Hi John, I just wanted to send you an email as its my first day back at work and I have received great feedback so far about Friday night and yourself. It was a really great night and would like to thank you for being so patient and helpful. Cant wait to see the pictures.

I have hired John for reportage photography of several large international conferences since 2010 and would have no hesitation in recommending him nor indeed booking his services again. John is professional, reliable and a pleasure to work with, both on site at the events and then in the post-conference editing and supply of images. The images are excellent – John manages to capture the mood and atmosphere of the conference perfectly.

John is exceptionally easy to work with, puts everyone at ease very quickly and has the expertise to produce a very high quality of work. His perception of what I was looking for was excellent. I’m really pleased with the results and have subsequently recommended him to other businesses.

We needed some stand out product photography for our new brand and website and heard good things about John. We were not disappointed. His help, ideas and expertise were top notch and we are very pleased with the results. He’s great fun to work with and is now our go-to-photo-guy. Need product photographs? Then go to John. Highly recommended.

Working with John was great, never felt so relaxed in a photo shoot before, normally I hate doing them, But with John I got the results I wanted, He allowed me to be myself, I really enjoyed working with him.

Everything is awesome, perfect in fact, thanks a lot. I’m really happy with the shots, used one the day you gave me them and I got a casting call for an extras company in London. Thanks again, couldn’t have picked a better photographer.

John Need was terrific throughout the one-hour photoshoot. The collection of photos commissioned for the launch of my book, Hard Road, was brilliant. Creative to a fault. And he made sure the client got exactly what they wanted. Can’t recommend him highly enough.


Having been delighted with the portrait shot for my website, I asked John if he could photograph the JustBe range. He’s managed to capture the essence and freshness of the products. With so much white, it’s not as easy as it would appear. Appreciate John’s patience, eye for details, his genuine desire to take the best shots and his professionalism. ​I ​Would highly recommend John Need photography.

John Need has been Catering in Scotland’s location photographer on several occasions during the past year and, on the basis of the results so far, we will continue to utilise his services for the foreseeable future. The quality of his photographs is extremely high and he is especially adept at selecting the best backdrops for a particular location. He is also a very likeable character, which can help when introducing him to colleagues and clients during a shoot.

Business Development Director

We have worked with John on redeveloping the images for our revamped website on several occasions now. Having never worked with a photographer before I was slightly nervous but as soon as I met John he put me completely at ease. I found working with him enjoyable and informative. His images brought to life a very tired shop page. He understands completely the image we are trying to capture each time even though he is never given a brief! We have continued to use him each time new products are released and will do so.
