John Rowland Photography

Your Bio

My name is John Rowland, and I'm a professional freelance photographer in the Chicago / Milwaukee area. Visit for my main portfolio site.

I shoot HS Varsity Sports for CBS Sports Max Preps, and NCAA and Professional sports for Zuma Press. I have been published numerous times in Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Motor Week, and the Wall Street Journal, among others. Please note that all NCAA and professional sports photos are NOT for sale through my site.

I specialize in portraits, senior photos, engagement photos, and headshots for corporate clients as well as for creatives (actors, musicians, etc.). I can shoot on location, or at my fully equipped studio in Milwaukee. I also do team and individual portraits for athletes of all ages and levels. If you are interested in having me photograph your sports team or league, cover an event or concert, or to schedule a portrait session, please contact me.

I am available for freelance/magazine work/assignments and I am able to travel. I use Nikon professional camera bodies and lenses.

Thank you for taking the time to view my galleries, and I hope you enjoy my photos.
