This is the blog used to operate John McGeough Photography. I also use this site to provide preview posts of photo shoots for clients.

I would like to welcome you to the blog for John McGeough Photography. The blog will be growing in the future as I add and finalize the style and look. I am a self-taught photographer. I have been seriously pursuing photography for about 20 years. I'm a retired teacher and ordained youth pastor so I now have more time to pursue my art with new dedication. I use Canon equipment exclusively. Currently, I us a Canon 50 D body with several lenses in order to meet the needs of portrait, stock and commercial photography. Project photography is a favorite of mine. I really love to pursue a subject, learning as much as I can about it while thoroughly documenting it. Presently I am working on a project involving old, historic churches in the Greater Houston Metroplex out to about 100 miles. This is the location where I will post proofs of photographs for my clients, examples of my photographic work and a record of my life as a photographer.
The human hand is so expressive. The hand is so complex and beautiful. The entire life of a person can be revealed by the hand. Does the hand show the roughness of a lifetime of hard work... the dexterity of one who performs delicate tasks with precision... the tenderness of a mother holding the hand of her child. I try to include photographs of hands with every session. The most treasured picture I have of my grandmother is a picture of her hands crossed on her Bible.
I look forward to growing as a photographer with this blog and through my work with my clients and projects.
