Based in Sydney, Australia John's three decades in the film industry working within the camera department places him in a unique position as a Production/Unit Still 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 Unit Still Photographer who is given little time on set, he has the invaluable asset of their respect.
"My aim as Production Still Photographer is to to tell the story of the scene through one image".
"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.
