He regularly works with writers for publications. He was commissioned to supply location photographs for the official biography of Sean Connery ‘Being a Scot’ (Weidenfeld & Nicolson 2008), ‘Renewing Old Edinburgh: the enduring legacy of Patrick Geddes’ (Argyll Publishing 2010), and recently ‘Edinburgh’s Colonies – housing the workers’ (again Argyll Publishing 2011). Currently working on a long-term project documenting the changing face of the Edinburgh’s Old Town.
John has a keen interest in architecture, old and new, and was commissioned by the architects to photograph the Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh during the final stages of its construction in 2004. He has also photographed smaller projects for architects – restaurants, private houses and so on.
Unlike most photographers he knows, John actually likes photographing weddings! For one thing, people are (hopefully!) in a good mood. And the immediacy and opportunity for social interaction are in strong contrast to his other, often more solitary work. As well as taking more formal group shots, he likes to take informal photographs which convey the atmosphere of the occasion. He is happy to discuss clients’ requirements, and quote accordingly.
