About Johnny


Hi, I'm Johnny.
I'm a Seattle-born photographer, musician, coffee addict, and fun fact enthusiast. Most of my free time is spent talking about cute dogs and listening to podcasts that loosely attempt to explain poetry and the internet.

Photography is my favorite form of story-telling, and my passion for it is driven by a desire to understand people more fully. I believe that my job as a photographer is to help you tell your story, put your best foot forward, and to work with you to create images that you are proud to have represent you.

I'm thankful to have worked with more than a hundred clients, ranging from high school seniors, to fashion bloggers, to large marketing teams for national companies. Each of these jobs has been an opportunity to grow in my craft, helping me to provide products that I am proud of and that my clients are excited about!

Whether you are looking for portraits, headshots, or help in bringing an artistic vision to life, I would love to work with you! Just stop by my contact page to get in touch.

Currently operating in Seattle, Washington and available for travel nationwide.


Johnny was an absolute pleasure to work with... He was very flexible and it was clear his end goal was to turn my vision into a reality.

Johnny is a phenomenal photographer! Incredibly personable and punctual as well. He makes even an awkward person like me look natural through a lens and helped guide poses so I would know what to do
