John King

As a member of the AIPP, John has been working in the Photographic Industry since completing his studies at The Australia Air Force School of Photography in 1985. John's passion for photography has seen him move from operating a small business in his home, to being the Principal Photographer in his successful Newcastle Photographic business, specialising in weddings and portraiture.

John's main enthusiasm with his photographic work is to capture the naturalness of his clients, and emphasise the mood and passion of the interactions between people. John believes that to be able to capture this is important, especially during the photo shoot, where people may be feeling in an slightly 'unnatural environment'.

John has been greatly influenced by the French photographers of the 40's and 50's, such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, whom he admires for his ability to capture what he describes as 'the subtle, real life aspects of his subjects'. Although John loves the variety of styles now available in the photographic process, he does favour the use of sepia as a medium, which he feels creates a warmer image and enhances the human aspect of the print.

Renee King

Renee studied Photography at TAFE has been working as a Photographer since 1998, with experience in the Newcastle and Hunter area ranging from family portraits to large weddings. Renee admits her favourite part of photography is being the 'sneaky photographer', capturing those wonderful candid and spontaneous moments that are unplanned, and often unrealised by people! She loves to capture the interactions between people that show genuine unplanned emotions and natural facial expressions. This is all reflected in Renee's personal style of photography, favouring a relaxed atmosphere with minimal structured posing.

Like John, Renee has always been drawn to the emotion which sepia photography captures, but loves the flexibility that digital photography now offers in being able to match the photograph with the most effective exposure to capture the mood.
