About John Wiley

I've been fortunate to be a Seattle based photographer since 1985.

I've seen a lot of changes in 30 years. We've gained some things and we've lost some things. Still I'm always inspired by Seattle's constant evolution. 

I'm thankful the many natural areas surrounding Seattle have changed little. Mt Rainier is just as grand, the Olympic Peninsula is just as wild. There is always more to explore than you have time for.

 Speaking of exploring,       I was fortunate to travel with my wife and daughter to the country of Namibia in the summer of 2015. We spent a month driving and camping in this rich and rugged land. Although we encountered many amazing and wonderful people, animals, and landscapes, we realize we barely scratched the surface of what this immense place has to offer.  We were also lucky to make a brief foray into the Okavango Delta of Botswana. The contrast between this vast water environment, and the vast desert of Namibia was truly stunning.

I hope you enjoy these photographs, and that they convey a sense of this beautiful and unique place.  If you have any questions about this work, or would like a print, please call, or send me an email. (206) 329-4750, email,     Thanks, and keep on exploring.
