The Welder

Neil Johnson


"The Welder"
While on a personal project to photograph a steel plant in Shreveport, Louisiana, where wind turbine towers were being constructed.

Biography: After graduating from Washington & Lee University with a degree in journalism, my grad school became a photo lab where I discovered my “eye.” I went behind the camera in 1980 to shoot magazine, stock, industrial, aerial, performing arts, advertising, commercial portraiture, studio, product, books. My exploration of the world is both personal and professional and my personal and commercial photography feed hungrily off each other. I love this medium. It’s way too much fun. I can’t stop. What other creative medium's tool will take you around the world?!
