    John The Photographer reviews
    Rating: 5 out of 5 stars based on 8 reviews.
    There are few things I hate more than being in front of a camera, but I needed some professional pictures taken for my upcoming book. I called John in a panic—my publisher wanted the photos within days. I dreaded the shoot but John put me immediately at ease and totally came through. It was a pleasure, and I was way more relaxed than I anticipated. Within a day and half I had a great set of photos in my publisher's hands and, more importantly, they were thrilled with the results. I highly recommend John! He was a lifesaver!
