More about the photographer John Gilchrist, the man behind the camera.

The passion for digital photography kicked in shortly after the birth of our third child, my daughter. Enthusiastically photographing our gorgeous new-born attracted the attention of our sharp-eyed midwife. Seeing an overcome lunatic jumping around with a camera prompted the midwife to ask, "Is this your first baby?"

Answering quickly and blurting out "No” was my initial response then followed by a thoughtful pause I answered, "My third …but it is my first digital camera."

There it began; unwittingly a photography path had presented itself thanks to the value of digital hardware being so convenient.  Here was an impromptu turning point that had a novice photographer unintentionally decide it was time to progress interests to another level. From there the fixation had a strong hold and things moved on rather quickly after that.

Realising the web was an ideal vehicle for self-promotion encouraged new thinking, could combining my enthusiasm with photography along with my IT skills produce a viable wedding photography website. Curiosity played a part; JohnGilchrist.com was the natural progression and has been a work in progress ever since.
