If you come on a photography workshop what do you expect?
A mathematician to guide you through? A carer to the elderly? A Chef? A Police Officer?
John has been all of these and it was whilst managing a Helicopter Unit that he harnessed his love for photography with the commitment to go full time in the business.
That was back in 2003.
Since then John has rapidly been accepted into the upper echelons of world photography. He has sold out workshops across Europe as well as back at his Yorkshire base.
John's first book, "One Light Flash" was published in 2011 and has sold out in numerous English and Foreign Language translations.
It is his belief that no photographer can truly understand the art of photographing people without photographing Nudes.
To pose and light a body without any other obstacles will make you a better photographer of brides, models. lifestylers, models.....
His main passion though is light.. If you understand light you will get better images, regardless of how they are styled.
It is the essentials of photography that delight John. That has been recognised by numerous companies embracing him as a Brand Ambassador. Elinchrom and The Flash Centre provide his lighting and support workshops. Permajet have honoured him as an ambassador for their papers and inks. LightBlue Softwards, Portrait Pro, Animoto and Datacolor Spyder are also supporters of #TeamDenton. He is a leading educator with the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.
In 2010 he was named a Fellow of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. In 2012 he was honoured with a Master of Photography Award from the same Society, In 2015 he was invited to judge and present at WPPI in Las Vegas.
It's John's contention that if we're all in it together............we'll all succeed. Join Us.
