about

John has spent too many years of his life in front of a computer and actively avoids anything digital.
He takes photos using traditional film cameras, hand developing and enlarging the film in his darkroom where he listens to music on vinyl*. His prints are completely handmade.

Shooting primarily in black and white his work centres around bringing together large format images of landscapes with 35mm/medium format street and documentary photography.

John is terrible at writing (particularly biographies) but hopes to tell stories and inspire through his photography.

*actually, streams 6 Music on an iPad.
