Hi, I’m John Comisky. Some think of me as a wildlife photographer (and I am), but I didn’t start out that way. In fact, up to a turning point about 3 years ago, I only shot wildlife by what I call “accidental intersections.” Originally the subjects that pulled my eye tended to be landscapes, tricks of the moment, and worlds within worlds – subjects of beauty and meaning hiding in the upholstery of the background.
Then wildlife entered my life, through my association with Napa Wildlife Rescue. It required a whole new set of photographic skills and equipment, and has gradually become prominent in my work. Now as I travel – the goal is to touch every state and continent with a few other destinations thrown in – I try to capture the soul of both place and the lives lived there, narrated in the language of the eye.
I hope you enjoy viewing my photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them, both at home and by traveling to beautiful locations to find inspiring scenes and new subjects. Photography is an art that gives in both directions.
All images on the site are my own, and are available in a variety of sizes and formats, from frame them yourself prints, to canvass, to stunning presentations on metal with invisible floating hangers that are ready to be hung. If you are interested in owning any of the images and don't see it in the SHOP, please contact me at
