John Wellburn was born in Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada. At about 2 years old John got ahold of his mothers art supplies and began to draw and paint.  Eventually his creations began to look like something and it was obvious that art would be in his future.  It wasn't until his late teens when John's travels began and a desire to document his adventures became a necessity.  Soon after that a camera and a notebook made their way into his hands.

Adventurous and curious, John's career has been led by passion and the desire to travel to unique and exotic locations, to put himself in places where most people won't go. John is specialized in action sports, but also moves through other kinds of photography such as fashion, dance, travel, and nature, always pursuing experience and complementary techniques.

John believes that the camera is but a tool to capture the moment, tirelessly he will keep searching and finding that perfect light and breathtaking scene to practice his craft and keep his photography constantly evolving.
