biking, and Photography are some of my favorite activities. In addition, I owned and operated one of the first skateboard and snowboard shops in Colorado, so I have had extensive experience working with outdoor brands.

One of my favorite things to do is travel. I am just 5 states short of having been to every state in the U.S. In addition, I lived in China for 3 years and have traveled to many places internationally. However, there is still so much to see and do. Can you relate?

Creating powerful imagery

for brands.

Over the past 10 years, I have been freelancing as a commercial photographer, gear reviewer, and drone operator with an emphasis in the outdoors. I enjoy shooting outdoor lifestyle, landscapes, outdoor action, and outdoor products.

I'm not looking for social media stardom or a huge number of followers. Instead, I'm focused on teaching others and forging lasting relationships with outdoor brands and the amazing people that make up the outdoor community.

I am constantly inspired by brands that create positive social and environmental change. They challenge me to examine how I live my life and the products I choose to photograph and review.

As I learn about how I can improve myself and the people around me while giving back to this amazing planet, I would love for you to join me on this journey.
