Beginning with his first images in the nineteen eighties photographer John Hargis has concentrated on landscape images of the places he loves. His first nationally recognized works were scenes of Fall Creek Falls state park in middle Tennessee. Those images have sold hundreds of times and they grace the walls of homes and businesses throughout America. His images of Tennessee are owned by the governor, and Tennessee's United States senators. His images have appeared in national calendars, travel brochures, and several books.
John travels extensively across this country photographing some of America's most recognized places as well as many virtually unknown areas. He also spends several weeks each year in Puerto Rico photographing old San Juan and the lesser populated western end of the island. He has lived for many years near the small town of Pikeville, Tennessee with his wife Melba, the love of his life.
The images selected for this site represent only a portion of the entire collection of the artist.
