“I needed a professional photo as I felt I was not getting enough work. A friend of mine recommended John. I called him and we made arrangements to meet the following day. John was punctual and he knew where he wanted to shoot the pictures. He is also very knowledgeable about how to look. We shot for about an hour and he said to give him a little time and he will preview the photos right then and there. When he presented the photos I couldn’t believe what I was viewing. Top quality photos at a fraction of the cost. His photos are very professional and artistic. He really is talented in his field. His photos have already gotten me work right of the bat. I would recommend John for all your photo needs. Thanks again John” ~ David


“I needed some ‘professional’ headshots done for some time. I ran across John with Ridings Photography and he explained he could come to me, at my convenience, which was huge to me at the time. He also would charge me much less than many of the other studios I am familar with…and as an actor, I know most of them in the area.

I was allowed many wardrobe changes. He also gave me anywhere from 3-10 times (or more) the number of photos than any other studio AND I could have them ALL on a CD. I did not have to choose just the one or two shots the other studios would have charged me extra for.

When I received my photos, I was absolutely thrilled !! John is very, VERY good at what he does and my photos proved it. Now I recommend John to all of my acting friends… and anyone I hear that is looking to get great family                                                        photos or professional headshots!…including YOU!” ~ Larry (from the Walking Dead)
