Phil JohannesPhil Johannes brings forty five years of experience to his craft of photography. Initially working with black and white film in his own darkroom, Phil evolved over time to master and utilize all camera and film formats: 35mm, 4x5, 6x7 and 8x10. In the 1970’s, he returned to college and studied photography at the College of Marin under Thomas Johnson and Timo Pajunen. At one time, Phil owned and operated a photography business specializing in portraits, families, commercial work, and professional color printing.

Today, Phil Johannes uses digital photography and methodology, from camera to computer to finished hand printed Giclée print. He believes that a successful photographic image must be simple and straightforward, yet have a quality of mystery and ambiguity. The overall mood of the image, which is enhanced by an acute clarity and an effective use of tone and color, is of ultimate concern.

Phil has spent a lifetime in the air. After ten years as a United States Air Force fighter pilot, he embarked on a career as a commercial airline pilot for Western and Delta Airlines spanning almost three decades.

A Summa Cum Laude graduate of Arizona State University, with a dual major in Anthropology and History, Phil Johannes has lived in four countries and six states. He and his wife have twins, with three grandchildren.

Phil Johannes is available for commissioned work.
