Hi, I'm John Tobin, an award-winning, published photographer mixing elements of Photography, Art and Graphic Design.

I have over 25 years of photography behind me and 25 years of photography still in front of me. I’ve been blessed to have photographed over 15,000 children and more than 6,500 families in addition to numerous Events, Commercial Photography, Lifestyle and Product. I have enjoyed positions with several national and regional portrait companies over the years as Photographer, Trainer, District Manager, and Vice President.

As a specialist I am neither a "natural light" photographer, or a "strobist". Experience does not limit me to one or the other (often the best light consists of both). Whether the location requires sun, shade, strobes, reflectors, or a combination of light modifiers, I use what is necessary for premium results. This comes from a rich variety of experiences with people of all ages, crafting images with light and lens. More recently I have focused my photography on compositing and graphic art skills, and as you revisit this site you will see that this passion is growing. And growing. The Art Montages are my favorite creations.


In addition I enjoy doing events and setting up my studios on location, giving people high quality photography and products even in a volume-photography settings.
