John Trigiani Bio
I’ve been a photographer for 25 years and photography is in everything I do, every day. It’s more than just a job for me. It’s a way of life. I feel extremely lucky being able to do the work that I do and creating images for clients that can appreciate the love and energy that goes into this passion of mine.
Believe it or not, it all started at the tender age of 7. I was on a school bus on a trip to the museum. As I was looking out the window, I saw a very cool 1972 red Corvette driving beside the bus on the highway. The first thing I did was grab my camera and shot the car while going 80 km/hr. When I got the photo processed, I was amazed at the results! While everything around the car was blurred, the image of the Corvette itself was tack sharp and as perfect as could be!
I remember thinking how incredible it was for a single moment to be captured and frozen forever, and wondering how I did that? To me, it was like a memory box, frozen in time, and that’s when I started seeing glimpses of the world in a different light, daily scenes really stood out, colours, lighting just day to day goings on. From that point forward, regular images started becoming STILL images in my mind and that’s when I truly fell in love with photography.
Over the years, I’ve accumulated a vast amount of experience and knowledge of lighting. To me, the ideal image is created through an intuitive creative feel and a sense of design, basically using shape, texture and a gut feeling.
But I don’t do this alone. It’s a collaborative effort, I prefer to work with the client to create a plan and vision and then I use my skills to make it come to life. I want to build a story with the photos, set a mood, feeling and leave a lasting impression.
