Born and raised in the Midwest, John Amatucci founder of Amatucci Photography has always been an artist. Starting with a disposable camera, John was able to capture a story in the most simplistic or most complicated of scenarios.
Living on his own at a very young age, John began working at a Fox Photo in a mall processing images. This experience allowed him to explore his talents even further. He purchased his first real camera (Minolta) at a pawn shop and his eye for photography has never been the same.
Not only is John able to do what he loves for a career, but he also has the luxury of being able to work with others by combining his vision and theirs to tell a story through art motion and stills. John is grateful that through his career as a commercial director of photography, he has been able to explore rare parts of the world. One of the most unique aspects of John’s career is his opportunity to experience behind the scenes of many different business operations and the production process of many different products. Whether it is experiencing how a luxury cruise ship, airlines or manufacturing operates, John values these experiences as much as he does his art.
However, when hiring John you will not only be hiring an incredible artist but someone who is adept at managing multiple aspects of a motion + stills. Between directing talent and strategically preparing his gear for travel, capable of bringing to life any concept your company or organization has envisioned. When it comes to style, John prides himself on his lighting techniques making his work look naturally beautiful in any environment with motion and stills.
