John Toolan

Director of Photography - Producer - Visuals Editor

Hi, I'm John. I just completed a nine-year run as photo director at Field & Stream and Outdoor Life. I've been working in photography since high school, and love it just as much now as I did then. My priorities are working hard, laughing frequently, and taking pride in a job well done. I find to-do lists soothing. I love being part of a team. I'm super organized. I make lots of sketches. I've worked hard to build great relationships with a broad array of photographers. Assigning, research, budget management, conceptualizing, networking, and contract negotiations all come easily to me. This is a great job, and I'm lucky I found that camera in my dad's drawer all those years ago.
