John Straub Image Works
"A few miles off the highway,
A million miles from ordinary..."
This led to entering and winning numerous photo contests early on with "black and white" photography, and later by the early 80s with "color" photography having images published as magazine covers.
Now, my film cameras only collect dust and enjoy the use of digital.
As a current member of the "Motor Press Guild," "San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild," and the "San Diego Art Institute," I have the opportunity to use my camera constantly to improve my craft, whether "B/W" or "Color."
As an artist I find something magical about storytelling with a camera and being an image maker, respecting the past but unafraid of innovation. My images celebrate memories, rusted or old, shiney or new and will immerse you in their soul, color, texture, and design. They are unique interpretations of motoring emotion.
I put the same thought into my uniquely different vintage images, with interest in color, composition and quality of light, asking the questions when I shoot the image, and answering the questions when I work the images in post-processing.
Please note: All the images on the website are "Open Editions." For "Limited Editions," signed and numbered, as well as upper end "Acrylic and Aluminum Mounted Prints," please contact me.
