Self Portrait

I am a full-time photographer with experience working in the government and private sectors documenting news, lifestyle, commercial, and corporate assignments for use by both internal and external audiences around the world.

I currently work at the Office of Naval Research where I produce still and video products which document how science, innovation, and cutting-edge technology benefits Sailors and Marines. Prior to that, I worked for Philadelphia Newspapers, Inc., as a photo editor and multimedia producer supporting Philly.com, The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News.

My goal on every assignment is to produce creative, honest and marketable photographs that will best tell a story, foster brand awareness or convey a client's message.

More than anything however, I just enjoy taking pictures, discussing photography, and especially sharing what I've learned with others through my Blog and YouTube channel.

I have also had the privilege to teach both graduate and undergraduate photography courses at Temple University in Philadelphia and I continue to lead and participate in photo walks and workshops whenever possible.

If any of this is of interest to you, or you would like to license or purchase* any of the photographs on this site, please contact me at john@jfwphoto.com.

*Most of my commercial photographs are publicly available for use and can be downloaded at  Navy.mil, DVIDSwww.flickr.com/usnavyresearch or by contacting me directly at john.f.williams3.ctr@navy.mil
