About JD

John Docherty (JD) works full time as a scientist and graduated from University College Worcester with a degree in Biological Sciences with associated Environmental science in 2001.

JD has always enjoyed sports and started playing rugby union as a child and still continues to this day, although at a much slower pace than that of yester year. Apart from playing rugby, JD has always enjoyed watching sports, such as Bolton wanderers in the football, formula one, cricket and both codes of rugby.

The biologist in JD has always meant that there has always been a keen interest in nature, living systems and how both animals and humans work and act for as long as I can remember. I had a simple compact 'point and shoot' digital camera for a number of years, but it wasn't until I started volunteering with The Wildlife Trust in 2010 when my interest in photography really took off and bought myself an SLR. I've always believed that the photograph should 'capture the moment' and the beauty of what it is that I am trying to photograph, without the need to heavily alter an image to make it into something completly different later on through photoshop.

Although based in Bolton, John is available for a commission shoot and is happy to travel, within reason, to work with you on a shoot.

However, if you feel that my current images (see my gallery) would already enhance the walls of your office or home, then please feel free to get in touch!
