Born in Japan, John Slemp was a world traveler before he was a teen. After attending college on a 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, and the world’s best art was a spellbinding tutor. Fast forward twenty-plus years, and his wide-ranging photography experience allows him to create still life, portraits, and landscape images, all within the aviation genre. He’s now a recently licensed FAA drone pilot too, which has been incorporated into our offerings. Light, shape, and composition are the tools used to create images for a wide variety of editorial, corporate, and advertising clients worldwide. Down to earth, pragmatic, and easy to work with, his goal is to bring out the best each project has to offer. A great sense of humor is an added plus, which keeps everyone on set loose and lively. Task oriented, he’s organized to a fault, which streamlines the workflow...and allows his experienced production team to remain within both time and financial constraints...always a plus. As an aside, he’s a big fan of dogs, fly fishing, and a good cheeseburger. Strangely, 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, been seen globally, and hangs in a number of private and public collections as fine art.
