About Me

Born in 1946, John Hooton left home for London aged just 17, to study photography by working as a photographer's assistant. Commencing as a messenger boy in an artwork photo copy studio, he soon found a better position as a messenger in a Fashion, Food and Advertising Studio. This studio employed top photographers, including Barry Lategan who took the first photos of Twiggy, and Ian Williams who was a master technician when using large format cameras to shoot food ads. Eric Mandel, a former photography teacher at London Polytechnic, was the senior advertising photographer and taught John, now an assistant, all about the finer points of black and white printing and the importance of overall technical quality required in professional work.

In December 1966, John was assisting John Cowan in Milan on a shoot for Italian Vogue and decided to stay in order to establish his career as a photographer. He began by shooting model composites while learning the language. In 1967 he shot his first magazine cover aged just 21.

Although semi retired, John still takes a keen interest in photography, now favouring digital techniques. If you are a model looking for test shots for your portfolio, or you have a business/product you want to publicise, don't be afraid to ask. Just use the Contact link and drop him a line. He'll be delighted to get back to you.
