John began writing stories and making Kodachrome images as a boy and honed his skills at the Ernie Pyle School of Journalism at Indiana University. While serving as Ambassador of Goodwill to New Zealand for Rotary International, he formed a lifelong passion for making images that transcend the ordinary and for capturing stories of the people he encounters. In more recent years, he has accomplished advanced studies with celebrated photographer brothers, Peter and David Turnley.
He founded John Gevers Photography and New Media Brew in 2002 and has been awarded numerous Telly Awards for excellence in both image capture and in video editing. His fine art giclée and aluminum sublimation prints are held in private collections, found on walls in organizations that resonate with his view of the world, and are available for purchase through this website, by contacting him, or at the Paradigm Gallery in the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Fort Wayne, Indiana. John is twice the recipient of the Individual Artist Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Indiana Arts Commission.
John is rooted locally in Middle America but travels nationally wherever stories and clients call.
