About Mark DeJohn

I was introduced to Photography at the age of 8 when I stumbled upon my Grandma’s old 136mm film camera. I remember running around pretending to take pictures with it, until my Grandma started buying me film and that’s when the fun really started. It wasn’t until I got older when I realized that I had a naturally developed “mind’s eye”. It was at El Camino College where the teachers were able nurture my skill set, I then really started to take my Photography seriously. I’m an admirer of legends who’s work continue to inspire me;  Edward Weston, Vivian Maier, Robert Capa, Annie Leibovitz, Mary Ellen Mark, Ansel Adams and Herb Ritts to name just a few. Photography has exposed me to so many wonderful people and at the same time provided me with so many memorable experiences. I have two amazing sons; Aiden and Weston, a wonderful step-daughter, Gigi and my beautiful wife Angie, all of whom find themselves in front of my camera more than they probably like. Now that you know a little about me, tell me a little about yourself and let’s create some beautiful images.
