My name is John - and I run mcardphoto.

You can hire me to cover a wide range of events such as live music or festivals, small or large family events, public gatherings or protests - and practically anything in-between.

I am a Photographer with a keen interest for carefully selecting a collection of images which best shows off the mood and atmosphere at your event, I specialize in a candid approach, and my images always tell a story.

As well as this I can take care of your team or businesses needs - whether you are simply in need of direct to social media delivery and for someone to take the pressure off, or you are looking for someone to build out a team and take complete ownership of your digital media operation, we can make it happen.

Find examples of all of my work here, or by going to My Work in the site menu. There is also a sample gallery and contact form below!

Same day, or same hour digital delivery of your images available upon request.
