John joined Fotospeed seven years ago and has promoted their products as a lecturer and judge in the Midlands area. He loves taking Nature, Landscapes, Motorsport and Portraits.

Quote from John:

“I have enjoyed photography for most of my life I started printing in the darkroom, processing black and white and colour negative film, moving over to digital printing twelve years ago

My portfolio contains a wide range of subjects – portraits, landscapes, nature, and sport photography of all types, as both colour and monochrome prints. I also enjoy infrared digital photography, producing both mono and colour infrared images.

Fotospeed Imaging has sponsored me for the past eight years, This enables me to use the many types of inkjet papers they market. I use the Fotospeed ink system, these pigment inks are archival up to one hundred years.

I travel extensively around the Midlands, visiting photographic societies, as both a judge and lecturer.”
