Transcript of John Shaw

John Shaw
Although he has picked up his first camera before high school, he started photography professionally in 1971. But this picture shows the professionalism of a person who takes pictures not with his camera using his eyes, but with his heart as well. His photos are clear, concise and highly informative. He believes you should spend as much time possible learning about photography as you spend capturing and processing images.
John Shaw

John Shaw showed his interest in photography while growing up in a small village surrounded by farm land at the age of 12. He was fascinated by birds and started bird watching. John Shaw, a professional nature photographer since 1971,(At the age of 40) has many publications in the most popular nature magazines such as National Geographic, National Wildlife, Outdoor Photographer and many others.

Major Influences
John Shaw was influenced by many nature photographers whom he used to admire especially in his early years. He tried desperately to copy their style and quality but as he grew older, seeing other photographers' work ,he started following his own inclinations and photograph in a more artistic manner. On the other hand, his work and books especially are considered a major influence and a guideline to photography as he is an expert and a professional.
Style of Photography
Specific Work
John Shaw likes to take picture at the very last light of the day, with the sun on the horizon. If earlier, the sun would be far too contrasty and too harsh, if later , there wouldn't have been any light, so here it's directional, but soft and warm- he called it sweet light.
