John Teer is a native of South Africa. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1998 and is proud to tell anyone who will listen that he loves America. John took up photography several years ago. Under the mentorship of photographer Robert Hansen, he feels like he has finally developed the competency to express himself through his photographs. John also enjoys listening to a wide array of music; cooking, especially for family and friends; riding his motorcycle on the windy roads of California; and traveling across the world, especially to great scuba diving spots. He is a technology geek who is addicted to his laptop and iPhone. John lives in Southern California with his wife, Suzanne, and his two sons, Alex and Josh.
