John Baker began his career filming skiers on the slopes of Aspen, Colorado. With a passion for fast-paced adventure properly honed, John moved into the television industry, where he produced a variety of commercial, documentary, sports, and reality-based programs for multiple Fortune 500 companies.
John's projects took him from the Indianapolis 500; to the Kentucky Derby; to the crazy roads of the Baja 1000 working for Aspen based, Freewheelin' Films. Stints in San Francisco and Los Angeles included documentaries with former Miss America winners and Olympic ice skaters under the stars with Wayne Newton in Las Vegas!
When the space program beckoned, he answered the call. After a 19-year career as a senior producer/director at Lockheed Martin Space Systems covering over 90 rocket launches, including NASA missions to Mars, critical U.S. Air Force and DoD missions, and whatever else appeared on the final frontier, John left Lockheed Martin and created John Baker Productions and then Launch Control Productions.
John is excited to pursue his next chapter as he lifts off with Launch Control Productions, covering the aerospace world from his base in Denver, Colorado.
