John Potter Photography


John Potter B.Ed (Hons) LRPS

Throughout my whole life I have been drawn to the arts. I enjoyed painting and drawing as a youngster but struggled to create satisfying pictures, and whilst growing up in Tadcaster, a small town on the river Wharfe in Yorkshire, I developed a love of the countryside and a desire to express myself somehow through art and design. I picked up my first SLR camera in my mid-twenties and was instantly blown away by the images I could see and create when looking directly through the lens. The next twenty two years were spent happily in teaching. In 2005 I left the teaching profession so that i could run and develop my own photography business.

I am based in York, a beautiful historic city with two national parks and the glorious Yorkshire coast on my doorstep. I run landscape photography workshops and courses throughout northern Britain, and have a successful and rapidly expanding greeting card range.

I try, when creating images, to go beyond the obvious, and am constantly looking to develop my vision, seeking to record textures, lines, curves, rhythms and unexpected compositions that once I would have passed by.

I recently completed a year long commissioned project for Country Publications (Dalesman etc.) to provide all of the images for Mike Pannetts new book "Mike Pannetts Yorkshire".
