He also plays bass guitar which he has played since high school in Chicago playing in a band most of his life. He has worked as a studio musician and about every genre of music from country gospel to musical theater.

"John was a great instructor. His passion for flash photography and knowledge of various flash equipment and accessories made this a rich class. I appreciated his sense of humor and ingenuity to resolve the shortcomings of flash equipment by showing us some of his creations. I appreciated the hands-on time to implement what we've learned and the ability to try various light modifiers. John was great about checking in with each person to see if they needed any help or answered questions about particular issues we may have been encountering with getting our composition just right. The small class size was great for accessibility to the instructor and getting to know other folks in the class."-Araceli F.
