John Langford

John Langford, GSR’s principal portraitist, grew up in Hong Kong, attended college in the U.S., and currently lives in Austin, Texas, where he is always planning his next adventure.

His career as a photographer blossomed when he sold his worldly goods and, carrying only what he could fit in a backpack, spent three years traveling 38 countries on six continents on a life mission to capture images and collect stories to tell. John published stunning photography and anecdotal travel books from his solo odyssey around the globe. See more of his work at
