John Walmsley

John has been a professional, freelance documentary photographer since leaving Guildford School of Art in 1968.  People are at the centre of his work, usually everyday people doing what they do.  If the photos look as if he just wandered by and captured them then he’s happy!  He believes it’s better if the skill and hard work are not even hinted at.  That, of course, has the downside that people can think it’s easy.  It’s really not.

John likes to carefully think things through and bring a personal approach.  Making sure to capture real life as it happens and be ready for what might come next.

John will host a meet-the-artist session on Tuesday 12th March from 10 to 11.30am, if you’d like to come along and chat.  The café will be open for a drink.
