A fantastic portfolio John, to my shame I don't often get time to view members portfolios but I'm glad I popped in to see yours. I'm just off out to camera club shortly but will certainly be back to have a more in depth look at your splendid images.

I’ve never added a comment to your PF John, thoroughly enjoy your down-to-earth and often humorous images, can relate to your take on life well, and your images add a lift to EPZ In these challenging times. Here’s to many more fun uploads, smiles, and adventures. Thanks for sharing your previous escapades!

Really enjoyed looking through your portfolio, in fact I did so from start to finish. Empathised with your comments about photos for fun without necessarily fitting the accepted norms of what does, or what does not make a good photo - I liked them all. Your portfolio matches your views perfectly. Chris

I've looked at many hundreds of portfolios over the years but I don't think I've come across one so full of the joys of life as yours.

You have a gret knack of catching people laughing, smiling, dancing, up to mischief - just enjoying life. And when I look at these photos I too smile. First class work in my view John .

Kind regards, Neil

Your work really appeals to me John. Comes across as the schoolboy standing outside the head teachers office about to get six of the best for appreciating one of the most beautiful things in life and recording them correctly. Long live the Lifesnapper. Keep up the good work John.

All your portraits and descriptions are full of positive emotions; they all reflect your character full of love to people and life.
It's is impossible (I'm sure) to full the audience, our photos betray us, our souls and insights.
I'm very glad you are here with your lovely emotions and positive energy, sharing abundantly yourself with us.
Thanks John.

Yours sincerely

Your approach to photography, EPZ and life in general is admirable John. I've enjoyed strolling through your view of the world, and found it interesting and quite uplifting. There appears to be little your won't turn your attention to, and for that I commend you. A real pleasure John, many thanks...

Hi John,
I looked at your...
new self-portrait and realized how big is the difference between you, with your open white-teeth smile and shining eyes face, and those in whose bio notes is written: "Name: XZY
About me: XZY has not yet entered any personal details."
I've seen all your photos.
I've read again your Bio introduction and fully agree with most of what you have written about your photo-philosophy, which is amazingly reflected in your interesting PF.
The Best of photo-success to you, John!

Hmmmm thought I'd already left a comment on your pf. Must be my age catching up with me ha ha (or I've left it on someone elses!!!!!). I love your work, the candid shots are great. I have to revisit as there is always so much in them. As Fran said I like your outlook on life Smile.
