I provide stylish photography to personal clients and business sectors. My personal photography passion is for the natural world and I have exhibited in Somerset Art Weeks.

From wedding photography, portrait photography and events photos to personnel head shots for company web sites & creative location photography of facilities and events. Previously based in South West London, I am happy to have moved recently to West Somerset near Watchet. I am ideally placed to cover assignments in the South West such as Somerset, Devon and Cornwall and further afield

I was trained at Epsom School of Art & Design, Richmond-upon-Thames College and qualified through the British Institute of Professional Photography.

I am an established commercial photographer with a Diploma in Professional Photography and over 28 years of professional experience. I have developed a reputation for exceptional photography which have taken me around the UK, to photograph multi-million pound equipment and even 2 Prime Ministers at 10 Downing Street.

Although passionate about image making and the latest in equipment I never loose sight of what is important to clients - Professionalism. I always made customer services a priority and regularly receive testimonials saying what great photographs they received and how responsive, polite and friendly I was on, before and after the big day.

Photography is a challenging job which comes with a great deal of responsibilities. To that end I have invested heavily in the latest twin memory card cameras and backup equipment to avoid disasters. The office contains the best in computing and colour management software and hardware so that you can be sure of top quality results.

John Kemp - Photographer will provide you with beautiful, natural and creative wedding photography in a documentary style from getting ready through to the evening's entertainment. All images are supplied as high resolution.

Our Schools Service gives a different approach to the same old style seen in schools photography for years. Although contemporary, they are beautifully lit study of your little one - a quality portrait taken at school. We also offer some unique products for Schools Teams with photographs and names printed direct to the boards or heat-sealed plaques.

I am experienced in all types of events such as Anniversaries, Birthdays and Dinner Dance Balls. Rather than take over your day I specialise in unobtrusive photography, capturing the atmosphere, events and details using the latest high-end digital and film equipment.

Environmental. We are true believers in doing the right thing by our planet.
We re-use and recycle heavily and try to source local and recycled products at all times.
