A word from ex-patriot Canadian, now Australian photographer:
Welcome to my mind’s eye.
I received my first camera as a gift from my parents when I was 8-years-old so I really don’t know what it’s like to not be a photographer. I’m told that I took nice photographs but the words didn’t mean much to a preteen John-Frank.
I never thought I drew well and my paintings and sculptures were limited in that it was difficult to express the emotions through the medium.
With the assistance of a tutor, learning to master the camera machine allowed me to capture what I felt when I witnessed a scene, no matter how simple or complex. Colour, balance, shading, symmetry, depth; at the age of 15, these words made more sense on my SLR.
My main artistic influence is Canada’s Group of Seven painters. In my youth, I envied Linda McCartney's music and candid photography. These two influences are my grounding and I refer to them occasionally.
In mid 2012 I left my secure ‘day job’ income to dedicate time to the J-FFoto business:
My love of life’s appealing images helps me capture some unique photographs. I find it difficult to describe my approach to photography but hopefully, the images speak for themselves. I continue to expand my range and use interesting methods to capture visions.
J-FFoto is the chrysalis which sheltered many of my images. I’d like to share them with you. Please consider purchasing prints, scheduling photo shoots and camera tutoring. Contact info@J-FFoto.com
Thank you for looking through my mind’s eye.
