My name is John Caughlan and my wife Missy and I reside in St. Cloud,
Minnesota. I have been taking pictures of the North Shore since 2002.
In the beginning I used an old Pentax 35mm film camera. During this time
I learned about lighting, composition, and developing an "eye" for an image.
In 2004 I purchased my first digital camera, a Nikon D100, and since
then I have added some new cameras and lenses to my camera bag (which now
weighs over 50 pounds). I love the outdoors and enjoy camping and photographing
Minnesota's dramatic beauty. I also enjoy portrait photography and have
photographed over 50
weddings. I have also published two coffee table books on the North
My goals include to challenge my photogrphy skills and to continually seek
out new subject matter. I have learned over the years that it is not about
how many images you take, but how well you capture an image.
