A former winner of the Kodak and Country Walking
Magazine Landscape Photographer of the Year and the Ballantine International
Photographic Competition, John made his first black and white print way back in
1983, and since then has combined his love of the countryside with his passion
for landscape photography. He likes nothing better than to be out with his
camera on a crisp winter's morning waiting for the sun to rise.
As well as the Dales and Moors, his other favourite
locations are the coastline of Yorkshire, the Lake District, Northumberland and
especially the Western Isles which he tries to visit at least once every year.
John uses a 6 x 7 medium format camera for landscapes and a digital SLR for
closer work such as the many agricultural shows, steam fairs, festivals and
John produces images for advertising agencies, books,
magazines, greetings card and calendar publishers, Ordnance Survey publications
and for exhibitions and lectures.
He is currently working on Yorkshire Moors and
Coastlines to be published by Myriad Books in 2006.
