John Desjarlais

I am a scientist with a relatively new passion for photography. I shoot with a Nikon D90, a Tamron 28-75, a Tamron 70-300, and a Tamron 200-500mm.

As my nickname implies, I'm particularly fond of macro and closeups - but I continually strive to expand my horizons. My personal favorites are in my "highlights" gallery. I live in Pasadena with my wife and two kids (featured in the "faces" gallery).

All images in these galleries are copyright of John Desjarlais. Please contact me at for permission to use any of the images for commercial purposes. Nonprofit sites are free to use my images with appropriate credit and notification of use.

I hope you enjoy my photos.
