John Weller's career in photography began quite by accident when he purchased a digital camera for his wife's birthday in 2004. Largely self-taught, he has supplemented his education attending workshops by Stephen Johnson and John Paul Caponigro. After nearly 30 years working in the technical fields of engineering and network administration he decided to pursue photography as a full time endeavor in 2012.
Weller shows his award-winning photography at juried art shows throughout the mid-west. He won First Place - Award of Excellence in the Levis Commons Fine Art Fair, and Honorable Mentions in the Wyoming Art Show and the Rising Sun Festival of Fine Arts & Crafts. He also won an Award of Excellence Award from Manhattan Arts International in its "New Beginnings" 2016 exhibition, and a Honorable Mention in 2015.
His work is installed at the Artist Lounge, a gallery where he serves as the board president. John's art can be found in private and corporate collections.
