John Dowling Photography has been serving the corporate, advertising, and editorial markets in Central New York since 1981. Specializing in assignment and stock photography on location and in the studio, John brings the highest level of technique and artistic expression to every assignment. The former staff photographer for the Syracuse Newspapers has a Masters degree in Photojournalism from Syracuse University and over twenty-five years of experience in photography.
The stock photo file maintained at John Dowling Photography has been an essential source of images used to market the area for tourism, economic development and corporate recruiting. Scenes of the city and surrounding landscapes, sports and recreation, cultural activities, education, housing, and health care form the basis of the collection. Always interested in expanding the file, John “self-assigns” photos of places and events to update the file and seeks corporate assignments which supply the file with photos representative of industry and community services. These “stock” images have been useful in a number of different projects including the Onondaga County Travel Guide, the Community Guide, the New York State Travel Guide, various magazines, the lobby of the Hancock International Airport, and numerous trade show displays.
Always interested in increasing his client base, John shoots for the New York based photo agencies Black Star and Liaison. Assignments for these agencies have added some impressive names to his list of satisfied clients and publication credits including Subaru, DuPont, General Motors, Corning Glass, HBJ Publishing, Sports Illustrated, and Newsweek.
The John Dowling Photography is presently expanding into digital imaging. Much of the stock photo collection is currently available on Photo CD. Assignment photography using a high-resolution digital camera will be available, thereby providing the client with fast turnaround time for use in Web sites and print media. The newly acquired studio space at 1824 Grant Boulevard, Syracuse, also enables the company to offer product photography and a variety of services including publicity photos for actors, models, executives, groups, and individual and family portraits.
