John Watts

John has been an avid photographer since childhood where he wandered the fields, moors and woodlands of West Yorkshire looking for dramatic landscapes and gritty textures. After a first career of almost 20 years in IT he felt compelled to follow his passion and concentrate on photography full time and has now expanded that work into film-making. His current photographic work is principally in the area of portraiture, either formally or of a more environmental nature.

"Being part of the collective has been a really fascinating and rewarding experience. Photography is often a very solitary pursuit and the opportunity to be part of a group in which to share ideas of ones own and hear others has been very interesting, the ongoing conversations for me personally has been more important than what I have made in direct relation to the group." - John Watts
