A Photographer of No Fixed Abode
So, will this nomadic photographer ever settle down? The simple answer is: I hope not! It’s great fun being a “Jack of all trades” even if - inevitably - one ends up as “master of none”. I have recently rediscovered the joy of natural history photography - something I haven’t tackled in many years. Who knows, one day I might even pluck up enough courage to attempt some portraiture again? But weddings? Never! We are fortunate, as photographers, that our passion is so universally applicable. Why bother to wear the strait-jacket of specialisation?

John’s interest in photography started at school, when an enlightened teacher started a photography class. The magic of seeing images suddenly appearing in the developing dish was, for John, a wonderful thing. From school John went on to study photography at college, passing the examinations for the Institute of British Photographers. After leaving college, John spent many years in the photographic industry and eventually opened his own studio in West London. Having rejoined the RPS in 2009, John started to work towards his Licentiateship and he achieved this in May 2010. In 2013, London Underground was celebrating its 150th anniversary, which proved to be a real inspiration for John. As a result, this was the subject for his Associateship, which he gained in April 2013.
