Shots is John Washington, a photographer and graphic designer based in Bolton, Lancashire, UK. John holds a first class honours degree in graphic design.
This web site provides me with a vehicle to exhibit my personal photography and hopefully improve along the way, and for those who want to see a small selection of my graphic design work it can be found here

If you want to commission me for a design or photography project then please do not hesitate to get in touch either by email or phone. Most of the images on this site are available for purchase either as a print or on CD-ROM (please contact to discuss). A seperate website will shortly be available with prints for sale.

As this website expands I will be placing a lot more information about my work and links to other galleries that relate to my other work.

For those who have helped
My career took a massive change about 6 years ago. I formed Washington Ryan a creative design company together with Leanda Ryan . Starting from scratch we built up a nice little enterprise and worked for many large public organisations and small to medium sized businesses.

Over the years I found my interest in photography developing and to this end I eventually made a move into this area of work although I still continue to work as a graphic designer.

I have made many friends over the past 6 years, people who have helped me along the way.
Leanda Ryan, Keith Bates (K-TYPE), Brian Rowson (Rowson Print), Andrew Fowles (AF Reprographics), Trevor Johnson (Via Mcr), Dave McMurrugh (Bolton Metro and Oldham Council), Rebbeca and Isla (University of Bolton), Andy Walker, Nicola Brown, Allison Smith, Gaynor Cox, (Bolton Metro). All of the Bolton Business Support Unit team. Ian Littlewood (photographer), David Eccles (Fudge Studios), Jonathon Cherry (JDCUK), Steve Haworth (Cherry Red Design).
