Photographer and retired investment banker
John spent his professional life in the world of investment and finance. Director of research for a New York Stock Exchange member firm, he also worked for nearly two decades as an officer and consultant to the Harris Trust and Savings Bank in Chicago.
John’s photographs have appeared in many natural history venues—including Chicago’s John G. Shedd Aquarium, the Center for Marine Conservation, the Lincoln Park Zoo, the World Wildlife Fund, and Wild Bird magazine. They also reside in many private collections throughout Europe, Australia, and North America. John’s earliest images document mountain climbing expeditions, but he soon turned his lens on other remote regions around the globe. His pictures underscore both the biodiversity and fragility of life on Earth.
John has served as treasurer of the Copley Healthcare Foundation in Aurora, Illinois, and as the Illinois State Director for the Nature Conservancy. His passion for the living world brought him to LCF.
