John Wesley Hopper
Walnut Creek, California

John's uncle, Dick Morgan was a photographer in the U.S. Navy during WW2 and served in the Pacific filming air battles and shipboard events. Uncle Dick went on to be a professional photographer in Hollywood and LA as well as teaching photography and as Dean of Men at East LA City College. Uncle Dick encouraged John in his early (age 12) photo attempts and instilled a life-long passion in his nephew for the art of photography.

John followed Uncle Dick's path serving in the U.S. Navy Air as photomate, and continued in a semi-professional career as an advertising photographer, editorial photographer and photo-chronicleer of lifestyles, travel and Americana.
