John maintains an unrelenting desire to help others with photography, challenging them to see in new ways and advocating a storytelling role for photography. “I want to energize my guests’ senses so they will leave my tours with a renewed confidence in their ability to capture the enchanted stories of life that will never materialize again,” says John.

As resident of Wyoming and seasonal visitor to Texas, John stays busy as a small business owner, artist, writer, bat biologist and ordained minister specializing in adventure marriages. In his spare time he maintains an unbridled passion for photography, hiking, fishing, cross-country skiing, kayaking, horseback riding, and traveling to experience wilderness areas all over the world.
Praise from Nat Hab travelers:
"John deserves a whole collection of superlatives. He was our guide, our driver, our geologist, our historian, our wolf tracker, our gear hauler and a person who made our trip one of our all-time favorites. I can't imagine anything he could have done better. He was simply the best. If I were asked to describe what constitutes a 'perfect' guide, I would say that it is someone who knows what the trip has to offer, understands what the travelers are hoping to see or do, and combines those things in the best way possible. John did that perfectly."
