Our speaker is an award-winning professional nature photographer, tour leader, and speaker who is devoted to the conservation of wild places and wild things. His work has been published in numerous books, calendars, and postcards. His photographs are featured in private collections and galleries throughout the world.
Growing up in New England, John’s passion for wild places led to a childhood rich in outdoor adventures. He has been studying and photographing nature for over 40 years and he believes that a personal connection to nature is necessary to increase a person's desire to protect a particular species and habitat.
With a degree in Business Management, John decided to change course and align his career with his passion—nature photography. He began offering photo tours over 13 years ago and enjoys teaching and sharing his knowledge of the outdoors with others. He finds it rewarding to watch the excitement of his participants as they see a particular animal or natural phenomena for the first time.
When he is not out photographing, John enjoys kayaking, watching wildlife, hiking, snowshoeing, and spending time with family and friends.
