Who I Am? Where Do I Come From? &What Do l do?

I now specialise in three different types of photography, all of which have a connection and interaction with one another and are equally connected to the natural world. The different genres are; Wildlife, Environmental and Floral Fine Art/Still Life. My work is now represented worldwide by some of the worlds largest stock agency’s and distributors, Eight in all.

Extremely high on my list of priorities is conservation, preservation and education.

A number of my images are used not only used to convey a story and my messages. As well as supporting many published articles and reviews. Hopefully my images will not only help to raise the awareness of what is needed to raise the protection of the natural world, but also to help make people think about the cleaning up of the worlds environment in every aspect. This message needs to be conveyed to everyone, irrespective of gender, age, race, health, education, religion and wealth.

Throughout the years, my photographic achievements have gone from strength to strength, resulting in being extremely competitive at a very high and professional level. One of my highest achievements was to win first prize in an international wild life competition. The competition carried a first prize, a two week trip to the Falkland Islands via Chile. This was not only awesome but also totally free of charge!!

Anyway a little more about me, my background, and my family.

I have two superb children with four brilliant grandchildren.

My earlier working career was to spend many happy years in the music industry, working in recording, post production and mastering studios. In 1979 l John's Mastering Studiodecided to move back up north and open my own audio mastering facility complete with a factory to produce pre-recorded audiocassettes. This resulted in being the largest factory outside London and the Home Counties. They factory produced prerecorded audio cassettes and vinyl for some of the most well known artists, largest record companies and publishers in the industry. Following 1984 the factory also introduced the mass production of CD’s and later DVD’s. During the period of 1988 to 1991 l was very highly involved in the transcribing and implementation of the “Copyright & Patent Act 1988″ from the white paper to a practical working document for the music, spoken word and film industries.  John's Mastering Studio

In 1998 our mastering facilities became the very first independently owned audio forensic facility to be registered to the UK’s Crown Prosecution Services (CPS), The Police authority’s of GB, The DSS and The Ministry of Defence.
