10 Years I have been on deviantART. Hard to believe I stuck around here this long, but a big difference 10 years makes. Went from the idiot trying to draw to a well developed photographer. Went from working with broken equipment to top of the line equipment. Went from mediocre to award winning in real life. It all started here.

While I remember all the people who supported me, I shall also remember my critques and I will not mention IrRational-Eyes by name... Oh crap I did... I will admit he was right I do suck, no matter how many awards I win or publishing I achieve, I will always suck at photography lol. He used to give me hard times during my new days when I had to rely on a 3MP POS camera lol. He is not on dA anymore of course lol. I know it was long ago but still something to reference lol. Won't catch me stabbing myself in the eye for attention lol.

Other than the fact I am not currently employed in my profession I am happy where I am now.

United States
My name is Joseph W. Johns. I've been on this site since July 2004 and it's safe to say that this is the site that made me a photographer. I'm also a former Midland Valley High School yearbook photographer, where I took pictures of sports and other school events. I graduated in the class of 2009 and won the school's "Spirit of the Mustang" award for my work. I also graduated Aiken Tech then The University of South Carolina Aiken. I was a sports photographer for the campus paper Pacer Times.

In this gallery you'll see a variety of different photography and photo manipulations from 2004-present. For photography I have nature, automotive, railroad, urban, and many other categories.
