Meet Johnny in New York City

My work in photography is a natural extension of my desire to tell stories. I've always been a nostalgic and a romantic, and I love that my work allows me to express those traits in such a meaningful way. I can't wait to document your time in NYC and make a lasting contribution to your story!

Three Things

  1. I'm also a musician and filmmaker. Many of my friends and colleagues are also in creative fields, so we're often collaborating and lending a hand on each other's projects!
  2. I can't live without my guitar! Give me a beach on a warm summer night with a guitar and a good group of friends and I couldn't be happier.
  3. I love to travel. I've visited Europe three times, having spent time in Italy, France, and Switzerland. Outside of my home, Florence is my favorite city in the world (and actually where I first studied photography).

Favourite Place to Shoot in New York City

My favorite location is DUMBO in Brooklyn -- it offers gorgeous cityscapes and green spaces, and the views of Manhattan are spectacular!
