THE OLYMPIC FLAME COMES TO DUMFRIES

On Thursday 21 June 2012, the Olympic Flame came through the centre of Dumfries.  I was there to capture this historic scene.  More photographs here.

ANOTHER "NAKED" CALENDAR

I am now signed up as photographer for a "naked workers" calendar raising funds for a charity called Park Safe, run by Lisa Davidson.  Work has begun with photographs of Rod Walker, our "Naked Farmer".  Watch out for further instalments!


 

EMILY SMITH, LEWIS FERGUSON and ZOE BESTEL

On Saturday 10th September I had the great pleasure of photographing a gig on the Plainstanes, Dumfries, on behalf of Dumfries and Galloway Arts.  The wonderful Emily
Smith played, supported by Lewis Ferguson and Zoe Bestel who, at only 14, is a very talented performer.

Well done to D&G Arts for organising it!

 


WHO WILL BE MY NEW MODEL?

I'm not a photographer who keeps doing the same thing year after year and I'm constantly developing new ways of working.  I'm looking for a lady to work with, testing out new ideas and techniques before unleashing them on clients.

The pay isn't great but you'll get some great free photographs!

John was given two more awards at the recent North West Master Photographer Of The Year (2011) event - one for child photography and one in the Fine Art category.

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

Other studios charge for your photoshoot and you don't even know whether you will like the results.

But be warned - we've not been asked for a refund yet!!  Follow the Portraits link for more information.
