A self-taught photographer, John Ireland’s love of photography developed after high-school when he received a Minolta camera as a graduation gift. Even early on he had a good eye for what makes an excellent photograph. John likes to think outside of the box, looking for new angles and interesting light for each shot. A bare-bones photographer, almost all of the photographs he takes utilizes only natural light and no props. Using only a 75-300mm and an 18-55mm lens, John relies on his patience and the subjects to present the perfect shot.
