“So much of what I’ve learned about natural landscape photography came from reading Outdoor Photographer over many years,” said Johnston. “So to be published in that magazine means a great deal to me.”
Johnston’s photograph of South River Falls was displayed locally in 2004 during his solo exhibition “Shenandoah Waterfalls” at Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts in Binghamton.
Johnston’s latest work is on exhibit in “The Photography Show” at Windsor Whip Works Art Center’s upper gallery, located at 98 Main Street in Windsor through August 1.
JW Johnston teaches Beginning Photography (ART112) and History of Photography (ART146) in the Communications and Media Arts Department. He also teaches Continuing Education photography classes . He owns JW Johnston Photography and conducts independent workshops. His annual Weekend Workshop Intensive is scheduled for August 14-16 in Whitney Point.
Johnston was profiled in WSKG-TV’s Artist Cafe program in 2013 in a segment that has aired across the country.
