Julian was our wedding photographer at Burton Court in Herefordshire and Wistanstow Village Hall. It was a summer wedding at a beautiful country house followed by a more down to earth celebration with our friends and family.
We wanted the photographs to reflect the joy and happiness of the day and we hoped that Julian would capture all those special moments. Personally, I wanted lots of photos, which were taken whilst the guests were unawares so that the end result looked natural. Even with the posed photos, I wanted there to be an element of fun and freedom. Julian fulfilled all of our wishes!
Firstly, he is a charming individual with a warm and friendly temperament. He was utterly professional without being too formal and put everyone at ease with humour.
Julian's subtle approach allowed him to melt into the background whilst still mingling amongst all of the guests effortlessly. He was the perfect photographer and I am thrilled with the results.
I would highly recommend Julian for anyone's wedding.
It was a real delight and honour having our family portraits taken by Julian. Julian has a true genuineness and special talent for making people feel relaxed and at ease. He took the time to study our requested location, he listened to what we wanted and he observed our family character.
Julian captured the essence of who we are!
Most of all we had such an amazing afternoon that was full of fun, and one that will remain a special memory of our time in Abu Dhabi.
Taking the photography course at Art Central with Julian John was extremely fun and most beneficial in helping me improve the overall understanding of what it takes to make a good photograph. Julian has a way with people and making them feel at ease and is incredibly passionate about his work, which adds so much to the experience of his classes. By the end of the course, I had a much clearer understanding of lighting, composition and also, “capturing the moment.”
The Art of Photography is an open canvas and taking Julian’s Photography Class has not only helped me grow in my photography but overall, have a greater appreciation for things that we see on a daily basis and just take for granted!
Photography gives you an entirely different perspective on so much. Julian’s is a natural, intuitive and has an exhibition that is most impressive. I would highly recommend taking Julian’s photography course to anyone wanting to have fun and improve his or her photography, regardless of your skill level and take it to the next level!
ArtCentral has worked closely with Julian in many capacities including his 'Introduction to Photography' workshop, which has proven incredibly popular with great feedback from the participants.
His highly acclaimed, limited edition prints of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque have been featured in our gallery and have sold very well. Julian is positive, dynamic and his love of all aspects of photography is clear to see. There are more joint collaborations in the pipeline including a Lightroom course and a portrait workshop.
