About Me



   Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter. 

   ~Ansel Adams

      I'm John Pierce.  I retired and relocated to Portland, Oregon from Seattle Washington about 11 years ago.  Retirement has allowed me to devote full time to my first love - photography.  The beautiful Northwest has afforded me abundant and outstanding opportunities to be able to create beautiful and interesting images.
My photographs have won various photographic competitions, been published in a calendar, brochures, made into several photographic books as well as enjoyed by numerous people like yourself. I have also taught Photoshop CS to photographers.
     My first love is landscape photography but I am constantly trying to expand to other forms of photographic expression.  I currently use digital cameras exclusively as the capture medium and Photoshop as the "digital darkroom". I do all my own printing, mounting and matting up to a 13 inch by 19 inch image (20 X 24 matted).  I use the "glicee" method of printing to ensure the integrity and quality of the image.  Larger sizes are printed by a photo agency.

     As I tell my wife "When it ceases to be fun, I will not do it anymore!"
