Meet the Staff

This Dedicated Group of People Handling Your Precious Memories

VP of Group Sales

John started his sales career at PhotoVision back in January of 1999, after being in outside sales all of his life. A trip to St. Maarten in the summer of 1998 with his wife Lee and good friends Dave & Wrenn Martinson set the stage for what is now called "Group Travel Videos".

As an avid photographer, Dave was taking pictures during their vacation. The idea of "creating a video" of their trip was brought up one day while sunning on the beaches. Martinson owned a video production business and had developed a program of using still pictures to make videos with music and special effects. They gathered their favorite 150 printed pictures, dropped in some island music, and the first Group Travel Video was created. When watching it, it was if they were back in the islands relieving their vacation all over again and it literally brought tears to their eyes. Lights were flashing with ideas as they felt this would be a perfect product for the travel industry.
