John Carlson

John Carlson studied photography and film at the prestigious School of Visual Arts in New York City. He has been an independent producer, director, cameraman, and editor working on educational and promotional films and videotaped productions for organizations such as the Wildlife Conservation Society and The Floating Hospital since the late 1970’s.  

A native of New York City, John has worked on films from Africa to Alaska concentrating on subjects that illuminate human interaction with the natural world. His interest in this topic took him on a 500-mile expedition across frozen tundra in the Arctic, and a 6-month, 2000-mile walk from Georgia to Maine along the Appalachian Trail, where his audio diary was a bi-weekly feature on National Public Radio.  His work has appeared on venues including most of the major networks, The Discovery Channel and National Geographic. Currently he is directing a 12 part series, Movement in Architecture, that uses film and dance to explore the human dimensions of architecture; producing The George Thomas Story, about Civil War General George Thomas; and co-producing Women Hunters, a documentary that looks at how women are redefining their place in America.

He makes his home in Cambridge, New York, where he owns and operates General Films and is a partner in EarthRising Communications.
