Los Angeles, California based John Luker works as a Director of Photography in Hollywood. Turner Network, A&E and PBS have been his clients, and he was up for Emmy consideration for the film "Louise Brooks; Looking for Lulu" that he shot for Turner Classics. His portfolio shows off his love of jazz. “Photography was always an avocation until I was shooting a documentary on the life of Lionel Hampton, the late, great, big band leader. At that point cinematography and still photography intersected. I realized that what I try to transmit as a motion picture, can be expressed just as succinctly in one frame. Ever since, the camera doesn't leave me”.
