Born in Japan, award-winning photographer John Slemp was a world traveler before he was a teen. After attending college on an academic scholarship, he served in the US Army stationed in Germany, and out of curiosity spent many hours visiting well-known museums throughout Europe. Little did he know that he was preparing for a life in commercial photography, with the world’s best art being a spellbinding tutor.
Fast forward twenty-plus years, and his extensive photography experience allows him to create a wide variety of images including environmental still life, portraits, and lifestyle images. Light, shape, and composition are the tools used to create images for a wide variety of editorial, corporate, and advertising clients worldwide.
Easy to work with, his goal is to create the best images possible for each assignment. A great sense of humor is an added plus, which keeps everyone on set loose and lively. As an aside, he’s a big fan of dogs, fly fishing, and a good cheeseburger.
Oddly, he likes cutting the grass too, as it offers time to think..and we cut a lot of grass in the South. His work has won several industry awards, including three times being selected for the Best of ASMP competition, and as a 2020 Editor's Pick in the annual Aviation Week photo contest.
His fine art work hangs in a number of private and public collections, which he continues to actively exhibit.
