…because life is a whirlwind.

…because it’s ok to allow the snow globe to settle.

…because family is everything.  

…because your story has value.

…because your crazy matters.

…because seeing your life thru my lens will change you.

My name is John Waire. I’m a Baltimore based documentary photographer — a family man at heart. I strive to shine a light on the everyday moments that bind us all together. Life is rough around the edges and it’s in these craziest and hectic of times that the truest, most relatable stories present themselves. My photographic style is simple, informal and heart-felt. My work will encourage you to slow down and appreciate your life.

Go deeper. Stay longer.
