Something About John Hi, I'm a husband, Dad of two great teenagers, a chocolate connoisseur, a traveller, Arsenal football fan and dog lover. But here in this space, I am a professional photographer, with loads of great experiences and stories to tell. I've been a professional portrait, lifestyle and documentary photographer for some time now, since 1987! Wow, that still amazes me. I've travelled to nearly 60 countries, met some awesome people, had some really great adventures and also managed to pick up a few awards along the way too. Even today my work straddles both commercial, advertising, editorial and private portrait clients. I love the variety that my work brings, never knowing where my photography will take me next. I'm very lucky to have found a profession that I've loved from an early age, and which I still love doing, I can't ever imagine doing anything else. So after all these years, you'd think that I must be good at taking the odd photograph? Well, I'll let you be the judge of that. Do take a look at the images on this site, and if you're impressed or like what you see, then don't be shy, get in touch and let's work together on a shoot, project or campaign. There something for nearly everyone here and I promise you, you'll love working with me and at the end of the shoot, you'll have a fantastic set of images that you can either use for business or maybe just for yourself.

Apart from the physical challenges of albinism it also brings social and cultural challenges. They face discrimination, violence, ridicule and even dangerously superstitious legends that cost human li
- The Forgotten CowboysAs a ten-year-old boy playing cowboys with friends at school in England, I was never allowed to be a cowboy; I could only be a Native American Indian. I was told: "Black boys were never cowboys" or "Have you ever seen a black cowboy?" I had to admit that I had never seen a single black cowboy. The only cowboys we ever saw were your white archetypal squared-jawed, American gunslinging heroes. Think of our screen legends; The Lone Ranger, John Wayne, Gary Cooper, Roy Rogers, Clint Eastwood, right
