John Adair is a photographer, student, and a visual storyteller. He has worked as a social media manager, photojournalist, and event photographer. His goals as a photographer are to have published works the form of photobooks and to make a change in the world through his photos.


His works have been featured in a solo exhibit with SMAG (South Mass Art Guild), a collaborative exhibit at Henry's, the Auburn Art Gallery, and published in Denali Magazine, The Torch, and The Pitch KC.

At the age of 30, he is a current student at Lane Community College in Eugene, OR and photojournalist for Doublesided Media. A former semi-trucker, he left his job to pursue a career in his passion for photography as it is the only form of work that offers him any sense of fulfillment and purpose.
