About Me

I am a photographer and film maker creating editorial and commercial work in the garden and landscape industry as well as architecture and interiors. I also work on arts, education and health initiatives in the UK and Europe. 

Clients include magazines such as The English Garden - for which I've shot many features, an 18-month series and 20 online videos - The Garden magazine (RHS) and the Garden Design Journal; as well as corporate clients and design companies including Morgan Stanley, Outdoor Design, Chris Beardshaw Gardens, KKE Architects, Olivia Kirk Gardens and Jane Southcott PR; and organisations such as Public Health Wales (NHS), The Welsh Assembly Government, Conference Connections, Cardiff University, Golley Slater PR, Cardiff County Council, Sherman Cymru and many more.

For several years, I contributed regularly to both Photography Monthly and Professional Photographer magazines, writing features and monthly columns. Awards include the Best Cinematography Award at Encounters Film Festival; and Third Prize in the RHS Photographer of the Year under 'Celebrating Gardens'. 

 

I received my MA and BA (Hons) in Film from The International Film School of Wales, and hold a Foundation in Art and Design. 

Testimonials

"I've worked with John for several years with my garden sector clients and he always delivers.  Not only does he provide stunning images to match and often exceed the brief, he charges in a no-nonsense commercial way which provides my clients with their images for an agreed and sensible flat fee for the entire job.  He is an absolute joy to work with."

Jane Southcott – MD, Jane Southcott PR

"Working with John is a breeze - stress free and enjoyable. He has ideas that are practical yet inventive, and his people skills and understanding of a client's needs is second to none. I have worked with him on many photo and video shoots for a national magazine and I look forward to working with him again in the future."
