About CourseJoin Mia McCormick and John Keatley as they sit down to discuss John's inspiring career as an advertising and celebrity portrait photographer. John has developed a style that is as fun as it is creative, and yet very real. John has photographed celebrities, athletes, and politicians, and his work has appeared in publications ranging from Rolling Stone to Wired. Spend an hour learning about how John got started, how he developed and stays true to his style, how he's dealt with some of the fears all creatives face, and so much more.
John Keatley has swapped photography stories with Annie Leibovitz, taken geography lessons from Sarah Palin, and learned to craft the perfect cocktail with the best bartender in the country. He will climb a tree, fight off a snow monster, or bury someone in kitty litter, all in the name of getting the perfect shot. John is known for putting even the most camera-shy individual completely at ease in front of the lens. His quick sense of humor and down-to-earth outlook are what allow him to connect with his subjects and create dramatic images. John has been shooting professionally since 2001, working with agencies, publications, companies, actors, artists, and luminaries the world over. He has an itchy trigger finger.
