By day, a mild mannered multimedia director but by night a super-heroic rock photog armed with lens, attitude, & a vast collection of black tshirts!

"I sometimes wonder if the guy ever sleeps. Surely the camera is being clicked 24/7. Which is great for the rest of us because his stream is always fresh and inspiring. Loved it from the first day I saw it."

"Your photos of the city, or may be it would be more correct to say Your vision of your city is just glorious.
You see what others dont.
The buildings, the little corners, the streets and cables, the shops and rubbish.
I really enjoy looking at your photos.
Very very good."

"I really have to stop myself from adding all of his photos as favourites!! Hellblazer's really got an amazing eye - his photos make me fall in love with Melbourne time after time and inspire me to go out and see the wonderful alleys and slices of life that he experiences. This is definitely one instance where life and art have merged as one. Thank you for your wonderful photography."

"John has given me a direction in my life, truely. Now, I'm only 15, but his attitude to his work and the world is inspiring. I've been an on - and - off web designer for the past 4 years and seeing the work that John does, and how he runs his business tells me that I can do the same. Sure it takes a bit of hard effort, but at least I'll be doing what I love to do.
