John McGregor's relationship with the camera started with his father Stephen. Steve used to spend what seemed like hours composing family portraits. "Ok, just one more shot guys, I promise!" To an adolescent John, this meticulous behavior appeared more than a tad compulsive. As an adult John now recognizes that compulsion in himself as a drive for perfection.
John has a BFA in Photography from Penn State University. As a photojournalist for the Centre Daily Times newspaper and the Associated Press, John has shot everything from Big Ten football to John Stewart stand-up.
Now living in Brooklyn, New York John concentrates primarily on fine art photography as well as doing freelance video and video editing for such clients as NetFlix and Sony BMG. You may see him selling his work in Union Square Park. Say hi!
I was drawn to John's photograph of Five Points - (5Pointz) - a gallery space in Brooklyn for street artists. And he also has wonderful and unusual photograghs of the Empire State Building, Coney Island and the even the Ringling Brothers Circus elephants walking across a highway overpass to Madison Square garden in Manhattan.
