HI! My name is John Borys and my passion for photography began in 2005 while spending the weekend in Downtown Chicago with my lovely wife. The sites of the city, the people, and the perspectives called to me.
In 2006 we traveled to St. Thomas and the British Virgin Islands. My love for capturing exotica locales and the wildlife, and culture found in them, exploded. I have been taking photographs and honing my skills ever since.
My photography is influenced by my travels, my life, and my family. I hope you enjoy my work.
I attended High School and college in Wisconsin, though I have lived in the Chicago area most of my life. My travels have taken me from Belgium to Belize, Alaska to St. Lucia, and Chicago to Cabo. My love for the arts has influenced my life and my work.
After a life changing event in 2013, I began photographing horses and fell in love with all things equestrian. Currently, I am the Lead Photographer for the famous Tempel Lipizzans in Old Mill Creek, IL. and have been the Official Photographer at many Dressage and Hunter/Jumper Equestrian events. I have photographed Dressage Clinics by former Olympian Jan Brink, and Conrad Schumacher. I continue to specialize in portraiture, from private one-on-one sessions, to large group events. I hope you can see my love for horses and people in the portraits and images I capture.
I currently reside in the Northern Illinois with my wife and two children.
“I love your eye and the angles you choose. The quality is very good. I also like the special moments you choose, the artistic ones ..... those to me make the best memories that a rider would want to hang on too.”
