About Hillary Johnson: 

I believe that photographing wild places quiets the mind for listening deeply to what we and our planet need; that it’s critical to bear witness, to believe in the power of the possible. I believe that the right photographs can speak volumes and help create change through connection, community and conversations, even the hard ones.

As a purpose driven photographer, I’m especially into helping tell stories for companies, organizations and individuals (especially bad ass female entrepreneurs) who are doing good. I specialize in making portraits for people who know they gotta have ’em but for whom actually being photographed is right up there with a fear of snakes and death. Together we change that narrative and create an experience that’s empowering, totally fun and leaves with wicked killer pictures of your authentic, amazing self.

I also teach mindfulness and lead contemplative photography retreats with my husband, Ving Tsun teacher, martial artist, Matt Johnson.

I’m based in Chicago and Bayfield County, WI on Lake Superior.

Thanks for stopping by. Let’s talk about YOUR project and how to make it happen.

Every time I do a job, receive a commission, I donate equivalent services to someone who needs it. Think head shots for young people just out of school looking for their first job. Puppies in need of adoption. Things like that.
