About the Author

John Tobison

Hi! I'm John Tobison and I run Nordic Light Photography. I do this work to satisfy my passion for photography and for the joy of watching people's face light up when they see a person or event that's important to them captured beautifully in stunning images.

I strive for a predominantly unposed, candid look in my work. I love capturing those spontaneous and unguarded moments where people are relating to each other genuinely and showing their emotions - a dynamic moment in a business gathering, that look of parental love, a child's surprise, a head thrown back in a big laugh. That's what makes an event worth remembering and the pictures worth coming back to time after time.
