Insightful. Personal. Professional.
As a performing artist and entertainer who has seen him work from both sides of the lens, these words most accurately describe John W. Ward's Photography to me. Insight is defined as "the capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a person or thing." This insight truly shows through John's photography of myself and the other artists I perform with onstage. I am consistently amazed at John's incredible ability to 'capture the moment,' making any particular photo so candid and personal, yet with a keen eye towards lighting and composition. That professionalism combined with his own artistic sense of expression create photos that are honest in their interpretation but not judgmental, and represent some of the most accomplished and visionary photos of our performances. John's passion for the photographic and musical arts (and of course The Cleveland Browns!) are inspiring - he is not only a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with but also an invaluable part of my "musical family."

John has done and continues to do an amazing job capturing more than just an image. His work has captured the energy and spirit of our live show. He is professional, creative, and a pleasure to work with.

The photos of pOUT from The Savannah are amazing! You captured the excitement in the room, our passion, and even our unique facial expressions!!! Marvelous job, as always!

Working with you is an honor! Whenever I show up to a "Brothers Blues Band" gig and see that you are our photographer I know that I am going to have some new phenomenal profile pictures!!! Your photos convey a perfect blend of artistry and reality, and each one tells a story! I look through them with awe!!! I look forward to the next batch!
