Who's Who in the Sun City Camera Guild - John Wood

Posted

John Wood, the current president of the Camera Guild of Sun City, was born in Pennsylvania and was always intrigued by his dad’s box Brownie. After moving to Phoenix with his family in 1966, a friend introduced Mr. Wood to serious photography.

Mr. Wood processed his first roll of film and was hooked for life. He has worked as a commercial/industrial photographer, shot freelance work, digitally restored old photos, and managed a large format color print department involved with outputting large color photographs, signage and banners, both in Arizona and back east.

Mr. Wood has been a member of the Professional Photographers of America and Industrial Photographers of Arizona and is a current member of the Photographic Society of America. After retiring and moving to Sun City, photography as a passion remained a part of his being.

Joining the Camera Guild offered a chance for Mr. Wood to share his knowledge and connect with like-minded photographers. That sense of community is all he could want out of the Sun City experience.

“Photography is all around us,” he said, “waiting to be incorporated into our life experiences. I have been lucky enough to mesh photography into my life.”
