John’s involvement with photography has lasted for more than a quarter of a century, although schooled in the use of film John embraced the digital age very early on. He describes himself as a discerning photographer who sees digital imaging as a tool rather than a box of tricks, a photographer whose images are linked by a natural instinct for subject arrangement and attention to detail. His approach to photography is spontaneous – seeking to recapture for the viewer the same mood and atmosphere that drew him to the subject in the first place.
As an enthusiastic exhibitor, John has been fortunate in having many of his images accepted into British Photographic Exhibitions .
In August, 2010 John was awarded his fourth British Photographic Exhibition Crown Award (BPE4*), having gained more than two hundred acceptances in UK National Exhibitions. In December of the same year he was awarded a distinction from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (DPAGB).
John also enjoys repeated success in many of the International exhibitions and was awarded his Artists distinction with the International Federation of Photographic Art (AFIAP) in March 2010 and is now awaiting confirmation of his EFIAP application, due in March 2011.
