Profotos Staff Evaluation:
John Gress's work in commercial and photojournalism/documentary photography can be described as "vivid, heart-wrenching, and captivating", adjectives which describe the best of the best in this area of the medium.
One of the most difficult aspects to master in this area of photography is capturing the action at just the right moment. While many photographers can document the happenings of people and their surroundings, very few can capture the excitement and exhiliration experienced at the height of the action. The "moment" may only last for a few seconds, or even the fraction of a second. To be this good takes a lot of talent, skill, determination, and experience. John Gress has all of these under his belt, as a seasoned journalistic photographer.
Our staff was very impressed by the flawless compositional style John employs within his images. Distracting elements are nowehere to be found within John's compositions, which are nearly perfect in every way.
If you enjoy high action photography, then this is the portfolio for you. John Gress is a master at this area of the medium and this is one portfolio you need to see!
