John Keatley has swapped photography stories with Annie Leibovitz, taken geography lessons from Sarah Palin, and learned to craft the perfect cocktail with the best bartender in the country. He’ll climb a tree, fight off a snow monster, or bury someone in kitty litter; all in the name of getting the perfect shot, and that’s just before breakfast. John is known for putting even the most camera-shy individual completely at ease in front of the lens. His quick sense of humor and down-to-earth outlook are what allow him to connect with his subjects and create dramatic images.
His celebrity portraits and advertising campaigns are balanced with his wide range of personal projects as well as his work on international awareness campaigns, such as a recent trip to Liberia to work on a clean water initiative. John’s work is regularly recognized for awards, including American Photography, the PDN, and Communication Arts Photography Annuals.
