John has enjoyed success as a professional photographer for almost a quarter century now. His passion for his craft and ability to capture that passion through a viewfinder has resulted in many of his images appearing in advertisements, such as for Olympus, as well as books, magazines, and other literature. John worked as a photographer for the United Nations for 20 years and visually documented what he saw during his travels to more than 100 countries to help raise awareness of the many struggles and triumphs that occur in our ever-changing world. Throughout his storied career he has received numerous national and international awards, has worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Luciano Pavarotti and Audrey Hepburn, and has been heavily involved with UNICEF efforts.
Born in Brazil, Najat grew up in between the mountains of Lebanon and the skyscrapers of New York. Her diverse upbringing helped shape her desire to travel the world. Leading workshops, she has introduced many groups to photography while still exploring the cultures and diversity of the more than 40 countries she's visited. Her gift for languages (she speaks Arabic, Spanish and English fluently and a bit of Dutch and Portuguese) has enabled her to put people at ease through out her travels. She enjoys the opportunity that workshops give her to meet different types of people and introduce them to the beauty and marvel of the world. A huge believer in giving back, she is dedicated to supporting local charities throughout her travels. Her work has appeared in NY Times Magazine, American Photo, Financial Times, Interior Design, Popular Photography, The Editor at Large, HGTC.com, Trail of Inspiration.com, mocoloco.com and Oprah.com.
