A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” -Laozi

Welcome to Perspective !  My name is John D. Russell and I am a Professional Commercial and Travel Photographer and your Photography Guide on every experience!

I am based in Los Angeles, CA. and have been shooting professionally since 2006. I currently shoot Lifestyle, Commercial, and Travel Photography for clients all over the world.

I am living the dream!!!

I have had the absolute pleasure of photographing mega celebrities such as Bruno Mars, Kaley Cuoco, John Legend and I’ve been blessed to travel the world and shoot assignments in exotic locations such as Thailand, Mexico, Hawaii, Israel, Egypt, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and countless others!

Perspective is my platform to share my years and years of experience and to take guests on a trip of a lifetime. I couple the 3 things I love most (travel, photographyphilanthropy) into one life changing experience. Not only will you learn to be a better photographer but I guarantee we will change the way you see the world.

My international and domestic photography workshops and retreats are highly sought after and tend to fill up quickly. I encourage you to signup for my newsletter to stay current on our offerings. Subscribers get first crack at signing up for the retreats and are often the only ones who make it in.

After you sign up for the newsletter, I encourage you to bookmark the site and check back often as daily photos and stories will be posted to the journal. Don’t forget to check out my workshops, tutorials, and plug-ins (coming soon!) and please don’t forget to share the site with anyone you think may enjoy our experiences!
