John David Geery
John David Geery became interested in photography while a journalism student at the University of Utah in Salt Lake city. He bought a camera to illustrate the articles he was writing for the school newspaper.
He perfected his color printing techniques while working in a professional color lab in Utah. After a year, he moved to Idaho and worked for a company as staff photographer, shooting photographs for advertisements and catalogs for three years. He began his fine arts business there, and his early work included western scenes such as the Grand Tetons and southern Utah.
Originally a north-easterner, John returned to New England in 1984, after nine years out west. Initially reluctant to leave the grandeur of the western landscape, the diversity among seasons and the scenic intimacy of the east won him over once again.
After taking a photo, John spends many hours in the darkroom, fine tuning the color balance, density, and cropping until he is satisfied with the final print.
John currently resides in Clarendon, Vermont. He lives with his wife of 34 years, two daughters and two dogs.
