Hi, thanks for stopping by...
My name is John Patrick Fletcher, I’m a London based freelance photographer specialising in Sports and Portraits.
Being focused and prepared is the most important part of my job, I have to be ready to react when the moment occurs, whether its on the field photographing an athlete in a defining sporting moment or on location photographing a model for a client.
After a failed attempt to become a professional football player at a very young age, many years later with the encouragement of my late father, I took up photography in my 20s. What started out capturing nine to five office workers on cold wet gloomy pitches in empty bleak surroundings for the local paper, to today photographing professional athletes & getting published in major national and international newspapers and websites, in particular, ESPN, NBC Sport, BBC Sport, The Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Sun, Daily Mail, Daily Star, When Saturday Comes Magazine and Total Football Online.
My weapons of choice for body & glass is Canon, and for strobes, the rapidly growing Phottix Pro lighting system. My sports photographs are currently represented by California based agency Action Plus Sports Images (previously Andrew Orchard Sports Photography).
