Bio: John Peters – Photographer – Owner
It is always good to be able to start out on the right foot and I was very fortunate to have been able to take a Photography course from Art Wolfe in the early 1980’s as I was beginning to get really interested in photography. I believe there are great pictures to be taken available at any time. My strength has been my ability to visualize and compose great pictures. My images are largely of landscapes and a flora as I am an avid hiker but I have also captured some wonderful images from my travels throughout the US and Europe.
In the last several years I have become very creative in the digital darkroom to compliment the images that I am capturing. I am presently shooting with a Nikon D700 with a variety of lenses.
Growing up the son of a patternmaker, I developed a love for woodworking early in life. However, it wasn’t until recently that I truly developed an appreciation for the inherent beauty and uniqueness that each and every piece of lumber offers. While I love spending time in my workshop and daydreaming about my next new creation, my duties as husband, father, and fulltime engineer take priority. We love building family memories here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, whether we’re hiking, snow skiing, sea kayaking, or simply spending time with Juneau, our 120 lb Newfoundland puppy.
All woods are hand-selected, with special attention towards gnarly figures, rich colors, knots, or other unique characteristics. Frames are designed with contrasting wood species and assembled using non-traditional joinery to accentuate the joints. To preserve the natural beauty of each wood species, only clear finishes are used.
