John Lanterman Photography

Translating what I see and feel to the final image is the driving force behind my photography. The vastness of the west, the solitude, and overpowering beauty are recurring themes.

My photography is primarily documenting what I call “the real and emerging west.” Capturing the authentic west, set against the backdrop of constant change, whether it be cultural or environmental, provides a focus for my work.  Hopefully the images remind us to protect the landscape and cultural heritage of the west.

My intention is to tell a compelling story through a photograph.  A memorable photograph conveys a sense of place, and connects people to that place and moment.
