About The Photographer: John Morris Photography

I understand photography as both a science, and an art. It is both technical and aesthetic. Landscape & Travel photography requires a mastery of technique, a natural eye and a personal style. It can be learned or self-taught, trained and/or a natural. Landscape & Travel Photography requires persistence and spontaneity, planning and flexibility, discipline and creativity and yes, even a bit of luck.

As cliché as it sounds, travel & landscape photography has always been a part of my life. Gazing with amazement at photos in my parent’s National Geographic collection, I got my start on a lifelong journey in photography with my first camera gifted to me by my father when I was 12-years-old.

I have a love of learning, a jones for history, a need to be outdoors and a longing to travel. Landscape & Travel Photography is the perfect discipline that brings them all together for me.

I enjoy mountain biking, kayaking, travel, and anything else that challenges me. I’m a decent  cook and whip together a mean breakfast. If I wasn’t a landscape & travel photographer, I’d probably own a roadside diner or food truck and be the short-order breakfast cook. Fortunately, I earned my commercial photography degree instead and took the creative route with no regrets. -John

John Morris Photography

Capturing long rows of winter trees lining empty fields of farmland. To this day, winter inspires me to want to shoot, activating some inner muse that stimulates my creative jones. But I also see natural beauty in grand vistas and small details. Landscape photography embodies my ‘chase the light” mentality and despite hours and days of patient disappointment and miles of endless walking, scoring that big scenic, or capturing a one of a kind grand sunset, that is what the chase is all about.

Man-made structures have always attracted me photographically. In fact, my first award was an image of a grain silo entered into a scholastic art competition. I am drawn by the colors and textures, parallels and angles, the juxtaposition of old and new, glass and concrete, and the harmony of nature and man. We are after all a product of the natural world. A fact we forget sometimes.

Seascapes are a new love of mine. Just something about the sounds of the waves, the fresh smells and variety of light that transforms the ocean as it passed before my lens.  Admittingly, I also just like to be near the water in the morning. It’s peaceful, calm and other Zen shit like that. On mornings where the light isn’t particularly great, I just get to enjoy the walk. Of course, a part of me feels unproductive, but at the end of the day, I have nothing but positive vibes about being there.

A new journey allowing my eye and my vision to lead me to create images for myself and hopefully images that others will find invokes an emotion, feeling or memory that they can experience for themselves as they view my images for the first time.

San Diego is a magical mixture of Landscapes, Seascapes and Cityscapes and I return again and again to the same locations always finding something different.
Wow, another cliche. (At least I didn’t call it my passion).
