StudioNSFW is my Mad scientist lighting lab - we use projectors, fresnels, softboxs and scoops, sunlight, candles - were a one stop creative outlet.  Our methodology and techniques are informed by classic Hollywood film lighting but we have fully embraced a modern digital workflow.  I seek to use light to sculpt evocative images of beauty and grace.  Light is the medium, the tools used to record it are my brushes.

"I had a lot of fun working with John and I'm delighted that we created some beautiful and unique photos! John has a vision and a plan and works methodically, but at the same time is easy going and relaxed. We did some classic portraiture as well as some interesting experimental images. I hope to do more shoots together!" Read less
