Wedding photographer John Thompson
HELLO I’M JOHN.
I am a professional wedding photographer based in Essex. I am 37 years old and I have been been running my own business ‘Pure Image Photography’ for over 10 years. I love taking pictures and I love being able to capture the happiest moments of people’s lives. I live with my partner Jane, our daughter Ruby and our Labradoodle Ted. You can see us all in the picture below (I like the way Ted is posing in this picture, he looks very regal).
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy dog walking with Ted, he’s 8 years old now, but still acts like a puppy. I am also kept busy with our daughter Ruby, who is 2 years old. I don’t seem to get much spare time nowadays, but when I do, I also enjoy playing the guitar and biking. My latest hobby is gardening, which I realise makes me sound old, but it’s strangely addictive!
I studied photography at university over 15 years ago now (back in the days before digital photography!), where I achieved a photography degree. I then went on to work at some of the most successful photography studios in the UK, before deciding to start my own business in 2007. Since then my business has gone from strength to strength and I continually push myself to create pictures that people will love, in my own style of wedding photography. I love meeting new people and being able to capture unique wedding stories every week.
I hope you enjoy having a look around my website, please feel free to contact me with any questions or to see if I’m available for your wedding.
