I first discovered photography after buying an old Kodak Box Brownie in a jumble sale. My dad showed me how to develop the film (remember that) in our cellar and I quickly became enthralled by the process. After an 18th birthday present of a Nikon and spending far too much time in the school dark room, I knew that photography was going to be my life. After rejecting some more conventional ‘career paths’, I graduated from Northumbria University with a BA Hons in Contemporary Photography and set about perfecting my craft.

30 years later and I continue to provide commercial photography, family portraiture and video services throughout England as well as my home in the North East. I am still just as excited as ever about capturing the essence of someone special or making your business shine. Great photography elicits powerful emotions.

I take a fresh approach to every commission. I’m always striving to produce original imagery be it a family portrait for the home or a commercial image for marketing a business. The best results are achieved by listening to my clients from the start to make sure I understand your vision. I’ve had particular experience of working with vulnerable sections of society and those affected by significant life events where working with sensitivity is uppermost.

I am John Faulkner and thank you for visiting my website. I do hope you like my work and feel free to get in touch with me any time.

“The quality of John’s images are immediately apparent, capturing people at their best, and putting them at ease. the quality of the image is matched by the quality of finish. Behind these images John is a true professional and for both projects he understood our brief and delivered some stunning photos on time and on budget.”

“John is a very fine photographer indeed. Working under a lot of pressure and to a busy schedule, he produced some wonderful photographs that the client and myself could not have been happier with. A real pleasure to work with, I can’t recommend John highly enough. I hope to work with him again soon.”
