After studying photography at college, I worked as a "in-house" photographer for a large company in Essex for over 20 years. These years gave me a wealth of experience as the subject matter I photographed was extremely varied. I am now working as semi professional freelance.
I have a "biography" page on my website if you have the desire to read........

Since Joining Purestorm in October 2008, I have undertaken over 40 shoots, working with models at all levels of experience.
Take a look at: and
Many thanks for viewing my profile.
If you also have some time to visit my website, you can see some examples of recent work, hopefully getting across how passionate I am about photography.
After working as a professional photographer in industry for many years, I am now working on a part time freelance basis. I enjoy photographing many different subjects, but after concentrating mainly on travel and aviation over the years, I am finding great enjoyment in model photography, hence me joining Purestorm in October 2008.
Since then I have built up my portfolio to what I feel is a reasonable standard. My work ranges from headshots and fashion through to lingerie and glamour. I would like to offer my services to either new models just starting out, or more experienced models looks for a portfolio refresh. My preference is for outdoor/indoor location or home shoots, although I do have access to studio lighting and backdrops if needed.
Please enquire for details of inclusive rates for a shoot package.
I do undertake limited TFCD work if I feel that either the model or the project will offer something different for my portfolio, so feel free to ask, but PLEASE do not be offended if the answer is a polite “no”. I try my best to answer all messages.

A bit about me:
I am a friendly easy going, happily married man, with a passion for photography, trying to get better and better results all the time !
When we arrange a shoot, I will be reliable, on time, and your comfort with all aspects of the shoot will be of paramount importance. My feedback from models I have worked with to date I think shows how important this aspect of our working relationship is to me.
I am sure we will have a great shoot, some fun, and create some great images.
Many thanks

Here are a few comments from messages relating to recent shoots:

“I received the final edits disk, just wanted to say thanks so much John! Really really pleased! Hopefully I get to work with you again!”

“Yes I did get the CD's and I'm so pleased with them all. Thank you so much for the time and effort that u put in to doing them for me.
I hope you are ok and really looking forward to our next shoot x”

“I’m so looking forward to seeing the images, I’m not just saying it but was definitely one of my favourite shoots so thank you so much for a great day and great shoot.
As far as your photography goes you are a brilliant Tog and full of ideas I can definitely see that your feedback is 100% accurate.”

"hi just got the disc and had a look through i think we got some banging pics thank you so much i really love them!!!!"

"hi babe, finally got the laptop sorted love all the pictures, you did a brilliant job, hope to work together in the near future xxxxxxxx "

"I really love them they look totally amazing thank you so much lovely work :)"

There are occasions where a shoot may be arranged many weeks in advance. I will always communicate with the model a week or so before to confirm that all is OK. If at any time during this period, communication stops, and messages are unanswered, I will have no alternative to assume that the shoot is not going to happen. I try my very best to be professional and would appreciate the same from any model wishing to work with me.


I have had the pleasure of working with some great models since joining Purestorm, and I offer my grateful thanks to each and every one of you for your hard work and enthusiasm during shoots, with a special mention to the models that I frozen half to death, shooting outdoor fashion and swimwear in mid winter! It really has been great fun, and I have enjoyed every minute of working with you all.
A very big “thank you”

I had a great shoot with John yesterday, having previously worked together before I was really excited for our second shoot. Having been my first location shoot John made me feel really comfortable & was very patient with me whilst I was being petrified of the bees & wasps. I am extremely pleased with my photos & the outcome. I think highly of John's work he is an amazing photographer & I deffinetly reccomend him to other models who want to create fantastic images. It was a joy to work with you again John, look forward to shooting in the future x

Had my 2nd shoot with John at The Photo Studio in Essex on 8th May 2010. Another amazing shoot! Communication before and during the shoot was first class, we discussed ideas beforehand and worked together to produce some top images. John is an absolute pleasure to work with, very down to earth, easygoing guy and makes the model feel relaxed right from the start. He also made my partner Stuart feel very welcome. He was full of ideas and poses and even suffering from a head cold (and loosing his voice towards the end of the shoot) did not stop him coming up with great ideas. I would like to also note that even not feeling 100% he still made 100% effort to arrive on time and carry out the 5hr shoot with ease. A true professional, great to work with, and very very highly recommended to all. Whether you are an amateur or professional model you will be guaranteed an amazing shoot and fantastic images. I am really pleased with the images I have seen so far and cant wait to see the rest! Looking forward to working with him again, hopefully soon! Thanks John for a fantastic day xxx

Had an amazing shoot with John today at my Model Day at The Works Studio, St Ives. First class communication before and during the shoot and was great to finally get the opportunity to work together. John is a fantastic photographer, he interacted well throughout the whole shoot and was full of poses and ideas to help achieve the best possible results. Between us we got some great shots and I cant wait to see the final images! A very easy going, down to earth, friendly, professional photogapher. I cant recommend John enough, book him now as you definitely wont be disappointed! Looking forward to our next shoot already! Thanks so much John, was an absolute pleasure :) xx

I had a shoot with John a couple of days ago and I really enjoyed it! Everything went really well and John was very professional but at the same time relaxed and friendly. He came up with some great ideas and made me feel very comfortable throughout the shoot. I hope we will shoot together again at some point and would definitely recommend him to any other model! Mia x
