Garth WoodsWHO

Garth is best known for his photos of Jazz artists, and is a member of the Jazz Journalists Association (JJA). His work has appeared in music publications, press kits, CD covers and liner notes, websites, magazines, and newspapers around the world. Avoiding "posed" and "staged" photography, his approach has always been journalistic, striving to capture photos that possess both beauty and moment.


If you seek to capture a milestone in your life with timeless photos, Garth's low-key approach will not interfere with that moment. Anyone can buy a camera, but looking through the lens with a lifetime of experience is what makes a photographer. Garth's eye and ability to find the meaningful shot make him a great choice for people seeking a natural and real way to document their special event.


Garth Woods is not selling you a 'package.' You are simply hiring a talented photojournalist. You will receive your digital images after Garth has carefully reviewed, edited and cropped them, which are yours to keep forever. You can then make your own prints or books, as you want or need. You are hiring Garth for a block of time. It's that simple.

It's the perfect way to have amazing and beautiful photographs without all the undue expense. No pressure, no hidden costs, no upselling! Simple. Elegant. Meaningful.

Based in the Pocono Mountains of PA

Garth WoodsTestimonials

  • They are absolutely Gorgeous!!! Better than I have ever thought they could !!!! Your photos are amazing!! Thank you so much Garth!! . - Nicholl

  • We have some bright, crisp, and beautiful wedding photos thanks to Garth. Our wedding was small, outdoors, and planned only about a month before the event. We were thrilled that not only did Garth squeeze us in for a half day shoot, but that he gave us quality photos, with a very short turn around time digitally, and all for much less than what he probably could have charged. But the most important part is that we - and our families - loved the shots and were so glad to have hired a professional. I'm sorry it took three years to post this review; we just bought a home (and had a baby) and I was hanging pictures, and that reminded me to finally do this. - Lori M.


  • -Garth, Amazing photos!!! You really executed an outstanding job with our moments in time. For this we are truly grateful for allowing you the opportunity to display your talent at its finest. From the Lewis Family we bid you blessings in your endeavors to come!
