John E. McDonald was born and raised about 25 miles northwest of Atlanta, GA. He graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photographic Imaging. John and his loving wife, Abbigail, currently reside in his hometown of Kennesaw, GA.
John's initial interest in photography surfaced during a class in high school. In his youth, he taught himself to draw from comic books and was always taking classes on ceramics, drawing, and other mediums. Photography became John's concentration during the years after high school when rock climbing and live music consumed his life. After bouncing around Georgia, John, Abbigail, and their pup, Nico, have landed back home. John loves shooting anything involving lifestyle, the outdoors, people and their stories, and food (because food is delicious). Any down time results in never ending home improvement and a quick hike at the nearby mountain.
