Johny Luc better known as “Redlight” in the photography world is a Haitian born photographer based in South Florida. Born and raised in Jeremie, Haiti until he migrated to the United States at the age of 16. Johny was first captivated by photography when he watched his older brother take pictures with a 35mm Kodak camera he owned. With absolutely no intention Johny would pick up this camera and take pictures of people as he would like to call it “life happening”. He loved what he saw when the photos were developed and people around him especially his family started to take notice of his talent.
As Johny furthered his education first graduating from Miami Edison Senior High, Miami Dade and later Florida International University with a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering his real passion photography remained. “I still remember when I decided to take my passion for photography to the next level, I would offer to photograph people for free whether it was family portraits or Haitian parties called “Bals” just for the opportunity, training and experience it would bring.” In Johny’s words “Photography chose me.”
