John's three decades in the film industry working within the camera department places him in an unique position as Unit Stills Photographer.


He has a thorough knowledge of film set etiquette, is personally known to the vast majority of any crew that he will work with and most importantly for the Stills Photographer who is given little time on set, he has the invalueable asset of their respect.


"My aim as Unit Stills Photographer is to to recreate the essence of the story through stills".


"Achieving the results with as little disturbance as possible to the actors, crew or the flow of the days work".


John's photography has been purchased by buyers throughout Australia, the U.S. and Canada. His work has hung in Panavision Australasia as well as their head office in Los Angeles.


Presently he is preparing his first book, 'Observations' based on his behind the scenes images shot over the last thirty years on set.


In  Martha Ansara's "The Shadow Catchers" celebrating the history of Cinematography in Australia the number of his images included was second only to that of The Australian Film and Sound Archive.
