Meet John Baggaley
I'm a photographer, a public interest attorney, and a father in Washington, D.C.
As a photographer, I enjoy shooting colorful landscapes in the mid-Atlantic region. When I shoot, I shoot with the goal of producing fine art prints that I would be proud to hang in my home or in my office. I tend to prefer sunrises and scenic shots with lots of color and drama. See some of my favorites here.
As a public interest attorney, I work in the U.S. Senate Office of the Legislative Counsel. I am a nonpartisan attorney and I draft legislation on behalf of Senators and committees on matters relating to national security, veterans benefits, and consumer protection. I find my work both challenging and rewarding.
As for being a father, my wife and I are the parents of two awesome little boys, who make getting up for sunrise an extra challenge. My older son, who is now almost 4, enjoys following me around with his own little point-and-shoot camera. My boys are lots of fun.
A little more background: A native of Central California, I grew up surrounded by farming and the Sierras. I spent significant time in Boston, where I studied at MIT and later worked as a consultant at Deloitte. I also spent time in Wisconsin, where I attended law school, and the Republic of Moldova, where I served for two years as a small-business development volunteer in the U.S. Peace Corps.
Prints and licensing: Most of the images on my website are available for purchase as fine art prints, either framed or unframed, or as canvas wraps—just click on an image for sizing and price information. I also, occasionally, license my photos. I have been fortunate enough to have been published in Long Weekender Magazine and the Washingtonian and licensed by PBS and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Note about equipment:
For those of you who are curious, I shoot with Fuji X-series cameras. I used to shoot with full-frame Nikon cameras, but switched because I prefer the size and ergonomics of the Fuji cameras. The following is my basic kit, which I use for shooting everything from landscapes to portraits and events:
