John developed a passion for photography while training at the National Art School. He has since decided to turn his passion into a creative service. He believes photography is more than just knowing about cameras - it's more importantly about interaction with his subjects and clients to show them in their best light, to communicate their vision, or to capture the spirit of an event.
Photography to me is a unique combination of vision, technique, feeling, luck, and perhaps most importantly, interaction with people/your subject. There's a tremendous excitement I get when I've positioned myself into the right place, and press the shutter at the right time, to capture a moment. And when a client tells me how happy they are with the photos I've taken, I know I've succeeded in creating something special for them.
I enjoy shooting portraits/headshots, and events/weddings the most. There's a 'people' aspect to photography that I love. Shooting portraits and headshots allows me to work with my subject and help them bring their personality and inner life out. I love shooting events because every event has a story to it, and it's an opportunity to capture the story as it unfolds. In particular, weddings have so much drama and emotion to them that they're an absolute joy to shoot.
