At the same time he also freelanced for Welsh and English publications, and
for whoever would buy his photography work and his occasional writing. The
awards flowed within the Welsh and English Photographic Federations, and also
at the Welsh National Eisteddfod [a festival of the arts] on a regular basis.
John's work also found recognition in several nationally distributed British
AND SO TO THE PRESENT
John ran a full-time photo studio in the mountains of the McCall, Idaho, from
1985 to 1998 when he moved to Idaho's capital, Boise. Still full-time, John
works from a home office shooting commercial projects, stock images, creating
and leading photography
tours for small
groups etcetera. The latter is a source of much stock.
Since his arrival in the U.S.A. John has been
widely published in many British and Canadian magazines including Natural
History and Farm and Ranch Living here in the United States . . .
plus many other magazines and projects in-between.
He has written 80 plus photography columns, teaches the 'photographic arts' at
conventions and seminars, and plans to have a 'coffee table' book of images on
release in the next 'decade' [he likes to be realistic!].
JOHN AS A PRODUCER AND
PRESENTER OF 'MULTI-IMAGE' PROGRAMS
John also specializes in what the British term as 'slide/sound' production. In
the U.S.A. this might be termed as 'multi-media' or 'audio-visual'. Perhaps
the more accurate term of 'multi-image' goes a little further in conveying the
delicacy, deftness, sensitivity, emotion and creativity that John puts into
his two-projector work. His programs are collectively titled 'Visual
Journeys', and have been screened at many conventions and business meetings
For more details go to the
multi-image presentations page.
Because of the recognition brought about by his
presentations, John has been asked to photograph and produce various
customized pieces for a number of businesses and organizations over the years.
He believes that integrity emanates from the very heart of a person, and
[should] touch all things one is involved in. For John,
this is also based solidly in spiritual values which will be reflected in
attitude, care shown, and a general 'can do' disposition.
A LAST WORD
You will have noticed that John is certainly not
a one-subject photo specialist. He is a photographer in every sense of
the word, and his experience in many photographic fields gives him
insights, perspectives and solutions in all the photographic situations
he finds himself in. It is also reflected in in his vast and varied photo
subjects in the stock library.
In other words, in John
you'll get a wealth of experience, true artistry, and someone who is very easy
to work with.
