About John Armato 

I'm originally from Los Angeles California. I came out to Maryland in 2002 to attend The Peabody Conservatory of Music and the John's Hopkin's University. I earned my bachelors and masters degree in classical guitar performance and early music lute music. Hence the profile picture of me and a lute. I began shooting headshots for students of the business and music classes and it slowly turned into a small business.

I've toured all over the United States, Taiwan and Japan performing music from the Renaissance and Baroque with several different groups. I've performed at the German, Singapore, French, Colombian and Bolivian embassies have been featured on a number of recordings made both here and in Asia.

My wife Liz and I now run Armato Photography based in Clarksburg, Maryland. We specialize in Headshot and family portrait photography. We've had the pleasure of photographing our clients all over Maryland, D.C and Virginia. My headshots have taken me to some of the most state of the art surgery centers at Washington MedStar and Georgetown Medical to the smallest private medical practice.
