John W. Telford was born in 1944. He is an outdoor photographer known for his acute color perception. He is currently a professor at Brigham Young University. Although essentially self-taught, Telford earned an MFA from the University of Utah where he was the supervisor of photography at Educational Media Services. He also taught at Westminster College, the Salt Lake Art Center, Hill Air Force Base, and Kimball Art Center. Telford’s photographs have appeared in Fortune, Stern, Communication Art, and People magazines (the latter fortunate enough to employ John as “regional photographer“).
