My journey into shooting fashion, portraiture, and fine art female nudes began more than 10 years ago. The most rewarding aspect of what I do is helping emerging and established models develop their professional identity and presence by creating high-end, portfolio quality images.

I absolutely love working with creative teams of makeup artists, hair stylists and designers. The collaboration process with other creative professionals produces fun and unique results that benefit everyone involved, including the models.

Some of my favorite shoots over the years, however, have been the minimalistic ones, where the model wears simple clothing and little makeup. I adore the simplicity and rawness of such collaborations... It is an honor to bring out the personal strength and natural beauty of the woman I'm working with.

My work has been published in several boutique magazines (VOLO, Petite Magnifique, Editorial, Innocent, Model View, Uncovered and BeauNew) and on many online blogs (The Woman Book, Model Mayhem, boudoir-photography, model-vizzion, -- body art --, skynmagazine, theportraitpr0ject, themysterypr0ject, culturalfotograpfica.es, and nuderetouching.com).

My images have earned over 20 million worldwide views across several online platforms. I am currently located in Maryland (East coast of the United States). And just a tad bit more... Some of my other creative interests include filmmaking, writing (non-fiction and novels), acting and drawing.

Check out some of the excerpts and testimonials below to learn more about me and how I work...


I simply ADORE working with John!

I always look forward to our shoots because I know we're going to get killer shots. I've worked with John on numerous occasions and have never been less than delighted with the outcome.

He's not just skilled at photography -- he's a jack of all trades! He's designed and crafted one-of-kind sets and wardrobe pieces.

All of this creativity ensures a unique perspective and thrilling shoots every time! I can't say enough good things about my experiences working with John and highly recommend him! Tina Mari

John Dunnigan's photography is pure artistry.

Thank you for providing me with such incredible photographs to update my modeling portfolio. I'm so excited to give you the true recognition you deserve for my recent success! After sharing your work with several top New York modeling agencies, I was offered not one but several contract offers in NY! You captured exactly what they were looking for in a model's portfolio... reflecting diversity in look, age ranges and my abilities that I can deliver to clients.

I'm still in such disbelief as I have worked so hard and fought for so long to reach this point.

I will be forever grateful for your time, talent and guidance. Your wonderful, kind, "funny" and friendly personality provided such ease and enjoyment during my shoot; allowing me to relax and to be the best I can be! Allie Rueter

(Translated) In the editorial area, the work of John P. Dunnigan is focused, making magazine photography an avenue for (creative) interaction... It is there where he channels (the elements) that characterizes (his) photography, uniting it with the presence of brands that long to work alongside the photographer... - Culturafotografica.es

John P. Dunnigan’s photos surely draw people’s attention. Thanks to his perfect eye for the beauty of women’s body and skin retouching skills, his photography works are extremely popular all over the internet. There’s much to learn from him. - nuderetouching.com
