John William spent the summers and holidays of his youth in Knowlton, swimming and sailing the summer away and skiing the Glen through the colder times.
As a young adult he ventured down-under to Australia to Sydney, where he worked his way through his Bachelors of Fine art Photography, Masters of Art, and then Masters Art Administration. Interspersed with the academics were myriads of photographic and artistic exploits and adventures.
Sadly, 2009 saw the end of the Auzzie adventures and John William found himself back in Montreal. At some point, John William was spending more time back in Knowlton than Montreal, and a move was planned.
Leaving Montreal behind, John William moved full time to Knowlton, setting up first in A La Carte, and then in Belles Choses when it opened at 305 Knowlton Road, . May 2014 saw John William move into 61 Maple Street, setting up his studio and hosting Open Studio Exhibitions Saturday mornings throughout the summer months.
John William’s work is exhibited at Belles Choses , where a new works are presented every month.
John William does not hesitate to take advantage of opportunities to travel, cameras in hand, to capture the locations where fate takes him.
