John H. Hughey, an award-winning fine art photographer, entered the field in 1970 under the direction of Michael P. Smith in New Orleans following academic study as a painter/sculptor. After leaving New Orleans in 1973 and moving to Denver, he began involvement in commercial photography. In 1977, John returned to the field of fine art. He moved to the Northwest in 1980, settling in Western Washington.

John’s photography has shown in exhibits throughout the country in galleries and museums and is in public collections in King County (Washington), Oregon Health Sciences and the city of Hekinan, Japan through a Sister City program, along with private collections.
