The Team

John Livzey

Photography Lead—Digital Photography and Post Production

From the moment he first grabbed a camera, John Livzey realized he had found the one medium that would let him express himself completely. Whether he's photographing presidents, rock stars, the clawing scoop of an earthmover, or a spider's web, John uses his lens to speak to an unseen audience in the most intimate relationship. Famed photographyer Edward Weston once said, "Photography is the perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately." Nothing better describes John Livzey and his work. *
