Self Portrait

I am a full-time photographer with experience working in the private and government sectors documenting news, lifestyle, commercial, and corporate assignments for use by 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 the Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com.

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 any of that, 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.milwww.flickr.com/usnavyresearch or by contacting me directly at john.f.williams3.ctr@navy.mil
