John Mitchell – Storyteller. Artist. Photographer.
John Mitchell captures his subjects at their emotional high point. It’s part art and part science. His technical mastery is unrivalled. The heart and passion John pours into his photography knows no bounds.
John is an engaging storyteller, consummate artist and a peerless master photographer. However, not all of John’s clients have featured smiling portraiture. For eight years, John was the Civilian Forensics Technician with the Waterloo Regional Police Service.
His career started as a part-time photographer in 1971. Over the years he’s been fortunate enough to study under some of the great photographers of our time, including Blair, Stock, Ziser, Gilbert, Box and Horvath. When a member of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), through his success John earned many distinguished awards that you can read about here.
Like the great masters in any field, John continues to expand his knowledge and experience, never satisfied to rest on past achievements. He studies the mannerisms of subjects before picking up a camera, studiously paints with light, and prints his own work.
It’s just what you’d expect from an engaging storyteller and brilliant artist, who, by the way, also happens to be a photographer.
