About me, John Andrew Hughes, APSA, PPSA
My path in photography started early in life when my parents handed me a Kodak Retina camera and appointed me as the family photographer. I studied photography in high school and later completed a four-year apprenticeship with the renowned press photographer Charles R. Cramp FRPS FMPA ABIPP. My first published image was printed in a local newspaper when I was just sixteen.
My journey as a photographer started on the streets of London and have now taken me around the world several times. Most recent travels have included Europe, South America, Asia, Russia and the Middle East. During my time in England, I was fortunate enough to be published in nearly every major newspaper and since then I have regularly appeared in prestigious National and International magazines. I have been based in the United States since 1994 and would like to be recognized for my Social Documentary style of photography.
I am a professional member of the National Press Photographers Association. I enjoy giving back to the photographic community and have served the Photographic Society of America in several directorship positions. My work garners many acceptances and awards, which have appeared in national and International salons and exhibitions.
