"NikonNet is pleased to honor the images and extraordinary career of John Solano in this June's 'Legends Behind the Lens,'" said Tracy Mack-Jackson, Senior Manager of Internet Development and Programs at Nikon Inc. "With his creative vision and attention to preparation, it's no coincidence that he manages to capture the most vivid memories time and time again."


John Solano - Wedding Photographer
Known for his ability to anticipate a memorable photograph, Solano began his career in wedding photography at 16, when he was hired by a Los Angeles based wedding photographer. His entire career, in fact, is due to thinking way ahead. At 16, Solano took a photo class and watching the picture start to develop in the tray was all it took. He knew exactly what he wanted to do, and it was photography. After receiving his photographic training at the Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, CA, Solano embarked on a career that would make him one of the most sought-after wedding photographers in Los Angeles. In fact, his lens has even captured the images of numerous celebrities throughout the years from Andre Agassi and Brooke Shields, to Slash of Guns 'n Roses, Tracey Gold and many others at a wide variety of events.

Photographing weddings is like photographing sports
However, it's still that ability to anticipate that makes Solano's work so special. He'll tell you that photographing weddings is a lot like photographing sports. "They're both about anticipation, action and reaction. If someone gives a toast, there will be a reaction. If someone tells a joke, I'm looking for where the laughter is going to come from." Like a sports photographer, Solano often works from a distance using long lenses. "My whole thing is to be unobtrusive, to really not be seen," he says. "The biggest compliment I can get is someone saying, 'I didn't even know you were there.”

Preparation begins long before the wedding day
What he's looking for are the pure moments when things happen, and when the key people at the wedding react to what's happening. In his opinion, that preparation begins long before the wedding day, when he meets the couple and establishes a chemistry with them to understand what they are looking for in their photographs. Whether he's capturing a glowing bride or the groom's reaction, John Solano is recognized as a legend among wedding photographers.
