Photography by John David Geery

John David Geery became interested in photography while a journalism student at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. He bought a camera to illustrate the articles he was writing for the school newspaper. John perfected his color printing techniques while working in a professional color lab in Utah.

After a year in the lab, he moved to Idaho and worked for a company as staff photographer. He shot advertising and catalog photographs for three years. He started his fine art business while living in Idaho, with a collection of western scenes including the Grand Tetons and southern Utah.

Originally an easterner, John returned to New England in 1984, after nine years of living in the west. He was initially concerned the east wouldn't be as photographically inspiring as the grandiose west. While totally different, the great diversity of seasons and intimacy of the eastern landscape quickly won him over.John's photographic technique and equipment has evolved over the years.

While living in the west, he used medium format equipment, as the larger negative seemed to match the larger landscapes. East coast shooting lends itself to 35mm, for the ability to work quickly and still capture details. John considers his most important piece of equipment to be a tripod.

After taking a photo, John spends many hours in the darkroom, fine tuning color balance, density, and cropping until he is satisfied with the final print.  He is also currently working in a "digital darkroom" to produce his new work.

 ABOUT THE PHOTOS
Notes from John David Geery

I custom print each photo either directly from a negative in a traditional darkroom, or from a digital file to traditional photographic paper via an outside lab. (Depending on how long ago I took the photo!)  I run numerous tests before making a final print.  This ensures color quality is exactly what I wanted when I took the photo.Photos may be ordered either matted only, or matted and framed.    The matting is a light gray, acid free mat by Crescent.  I permanently mount photos on a foam core board.  The frame is a pewter metal frame of high quality. I hand sign and title each photo. 

Here's a sample of how a framed piece looks:




Matted photos do not include the frame, just the matting. You may frame to your own taste and decor.
