Hey guys and gals. ABOUT FRIEND REQUESTS, I'm all for networking but PLEASE say hey first, or message me, or comment or something. If nothing else, it shows that you took the time to read at least one paragraph! =^)
Plus, friends need introducing don't they? =^)
Usually... unless you are willing to pay for my time, love to you all, but seriously, TFP/TFCD is REALLY VERY unlikely. Please get in touch, message me directly and let me know where you're at. If you are available when I have a creative idea that I want to go and do, who knows, we could end up with shots nobody has seen before!! Would be great to have a feel for who is wanting to work with me and what you'd like to make happen. But in all honesty, I am not going to continue to stick my neck out for folks who expect me to work for free then flake the day before the shoot. Sorry, my time is more valuable than that and if you are going to last in this industry, you need to be more dedicated than that. I organise a shoot and I clear my schedule for the day. If you're not willing to do the same, you aren't taking yourself or myself seriously.
(End rant. Grumble over) =^)
Check it out.
John is on FACEBOOK (no big surprise there) but feel free to add my page, and if you really like, send me a message and introduce yourself. Thanks everyone.

I take photos that are honest, natural and say something about the individual in the shot.
Taking the time to establishing a comfortable rapport with everyone I photograph means that the results are personal, intimate and memorable.
Photography should be more than just making someone look beautiful or photogenic. It should be about capturing something of personality, someone's mannerism, all the things that make you individual, unique, memorable.
The world is full of beautiful people. There is always more to a person than just their shape or look. No person should ever be cheapened to glossy eye candy. It is an individual's story that makes them beautiful and being able to capture that which makes my work memorable.
Whether it is your portfolio that needs new headshots, fashion snaps, or promotion/performance work captured, if you are needing good photos that show who you really are
, then please drop me a line here.
: I am always keen to hear from new people and new faces. I'm not always in creative mode and I don't always have the time to set aside to do free shoots. If you feel like you enjoy my look, email me, tell me what kind of shots you would like to make happen, link me to a recent clear headshot and body shot and who knows, maybe we scheme something up. =^) Can't promise anything but doesn't hurt to ask. =^)
Even if you don't think you can afford to work with a professional, ASK ANYWAY! I can talk to you about my rates, we can throw around ideas and even if nothing comes of it eventually, I'm certain that if you are taking your work seriously, we will probably end up bumping into each other somewhere along the line anyhow. Let's work with each other here!! =^)
All that jargon aside, comments, feedback and random hello's are most definitely welcome.
I'm not a perfectionist, I'm an expressionist.
Thanks for reading,
