John Decker is JohnThePhotographer, an award winning photojournalist and photographer with more than 20 years of experience peering through camera viewfinders capturing special and historic moments.

John Decker
His work has appeared in newspapers and magazines around the globe including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Time, USA Today, Stern, the Associated Press, Bloomberg News and many others.

He has been a member of the staff of some of the most prestigious news organizations in the country including: the New York Times, the Sacramento Bee, the Detroit Free Press and the Bergen Record of Hackensack, NJ.

Relying on his years of experience in photojournalism, his wedding, commercial and event photography have a distinctive and authentic journalistic and documentary style that comes from years of creative visual exploration.

Decker also has a master’s degree in visual communications from Ohio University, considered one of the best graduate and undergraduate programs for photojournalism in the country.

Many photographers claim to shoot in a photojournalistic style, but very few of them have ever worked as a photojournalist. If you really want that photojournalistic/documentary style of photography then be sure to hire a photographer who has the experience that your job requires.
