John Weller's career in photography began quite by accident when he purchased a digital camera for his wife's birthday in 2004. Largely self-taught, he has supplemented his education attending workshops by Stephen Johnson and John Paul Caponigro.

Weller shows his award-winning photography at juried art shows throughout the mid-west. He won First Place - Award of Excellence in the Levis Commons Fine Art Fair, and Honorable Mentions in the Wyoming Art Show and the Rising Sun Festival of Fine Arts & Crafts. He also won an Honorable Mention Award in 2015, the Award of Excellence in 2016 from Manhattan Arts International in its "New Beginnings" exhibitions and the "Exhibitions Without Walls" Award in the 2017 "Healing Power of Art" exhibit.

His work is installed at the Artist Lounge, an artist cooperative gallery where he serves as the board president. John's art can be found in private and corporate collections.
