Welcome to the photography of Stan Johnson, a photographer with almost 40 years of
professional experience. Here are just some examples of Stan's professional, personal,
experimental and fun photography.
The concerts are arranged more or less alphabetically.
You can start with the following brief biography or click on a page in the list to the right.
Stan Johnson began taking pictures as an information specialist in the U.S. Army at
Fort Knox, KY, and Herzogenaurach, Germany. Following the military, Stan graduated
from Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, NY and the University of South
Carolina in Columbia, SC.
Stan worked for several years as a journalist and photographer for newspapers in
South Carolina and New York State and then as a film processor for film labs before
becoming a school, wedding, sports and event photographer for various photography
studios. Currently, Stan works for Carlyn Studios of Schenectady, NY.
Stan's work has taken him to elementary and high schools, colleges and universities
throughout the eastern United States from Maine to Florida, where he has
photographed thousands of students. The photography has included portraits of
college and high school seniors, elementary school children, class groups, sports
teams and action, proms, family portraits and corporate events.
During this time Stan also photographed more than 300 weddings.
Stan has recently begun photographing and writing for two entertainment websites:
Nippertown.com and Vintage Rock.com.
During his career, Stan photographed with 35mm, medium format and 70mm film
cameras and processed black & white and color negative, slide and microfilm. He also
printed most of his own black & white prints. Since his conversion to digital technology,
Stan now uses digital cameras, both Canon and Nikon, and edits images using
computer programs including Photoshop.
Stan's interest in music began with seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan and eventually he
became a bass player in bands and in jam sessions at various open mic nights. At
some point Stan also began photographing musicians, although he has only
photographed a fraction of the concerts he has attended.
Lately, Stan has been using a Wacom pen & tablet to combine comic-book style
illustration with photography. Stan is experimenting with images that are neither exactly
photography nor illustration, but a bit of both.
Stan now lives in the Mohawk River Valley and travels throughout the capital region of
upstate New York and beyond for photographic adventures.
