Most of us are aware of the big names in photography, but what about the jobbing photographer, those working hard at their craft to earn an income.

Has the industry become devalued in the digital era – with all camera owners deemed photographers by the general public – are full-time professional photographers an endangered species?

Or, can they still be found working diligently in our cities, towns and villages – not only providing their clients with great photographs, but earning a good living too. With this in mind I set out to discover a little more from those at grassroots level working hard to keep our industry alive, promoting good practice and providing a professional product.

We met last June during the Socieities' Judging Workshop in Prestatyn – why did you travel from Sweden to attend?

I’m very interested in expert performance in general, and specifically in photography. I think a judging workshop is an excellent way of not only supporting the organisation, but also for continual professional development of myself as a photographer.

All about John: what he loves, hates, can't live without and what makes him tick. I love the art of Do, or The Way, as the Japanese would say. The way of doing something wholeheartedly, with intention and attention, makes me happy.
