I am John, a Kent family photographer based in Sutton Valence


I specialise in capturing Parties , Families and Commercial projects


My work takes me all over the UK, Europe and way beyond.

Here’s the little corner of the internet that’s all about me! When I don’t have a camera in my hand I can be found tinkering with my vintage Land Rover or walking our tiny dog, Milo. I am also husband to Philippa, my one woman marketing department and dad to two gorgeous humans!

I’m really passionate about photographing people whether it’s Parties, Family Shoots or Business Portraits. I am happiest when I’m capturing expressive, meaningful, and heartfelt photographs that will last beyond our lifetimes. Nothing makes me happier to think that I’m creating a little bit of history with every job I complete. I capture you just being yourself, I having fun and leaving me to create relaxed, informal natural images you’ll cherish forever. 

My journey as a photographer started on a holiday to Butlins when I persuaded my Dad to let me take his portrait, while he reclined in a deck chair!

The following Christmas I received my first camera, an Olympus Trip. I cherished that little camera and took it everywhere I went, but I soon outgrew the basic controls. After saving my paper round money for an absolute age, I bought my first SLR, the Olympus OM1 which still takes fantastic images. After taking my A Levels, I was lucky to be accepted at Medway College of Design where I studied Advertising & Editorial Photography for three years before getting my first job as a Fashion Photographer’s Assistant in Clerkenwell. The rest, as they say, is history!

Although I’m quite musical, I really hate to blow my own trumpet. Here’s a selection of kind words from previous clients:

“I am consumed with utter joy at your brilliant capture of all that took place. My heart is beating fast with happiness at being able to relive it all. Thank you, a thousand times thank you!” Vicky

John spent a whole Sunday with us in our little forest patch. Taking pictures of our two little daughters and us for a family album. He was an absolute pleasure to have around. Easy going with the children and completely a part of our day out . In short we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend John” Jan and Ingrid

“John has captured a beautiful moment in time of our growing family that we will forever cherish. We were totally at ease during the shoot and the photographs display John’s skill and artistry” Carlie
