Meet The Phanatic

About John

From simple beginnings as a teenager fiddling about in his home darkroom, through to the digital age, John has maintained a fascination with the lesser travelled paths through the forest of photography.

Through his work in the Retail sector, helping clients with visual merchandising, branding and marketing, John developed an appreciation and understanding of the natural fit for businesses to promote their products and services by embracing this new and exciting communication platform.

What our clients say

Wonderful thank you, and lovely to see you yesterday. Hope you enjoyed meeting the teams! Thanks again for your excellent work, I will recommend PhotoPhanatics onto other Mediaworks departments!

Isla Macleod – Production Manager Local Productions Mediaworks

John took great care and displayed painstaking attention to detail photographing our premises for Google. He returned several times to re-shoot some sections and we were delighted with the resulting listing on Google. I would not hesitate to highly recommend John to any business looking at improving their online profile.

Chris Speedy - General Manager Electric Bikes NZ Ltd.

Thanks John - the 'virtual tour' you created for our business makes our premises not only look inviting, but professional as well. It adds an amazing, professional look to our small business, and I'm really proud to direct our phone in customers to 'see for themselves' where and how we operate. It gives our new clients a real feel for what we do. You made it so easy to set up, film and put it out there and all we had to do was say YES! We have had several positive comments and the feedback has been particularly pleasing. Many thanks!
