January 2013 exhibit-John Johnson
John F. Johnson was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating from Tufts University and Columbia University, he joined the Ford Motor Company and, later, General Electric Company. For the majority of his career, he has been in the executive search business, working at two leading firms. He is still actively involved in this endeavor.
John and his wife moved to Naples in 2001. He immediately recognized the varied and plentiful opportunities in Southwest Florida to view nature through a lens. He also learned about the many species found in this part of the U.S.
John travels extensively to photograph wildlife. Much of his efforts are centered on birds in flight, with a special interest in the nesting and feeding behavior of eagles. He has a great appreciation for both migratory birds and the year-round “residents” in their various stages of plumage.
Once he retires, John plans to expand his travels in search of other wildlife photography opportunities.
